owner gets ring back

Post by GC-1023 » Fri Mar 17, 2017 9:29 pm

I didnt actually recover this ring ,but played a part.
I put my AT Pro on gumtree coz i was going to get a deus lite .
A guy contacted me asking if it was capable of finding a gold ring in a acre field as he had lost his late fathers ring.
I offered to recover it free of charge but he said he would rather tackle task himself . next day he had driven 40 miles and was on doorstep with a wad of cash and away he went on his mission to check his one acre garden .
Two hours later he was texting me saying the machine was playing up ,very chattery .
I scratched my head and said ,"you have a electric fence on by any chance ".
sure enough he did and once that was switched off he was able to get on with task . Two days later 7am he found it right up against fence. A very happy guy who intends to now join us all in this hobby .
He has some good connections so i expect he will be sending me pics of hammies before long .

Lovely story! Glad he got his ring back and found a new hobby to boot. Makes you wonder if it was an excuse to go and buy a detector he'd always wanted anyway ;) - good man ::g
