1st Ring recovery of 2018!
I got a message yesterday from Alexis in Jackson NJ. During an argument with her fiance’ as he was walking alongside his car she took off her engagement ring and threw it at him. It bounced off his car and disappeared. She found me and 2 other guys threw the Ringfinders website. The first person there was not able to find it. I then went with my Minelab Ctx 3030 with the 11″ coil and searched all over the driveway and into the yard in the snow on both sides of the driveway in -5 temperatures. After 3hrs i too was unable to find it. So fellow Ringfinder and friend Dennis Burligame agreed to go the next morning to try as well. I also went back to meet him and continue the search only this time i switched to my 6″ coil as the driveway is concrete and had a lot of iron reinforcement which made it difficult to search. Dennis and i both searched the same area and decided to narrow down the area and even though we both went over the same spots with the 11″coils we could not find it. I went over the same spots now using my 6″ coil and right near a heavy iron tone i got a blip of a good high tone signal. I then moved the snow around with my foot away from the iron and the high tone came in much clearer. As i bent down to move the snow around by hand it was at that moment i saw part of a ring sticking out! If it were not for that 6″ coil i would not have been able to locate it!. Needless to say the customers were very happy! Big thanks to Dennis Burligame for the assist!

The trees have ears..?
The trees have eyes you might be saying, however deep in the mountains of northeast Washington they had ears. What I mean is that, a gentleman named Skip had lost his hearing aid while out hunting. After looking in the dark for a few minutes and returning the next day to find that it had snowed, Skip decided to look for help. He called a local metal detecting shop and asked about renting a detector. The sales man knew he wouldn’t have any luck so he told him to look up the Ring Finders. So a few days ago I returned Skip’s call and set up a date to go looking. it was 19 degrees, the ground was frozen, but the sun was out. It took one and half ours to drive out to the location, 5 minutes to walk to the area, and 2 minutes for me to turn on my Whites DFX. After Swinging it around and just barely hearing a change in the threshold while in pinpoint mode, Skip and I started looking on our hands and knees. Just moments into it Skip pulled out a piece of the aid from underneath a few twigs. So then we started moving around some branches and I spotted the other half that contained the inner workings for the aid. Happy, cold and elated to have helped this man, I thought I am so glad this was my first ring finders happy ending. Thank you for calling me Skip it means more than anything to have had the chance to help you.
