Customer Questions & Answers

Can it find a stud earring in a grassy field?

I really need to find this earring, but need to know if it will find it before I buy the metal detector.
Asked by: BobbyMcEntyre
Nope it is not good at that . You need a metal detector which is for treasure hunters $200 + to use it for that it has to be less than 4 inches from it but in real life 2 inches.

Can this tool detect the exact location of copper pipe behind durock and tile? I need to know the exact location within 1/4".

Asked by: MickeyD
I believe it could as I just tested. I'm not sure if I have durarock, but I do have tile and something else behind it in my 1960's bathroom. What you'll want to do is scan from the right, mark the point, then scan from the left and mark the point. It gives the "pinpoint" alert when it is at the edge of the metal. So in your case if it is a half inch pipe, I think it will be very close to giving you an accurate reading of where your pipe is between those to marking points. Without question, measure a few times before committing.

Can I use it to detect old metal in some reclaimed timber beams? The beams are almost 7 inches thick . . .

Asked by: Muzz
It says 4 inches but it is more like 2. You need a more expensive brand to do that.

I am trying to locate nails under Aluminum Gutters

Will this work to find nails under aluminum gutters?
Asked by: Buddy
the gutter will fool it as it looks for metal and the gutter is metal so wont work. If the gutter is removed looking for the nail in wood then it should work in theory.

Can you imagine the excitement of finding a product that actually does exactly what you need it to do. I have plaster and lath walls, and for the life of me could not find a stud with ANY of the traditional methods. GOOGLED how-to and this scanner was one of two ways to get around my headache. IT works perfectly! Found my studs 16" apart. NO more accidental drilling cause, the stud finder reads a stud, and the lath throws off the reading. This was worth my investment! YAY! And yes, it is very easy to calibrate and use. Just follow the instructions. Mine came with a 9-volt battery installed . Package states" battery nt incl".

I have other Zircon tools from years back working well. But their quality must have gone down the drain. I called customer support they told me to get a Duracell battery with expiration 4 years from now since it draws a lot of current during calibration. Put it in and it beeps and blue Christmas light (expensive one). I asked them why you did not design it with two batteries. Silence!! On amazon 25% don't work out of box and fail within one month. It looks and works great on the you tube video but not in real life. Since it did not out of the box was not going to give it any star but it tells me you have to at least give it one star! If I bought a Christmas light and for being an expensive would have given it one star but I mean zero star.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zircon metal detector As a technician I tried to get the best out of this device but it did not deliver what the manufacturer promised It can only detect half inch deep metals like screws in the drywalls but don't expect one or inch and half the way it's advertised If the metal object is a large piece, then it will bip constantly from far away before it reaches the desired distance I don't recommend it It looks odd but that's it

However, on exterior walls (e.g., those with windows), all the lights (including the green ready light) flash and the unit beeps continuously. Someone suggested that it might be foil-backed insulation but, in any event, the scanner is useless on these walls. Our house is 50 years old.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great add on to the tool bag Works great to find nails in studs or metal venting behind the wall. Excellent add on to a typically stud finder. Did not work as well in thicker walls as I was hoping, since I was hoping to find studs behind wood siding, but overall a good tool to have in the bag.

I've used one of these before on a job and it saved me $800.00 on a replacement chain on my chain mortiser. I'm not sure how good the depth sencing is for metal though. Most of what I'll be using it for is just below the surface of the wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for plaster walls I tried every other way to find studs in lath and plaster walls with no success. This worked perfectly and was easy to use. I got my tv hung without any problems . I'd recommend this to anyone with an older house.
