Dear White's Electronics,

A friend of mine, who was getting ready to move out of his house, told me he had lost his wedding ring in his attic insulation about a year ago. I offered to look for it with my XLT but he was so busy getting ready to move that he said, “Ah, just forget it.” But I said, “No! It’s your wedding ring. I’m coming over there!”

So I went over to his house and said, “Get a ladder—we’re going up.” We went up into the attic space and he said, “I think it’s over there,” and he pointed to an area where the insulation was about a foot deep. I got some signals right away, but they were just nails and other stuff like that. But then I got a very clear signal and I just knew it had to be his ring. So I moved some of the insulation away and sure enough, there it was—a great big gold wedding ring! And to think he was just going to leave it there! I was sure happy that my XLT and I could help him out.

-Carl, Oregon
