Best Rated Stud Finder - Franklin Sensors FST1302
94% buyer satisfaction from over 750+ customer reviews
This is a bit more expensive compared to some of the other models but it is the best rated and it the best performing
If you are going to be using a tool like this regularly the it's well worth spending this sort of money
There are 13 Sensors for the highest accuracy that you will get
The max detection depth is 1.7"
Definitely worth the money for the professional user
Best Value Stud Finder - Bosch detector Truvo
86% buyer satisfaction from over 7,000+ customer reviews
The cable detector locates live wires up to depths of 50 mm and warns users with a blinking red light and beeping signal
The Truvo can also act as a metal detector, locating magnetic and non-magnetic metals at depths of up to 70 mm and 60 mm respectively
You will need the Bosch UniversalDetect if you want to go up to 100mm but it's nearly 3 times the price. Could be worth it though !
The wall scanner automatically calibrates once the device is placed against the wall and will recalibrate when placed in a new position
The LED light turns red for a detected object, yellow for a nearby object, and green when no object has been detected
A beeping signal indicates when the cable finder is getting closer to a detected object
Best Budget Stud Finder - Stud Finder Wall Scanner
82% buyer satisfaction from over 10,000+ customer reviews
Comes with five different modes suitable for metal tubes, studs, wooden frames, steel bars and brackets .
The bolt mode can detect wooden beams and joists in the dry wall up to 1.5 inches.
Metal mode can detect up to 3 inches of pipe
Depth mode detects up to 3 inches of wood and metal components while 85 to 240 volts of AC current can be used for up to 2 inches of voltage and live wire
The design of this wall stud detector enables it to be fixed from any angle and theLCD screen displays the required stud material and the exact position of the stud
Moisture Meter and Wall Stud Finder
90% buyer satisfaction from over 500+ customer reviews
This unit will measure moisture content as well as finding studs and I guess thats why it's a bit more expensive
It's lightweight, very easy to operate and works really well
I'd say that the moisture meter is very handy but only if you need it. So not really worth the extra unless this is something that you are going to use on a regular basis.
If I was pushed, I would say it is a moisture meter first and a stud detector second really
Stud Finder Wall Scanner
88% buyer satisfaction from over 1,000+ customer reviews
This is a mid range unit that will accurately and quickly find edges and center of metal, studs, joists etc etc
There is 5 in 1 Multi-function Detection: including 1/2 inch scan mode for the center and edges of wood up to 1/2 inch deep; medium scan does up to 1 inch deep and the deep scan up to 1.5inch
The metal scan (Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metal) does up to 2.36 inch deep;
This stud finder comes with large LCD display and light which is very easy to read and use
Definitely a good option at a reasonable price
A very quick video review
We have looked over all the video reviews and found this great short presentation on these tools. It gives you an instant idea of what to expect as well as telling you all the features and spec in and easy to understand format.
I hope you enjoy watching it as I always think its much better to see a tool in action rather than just reading about it or seeing pictures. This guy is particularly good at explaining the features and he is well known for demonstrating tools.
