Richard called me from his home in Seal Beach, CA., after losing his gold wedding ring, either in his garden or on a walk to the park yesterday.
He had retraced his walk to the park and couldn’t visually find his ring. Richard believed that it might be in his garden where he had installed 30 ft. of plastic landscape edging. He thought if he rented a metal detector it would save digging up the garden again. Searching online he found TheRingFinders and he called me.
When I arrived a couple hours after we talked on the phone, he showed me the area. We had a little electrical interference that I was able to stabilize. Even though he wasn’t sure where the ring was lost, I assured him that after scanning the area he had worked, we could at least eliminate that zone.
Within a few minutes I got two strong signals. The second one turned out to be Richards’s very sentimental wedding ring. I didn’t check the other signal. It was probably an aluminum pull tab or a nickel which gives a similar signal as a gold ring.
It was great to meet and help Richard find his ring. He was able to finish his day taking care of his other projects instead sifting through his garden or trying to learn how to use a rented metal detector.
