Stud and wire detector


Postby kbrownie » Wed Jul 25, 2007 11:42 am

Really easy this one? what is the best wooden and metal stud and wire detector to use both on solid and stud walls?
Mainly to detect pipes and live cables.

I GOT A STANLEY MAKE WHICH WAS ADEQUATE FROM
ONE OF THE BIG DIY STORES.
THE BEST ADVICE WOULD B 2 GO 2 YOUR LOCAL ELECTRICAL WHOLE SALER AND START THERE. ( OK MIGHT B PRICY )
BUT U WILLSEE WAT IS ON MARKET AND GET AN IDEA OF WAT SUITS U.
MY WHOLE SALER NOW AND AGAIN COMES UP WITH THIS KIND OF DEVICE AND THEY COULD LINK U TO INSTRUMENT MANUFACTUERS.

Bosch do a very good one often seen in electrical wholesalers and tool merchants etc.

Also sold by Screwfix (Item 49160) for £69.99

Hi there, I used a stud detector in my mates new exstention and it was useless as the voids had been filled with kingspan insulation.

That's the foiled backed stuff? Sounds like a nightmare.
