Quick help needed.

Post by Me and my boy » Wed May 16, 2018 6:37 pm

I’m off out in half an hours to try and find a ladies platinum wedding ring lost on a gravel driveway( possibly)
It will register on deus lite without too much discriminatation?
Hoping I can find it for her.
Any pointers welcome please.
I assume it will sound good like any ring!? Ie high pitched.

Sorry but platinum gives a rubbish response on most detectors. :D

As you're probably actively searching for it by now not much to offer in the way of advice but as the ring is hopefully lying on the surface, use of minimum discrimination should prove to be the way to go. Best of luck to you and the lady waiting ::g Regards ss47

I would go all metal with no discrimiation in the first instance and see what turns up.

Does the lady know roughly where the ring may have been lost and how long ago?

As mentioned, a surface find is highly likely if it is very recent.

I guess that as it is a gravel driveway then you may need to expand your search to the complete area as cars and foot travel may have moved things around.

Gravel is most likely to have been placed on a hard surface - so it may be on asphalt or a manmade covering so the gravel may only be a few inches deep.

Good luck - and very kind of you to help out and we look forward to hearing how you get on.

Just got back and it’s two rings!!! Not one.
Engagement and wedding both platimum. On a leather lace. Lost yesterday.
The gravel is spilt 8mm and fairly compacted so I thought I would have heard two together.
I’m going to try her house on the weekend as this was at her gardening customers house.
I even emptied two garden waste bins just incase.
She pulled her jumper off and thought that’s when she would have lost them.
She’s tried where she went after and no joy.
I hope I can find them for her this weekend.
Not worried on settings now I know there’s two as that’s bound to sound good.
Thanks for the advice so far.

If you can get a HF coil and get up to 72khz you’ll have a better chance of finding it ::g

Please keep us posted on how you get on.

Just got a message from the lady, she found then tangled in her running top label at her house.
Well chuffed for her.
And again thanks Fred for the offer.
By the way she has a 2 acre paddock in a local village to us with a footpath and supposed lost underground passage to the church.
She offered me to try it in the past but I’ve never done it or has anyone else that she knows.
You are welcome to come and try it with me if you like

An excellent outcome howsoever achieved ::g That's also a very generous offer you've made ::g
Good Luck if you make the joint search of the 2 acre paddock - don't fall into the underground tunnel to the church - visions of scoundrels and customs men come to mind (or dodgy clergy) :-O
All the best - Regards ss47
