Perhaps dowsing rods are used in some scams, but my own personal experience says otherwise. People will say, "Well, even if you're not scamming, you are subtly moving the rods, perhaps unconsciously."
A plumber taught me this. We were looking for a broken pipe underground. I used two copper rods, a bit thicker than solid electrical wire, bent in the shape of "L" You hold onto the small pieces very loosely, just enough so they don't fall out of your fists, and let the larger pieces be out level in front of you. You touch your knuckles together and walk. When the rods find something, they cross--completely of their own volition. When you find something you can back up, and the rods will un-cross themselves.
The most amazing thing about the experience was the amount of apparent energy. This was WAY MORE than just a subtle nudge, way more than gravity working on a slight tilt of your wrists. Those rods crossed with strength. Had I not personally experienced this I would never have believed it was possible.
I have no idea why this works. I just know I have personally experienced that it does.edit on 6/3/2012 by schuyler because: (no reason given)
If a stream of water can bend in such an "impossible" way because of a small amount of static, I don't see any reason why the "bend" can't happen at the stick-end of the equation.
WATCH also the video "Divining Rods and Electricity INFO"for more information...some theory about the "Divining Rod Phenomenon"
L-Rod moved only by the power of the EMField...confusing ? yes it is ...!!!
but quit interesting ...the signals where comes out of the ground can be detected cy electronic devices ....but is not simple to build it...it works like a passive radar...maybe you know this kind of detection...tectonic gaps got different electrical captures the the ground beside it....

Everything that flows produces an electromagnetic field. The rods are reacting to the field by crossing. It works for water pipes, electrical wires and anything else that "flows".
I actually do the activity with my Physics students when we discuss electromagnetism and they get really excited about it.
