I'm disappointed, I was hoping to do alot of work with this thing. Now I think I've got a $19 dud. Does anyone know of a more reliable studfinder and AC wire finder?
I use the Zircon with the AC finder. Sometimes you have to move the finder away from the wall to narrow down where the wire is. Test this on a lamp cord, do you notice how the thing goes off when you are with a foot or so of it? Now lift the finder away from the cord and go back and forth, continue until you find that you only pick it up when you are directly over it................sort of hard to explain on-line.
