Lost & Found

Lost If you have lost a valuable ring or piece of jewelry our SVDB club members may be able to help you find it with our metal detectors.   We have found and returned many valuable rings plus other treasured items that were lost by people that requested help.  Click on the Lost & Found Picture or this email link with information about your lost jewelry.  Email Link for Lost Jewelry

Metal Detector Help

QuestionSo you have a metal detector and can’t quite figure out how to operate it.   We have SVDB members who know how to operate most of the major name brand metal detectors.  Click on the picture or on the following link to send us an email that includes your brand and model detector along with your contact information. A SVDB member will contact you to set up a free training session. Email Link for Metal Detector Training
NOTE:  We are currently looking for a volunteer to coordinate this area.  The best thing to do right now is to come to the meeting and we'll try to match you with someone that is qualified for your detector.  I will still respond to your email requests and try to get you help.  Webmaster
