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.

Search Types

Beaches, lakes, yards, parks, fields, homesteads. I have waterproof metal detectors and can search up to 5 feet of water, and will occasionally do shallow water dives of 30 feet or less. If you lost your ring in the snow call me ASAP.

Search Locations

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 part-time hobby.

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!
