Metal Detector in use

Metal Detector Tips

Lost a ring? Engagement, Wedding, Class or Sentimental ring? Thinking about trying to use a metal detector to find it? I lost my gold wedding ring and rented a metal detector to help me find it (for the full story click here).
A couple of months later, after hearing the story of my success finding the ring, my uncle asked me to come over and look for his wedding ring. It had been lost 10 or so years ago during the construction of a small retaining wall under a deck at his home.
After my initial 4 day ordeal looking for my own wedding ring I was a little apprehensive about the prospect of finding his wedding band, but at least it wasnít under water like mine had been, plus he had a pretty good idea of where it should be. So, he rented a metal detector, coincidentally the same one I had used to find mine, and on a nice Sunday morning I went over to start digging. We broke out the shovels, a wheel barrow, a bucket and coffee.
He showed me the area, about 20 square feet, and we considered that it could be at a depth of up to a foot or two near the front. I took off my own ring and placed it on the ground to get a feel for what a good strong hit should sound like on the metal detector's speaker and then I started working the area.
In less than 5 minutes I got a good strong hit and sure enough, there was his ring! We spent more time pulling out the tools than we actually spent looking for the ring. After 10 years in the dirt his ring was back on his finger and I was now 2 for 2 finding lost wedding rings.
