Do any of these reliably work?
I just bought a Bosch DMF 10 (not cheap either!) with the hope of
locating studs beneath my plasterboard/tiled bathroom wall.
Bearing in mind that I have some idea where the studs are by measuring,
I cannot get the Bosch to give repeatable positions.
Sometimes I can get a trusted reading but vertically up or down from
this position, it cannot find anything to verify it as a stud.
On occasions it latches up bleeping slowly. This is not mentioned in the
manual so no idea what it means.
Its not the live wire detector as I know where the cables are and it
bleeps frantically when it finds one.
