Does this stud finder find wooden studs as well as metal

Asked by bigcle April 8, 2017

This product does not find wood. It finds the metal head of a nail and/or screw. It is up to the DIY to know if wood or metal stud is beyond the drywall surface. I don't know to what depth it will "find" the metal head. Typical drywall depth is 1/2", sometimes 5/8". This product's magnet should find the nail or screw head to those depths. But, typically, the nail or screw head is just under the surface of the drywall. If the stud is metal, you will probably be able to determine the stud edges as long as the drywall thickness is as given above. If wood stud, you will not be able to determine the edges, only the "approximate center". Also, if wood stud, finding the edges is up to the DIY and his/her "sounding"/thumping for what is a void and what is solid beneath the drywall, Finding wood stud edges requires a more sophisticated product, which means higher cost.

Can this stud finder work on the ceiling and not just the walls?

Why not? A horizontal joist (ceiling) is a vertical stud (wall); but, different size and/or depth. This product has a magnet on the drywall side which plops onto the head of the nail or screw when you finally hover over the metal head. All that you are doing is "finding" the "approximate center" of the stud and/or joist.

How do I know the request to ship to a store has been received?

If you already know where the nails or screws are... or if you just want a level with a weird magnet... it’s easier to find the stud by banging on the wall. This was only helpful for entertaining easily amused children (but not for very long).

It's fair, but not accurate because its plastic part is somehow jammed and doesn't work properly.
