A: We used it for wall studs and it works as it should.
A: Yes, Greg. It will detect any variation in density behind just about any normal surface. It just doesn't slide well on a rough surface. But slide it as close to contacting the floor and as steady as you can and it will work.
A: I can t say for sure, but it reads density behind walls so it should do same for floor. Only thing is, walls are sheetrock and floors are thicker, try it . If it doesn't t help you , return it.
A: Hello Greg. The HD35 has a 3/4" maximum scanning depth so it would not be able to scan deep enough for floor joist. We recommend a stud sensor with deep scan like the HD55 or above but please be aware StudSensor™ stud finders can locate joists in your floor, in DeepScan® mode, (scan depth up to 1 1/2") as long as your flooring does not have several layers of material with different levels of density, or materials that are denser than the wood joist that you're trying to find. Materials that interfere with a stud finder's ability to find floor joists include carpet and padding and various types of hardwood flooring. In addition, scanning through floor ceramic tile can produce the same irregular results. It is in these situations that we suggest getting a unit with a metal scanning mode to possibly locate the nail heads to identify the floor joists such as the HD800. Thank you
A: Mine did NOT work with an old but still "good" testing battery; it just stayed green and on without indicating anything under the surface. Then, reloaded with a new battery with a long future expiration year, it found all the studs and projected red arrows on the wall. Bottom line: Get a new, alkaline battery!
A: It did work
A: It wont callobrate and doesnt show where studs are consequently.
A: They are useless, constantly beeps, doesn't find studs, don't waste your money
A: I have no idea and neither did home depot. When I first bought it, it worked fine. A month later with new battery still didn't work. The brand new trade in stud finder didn't work either with a new battery. Does it need reprogramming?
A: it does work!!!!!
A: Be sure you give a couple of seconds to calibrate (read the instructions on the bottom of the device), and then be sure you don't hit any rough spots while you're panning a surface. It's a little sensitive to irregularities, can easily be thrown out of calibration.
A: It works, but I found inconsistent results, so had to repeat the process to get a good response.
A: Hi. We’re sorry to hear of your experience with our product. The HD35 is a basic scanner that is only designed to operate on ½” or 5/8” interior drywall construction. All things being equal, it should work great on interior walls as described. Issues with the tool could very well be caused by a low battery. Please replace the battery with a brand new 9V alkaline battery with an extended expiration date of a few years out. Stud finders require adequate voltage to power the sensing mechanism inside the tool. If this does not work, please contact us. We offer toll free support by phone at (800) 245 9265 during normal business hours Mon. thru Fri. 8:00am to 5:00pm PST, as well as email. We also maintain a 24/7 interactive online knowledge base on our web site. Thanks
A: Might have a bad one, mine finds studs every time! Try a fresh battery,,,,
