  • Stud finder

    I mean wall studs. The tounge and grove on my ceiling is coming loose in some places. Jack leg construction Inc. missed the studs in more than one spot. Can anyone recommend a decent stud finder at a resonable cost? Thanks.

    Want to use mine? It's awesome. Even tells you where live circuits are. I use it to hang mini splits and other refrigeration crap on walls. It works very well.

      Thanks Chris. I will borrow it when I get the scaffolding set up. Will only need it for one day.

          Can you tell us which one you have?

            Take very fine steel wool, break it up a bit, and rub it where you believe the studs are. The screws are magnetized enough to attract the fine wool hairs. It works better than you'd think.

              Some areas still use nails which don't show up.

              Ha ha .... yep! Nails are typically used for wood T&G. The steel wool would only be useful for polishing in this case...
