I am aware that people in this forum have been highly positive about
metal/voltage detectors made by Zircon. As I needed such a detector to
add to my toolkit I had a look, but was a little put off by the price.
I have instead bought the combined detector referenced in the article
below, and having received it I must say that I'm rather pleased with
This little beaut does stud, metal and voltage detection, plus gives
reasonably accurate distance measurement as well. So its the
equivalent of a tape measure combined with metal/voltage detector.
Have used this a couple of times already and it seems to do what it
says on the box. Passing this reference on to others who may be
interested in such a device.
