- Land/Shallow Water Search
Cost For My Service
I work on a reward basis. That means you pay what it is worth to you and what you can afford to have me find your lost ring.
I charge a callout fee. If the ring is not found, this covers my fuel expenses. We can discuss this when you call.
Beaches, lakes, yards, parks, fields, homesteads. I have waterproof metal detectors and can search up to 5 feet of water. If you lost your ring in the snow call me ASAP. I will refer you to a certified diver for deep water searches.
Wisconsin, Northern Michigan, also Worldwide... Contact me if you are outside my area to discuss travel.
Tom Caldie's Bio
I am a semi-retired college professor who has a passion for metal detecting that I have turned into a full-time hobby.
I own a metal detecting equipment distribution business if you would like to become a detectorist and look for your lost items on your own! (Warning: It is fun, and possibly addicting!)
I have found hundreds of rings and other treasured items over a 15-year period, and have references who will vouch for my trustworthiness.
If you feel there is hidden treasure on your property and you would like to discuss a search, please give me a call.
I look forward to helping you recover what is very special to you!
