I was contacted by one of my equipment dealers here in Ontario on Monday, as he knows I metal detecting as a hobby. He told me, โ€œthat one of his workers had lost their wedding ring in 12 โ€“ 18โ€ of snow while cutting logs on his property.โ€ I told him, "that Iโ€™d swing by on Wednesday to see if I could find it." When I arrived at the site, I had to wait for the workers to move the machinery as it was creating too much background noise for my detector. About five minutes after they moved the log loader, I got a solid โ€™80โ€™ on my Deus. I called the owner over and let him pop his ring out of the snowโ€ฆ was he ever happy! :hello2:

The day that he lost the ring, he went to a local hardware store and bought a detector for $500. But when he returned to the site, he said โ€œthat he couldnโ€™t hear anything with the unit.โ€ My first thought wasโ€ฆ โ€œdid you remember to put the batteries in?โ€ :icon_scratch:The owner was very grateful, likely due to the fact, that he didnโ€™t have to tell his wife heโ€™d lost it. :laughing7:

Thanks for looking,
Dave

Good job. Good deeds and actions like that give metal detecting some good publicity and a good name. Well done.

Thanks very much traveller. :thumbsup:

Dave, wtg I knew you'd ace it!
Thank you Bill, it's such a great feeling when we can help someone in need like this.

Good on you!
Thanks CD.

Thank you RC.

Way to save the day, Antiquarian.
Thanks WD, hope you and your husband are feeling better these days. :icon_thumleft:

Double thumbs up and I will have a shot or 2.... maybe 4.. in your honor!!!!:headbang:
Did you figure out why his newly purchased Bounty Hunter didn't get the job done?
Thanks for your post Viking. I don't think he knew how to use the settings, I didn't really ask him about his 'detecting experience'. But we all remember how frustrating it was when we got our first detector. :icon_scratch:

WTG Dave great save and return. Congratulations :occasion14::occasion14:
Thanks Jim, I found it funny that he hadn't told his wife that he'd lost it. :laughing7:
