:personally, i do not trust any of the stud meters to find wiring adequately.
:i can guess as well as it can.
So, then, in my case this is a waste of money and I ought to return it?
Does it matter if the circuit is being used? IOW, if there's a lamp on
it, the lamp has to be on for the meter to register?
:> Yesterday, I went into my local Costco looking for something else, but
:> noticed this selling for $30 and decided to pick it up. I figured I'd do
:> some online research, determine if this thing is worth keeping and act
:> accordingly. Managed to lose the receipt, but I haven't opened the
:> package and figure Costco would let me return it.
:> I have another stud sensor which has worked for me in finding studs, if
:> I'm careful, the time or two I used it. It's a Zircon Studsensor II.
:> Both of these Zircon stud sensors use 9 v batteries. Is this new one
:> worth keeping or should I return it for my $30?
:> On the package it says it'll find:
:> Wood & Metal studs to 3/4 inch deep
:> DeepScan to 1.5 inch deep
:> AC Wiring
:> Metal Pipes
:> I would like to do some wiring in my house and if this thing can tell me
:> if there's AC at a certain place in a wall, I figure it might pay for
:> itself. Does it really do that? I also have some studfinding coming up.
:> Does anyone have experience with this or a similar TriScanner? TIA.
