Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stud Finder ?? Purchased this item to locate studs in my lounge ceiling. When I unpacked the detector and read the instructions which were pretty simple, I tried the device out on some hidden electrical wiring and the response was positive. Having selected the wood detection option on the device, I then tried this on my lounge ceiling. I was moving the detector across the ceiling in both directions but received a constant red signal. I then went to a room that is part of a new build extension and a large wall that is stud partitioned. I have a photograph of this wall with the stud work completed and prior to boarding. I moved the device right across this wall knowing exactly where the studs were and it showed red the whole way across I appreciate this Magnusson detector is far cheaper than a lot of its competitors, but regardless of cost it has to produce reliable results!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would not recommended Waste of money. Beeps at anything and doesn't give an accurate reading at all. Returning at my next opportunity. Does a good job at detecting plaster, but fails to find the studs in the walls and ends up beeping all the time instead. Calibration doesn't make a difference. Only useful for detecting mains wires, even then, I've had mixed results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I hadn't bought it Bought to check walls in new house before putting up shelves, walls are all stud walls so thought it would be straight forward. According to this every wall is full of electrical cables, absolutely useless. Wish I'd read all the reviews before buying not just the few that popped up.

Detect joists under lath and plaster?

I have an old lath and plaster ceiling, need to detect joist positions. Guess this is no good due to wooden laths, even though joists are probably within 20mm of surface? If so, is there anything suitable that you sell?
