Bobcat Grading is very similar to other metal detecting techniques. To be a successful metal detectorist you must know about the different bobcat grading systems that are used in the field. It is quite easy to get this information because Bobcat provides detailed information on each type of bobcat that they offer. Using these grades can help to provide clues for the type of metal that you are looking for.
A Bobcat Grading System is really quite simple, if you understand it. Simply put a metal that is near a field mark it as a marginal mark. Then if the metal is not near the field to mark the metal is less marked iron.
If the metal is near the field mark it is called a marginal mark. Finally, if the metal is less marked iron it is called a less marked iron.
If you would like to know what grade metal is, it is much easier. Simply add the field mark, if it is still there then it is a marginal mark.
If the metal is not near the field mark and you have added it you are now looking at a less marked iron. Then, if the metal is not near the field to mark the less marked iron the metal is called a less marked iron.
You must always remember that if the metal is close to the field mark it is a marginal mark. It may be a marginal mark but you should still use a tool and maybe a smaller rod for this technique.
Another thing to remember is that if the metal is not near the field mark it is a less marked iron. The same theory goes for metal that is not near the field mark.
Bobcat Grading is a good way to determine if the metal is worth the trouble or if it should be scrapped. If you have any doubt in your mind about whether or not a metal is worth the effort just go ahead and try to grade it.
