- Looking for a stud
In a wall that is.
What detector works. I have one that is useless and simply beeps randomly.Posted 9 months ago
What has worked for me without fail is a small drill and some filler.Posted 9 months ago
Tapping with your knuckle, then small drill in area. Check for electrics though.

Depending on age/structure I use a strong magnet in our lathe and plaster walls as it picks up the nails then use a plum line..Posted 9 months ago
It’s fairly recent – 80s so assume plaster board.
How does the small drill technique work?
Trial an error or one hole plus a bendy something to find the stud?
I was hoping not to go down the pin a tail on the donkey route!Posted 9 months ago

Magnets work.Posted 9 months ago
I have a rare earth magnet stuck to a cork. It picks up even buried screws. Available on ebay for pennies…Posted 9 months ago
got a bosch multi thingy that works fine for studs, pipework and leccy.Posted 9 months ago
I used the magnet from a scalextric car to find the screws holding the plaster board in my garage. They’re pretty strong and I could feel them pulling to the screw from a distance.
If you need to find a series of studs, once you’ve got two, that’ll give you an idea of the gap to narrow the search. I also found most sets of screws on each stud were placed at similar intervals.Posted 9 months ago
Leffe is that a 30 quid Bosch or 70 odd or more ? They seem to do various onesPosted 9 months ago
