[quote="kbrownie"]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.
Thanks for your reply Blakey1963, i'll do that, we have a coulple of good wholesalers in the area. i'm currently taking my city and guildes and want a good praticle tool box. I know they maybe a bit more costly as you mentioned but i don't want cheap tac.
Thank you very much for your Time

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