    14K Wedding Ring Found & Returned!


    I received a call from a friend last week; he works for one of my equipment rental customers. He told me that, "he had just received a call from a guy who wanted to rent a metal detector to find a wedding ring he'd lost while laying sod around his new garage". My friend told him "they didn't rent metal detectors, but he knew a guy who might be able to help." Luckily, I had to make a trip to Eastern Ontario this week and so we arranged to meet in the closest town to the guy's house and I followed him there.

    The guy's wife Leslie greeted us when we arrived and immediately told me that, "it was very unlikely that I would find her husband's ring as he had turned over 100+ pieces of sod feverishly looking for the ring but couldn't find it"!

    I started to grid the yard and quickly found a beautiful piece of aluminum flashing! After about 15mins. with very few good signals, I got an 82 - 84 reading. I pinpointed the signal, rolled back the sod and there it was! Leslie couldn't believe I had found it!

    Thanks for looking,
    Dave

    That pretty smile on the wife's face was worth it all, wasn't it? Hope you are well rewarded for the good deed.

    It definitely was worth it OD!
    As you well know, the warmth you get in your heart when you can help a total stranger find something that they hold dear is indescribable!

    Thanks for your post,

    You can say that again RingFinder!
    There's no feeling quite like returning something treasured that's been lost to the owner!

    Thanks for your post,
