Metal Detector Man metal detecting service So.Calif. by Stan Ross, member of TheRingFinders. Call 949-500-2136 .. Available 24/7 ………
Laura had lost her wedding ring in her front yard. After returning from her OB doctor where he recommended she not wear her ring as her fingers were beginning to swell. Laura temporally put her wedding ring on her smaller finger.
Later that day she had been standing on her front porch shaking a blanket when the ring went flying off her finger. She was several months pregnant which made it difficult to search for the ring. Then she remembered seeing recommendations for TheRingFinders on line from people on her local community forum.
I was able to meet Laura at her home on Mission Viejo shortly after her call. Even though it was a small search area, it took about 45 minutes to locate the small wedding ring. I typically do a thorough scan with my detector. The I visually search the sidewalk and porch area. Lastly, I get out the hand held pinpointer detector to get the areas underneath plants and up next to metal objects.
The ring was found visually a couple inches from a metal post that masked any signal of the ring. If you rent a metal detector they don’t tell you about electrical interference, other metal trash and most the time rental people don’t know how to use the detector. Also, the quality of the detectors leave a lot to be desired.
Laura was ecstatic to get her ring back. It had a long history including having to be cut off her finger several years ago when she with her last pregnancy.
