Hi White’s,

My Name is Jason and my brother Josh found a huge synthetic ruby and I wanted to write to you and tell you the DFX is a superb piece of equipment!

I have nothing but praise about this machine. I would love to try the V3 wow! Anyways, I was searching this football field with my brother, who is usually the one to find everything, not today. I was swinging the machine slowly and out of nowhere wham a solid +82, 84 on the display. I pinpointed the target at 6.5 to 7 inches, I began to dig down carefully revealing a large mans class ring, with no center piece.

It must have had a big piece of silver on it, so I poked around and actually found the center piece. The ring says Black Foxe School, which turns out to be a military school in Los Angeles that now does not exist. I estimate the time of loss to be around 1962 when the school went through the name change.

Thank you Mr. White for making a wonderful piece of equipment!

Jason from Vista, CA
