    Anyone in ames have a metal detector?

    As I posted earlier I am putting up a fence and I am having trouble locating the survey pins that mark our lot. Is there anybody out there in the Ames area that has access to a metal detector that would be willing to help me out? I will even pay(if you so desire).

    Re: Anyone in ames have a metal detector?

    I'm heading out in a couple minutes to locate a few pins in about a 8 acre plot. But alas, I'm over in eastern Iowa.

    Is there a place in Ames where you can rent equipment? I know home depot does some of that, but I am not sure about Lowes or Theisens. Even if they did I don't know if a metal detector would be available. Something to look into I guess.

    Just watching the show Diggers (no idea why). I assume that when OP found the survey pins, he ran around screaming like an idiot.
