I am not sure. My hunch would be no.
Depends on how lucky you are and how the installers laid out the nails/screws, and how big of a pattern you sweep in. Logic needs to be applied. GENERALLY the screws should be 16" apart vertically. and a row on every stud. Best way is to start at the top or bottom of a wall within the first 6 inches or so where the first screw/nail might have been started.
Yes to wood studs, it will find the screws/nails in them
It does not work well on mine
It will find a nail or screw that holds the Sheetrock up they you have to figure out which way the trusses go.
No. Too many layers of siding, sheathing and possibly insulation cause false readings. Vinyl siding nails are rarely spaced to be on a stud.
Nope, too thick for the magnet to work
No it wouldn't. this only has a small level and 2 strong magnets in it.
Yes, the way this tool works is by "detecting" the nails in the studs through a magnet. You'll feel a little resistance while you move it on the wall in an S pattern.
You move this product in an "S" shape pattern to scan the wall; however, when you find one screw you can move the device straight up and down and this should detect all the dry wall screws on the stud. You can put small marks on each one to avoid drilling on top of the dry wall screw.
