Anyone have a particular model stud finder that works well for them? I bought a $25 Stanley model last night and it is very hit-or-miss. And it has the 110 VAC detector and as soon as that thing starts ringing, it won't stop no matter where I move the sensor. Unfortunately the AC detector seems to detect any AC wiring within 100 feet.
I have one wall where I marked where the studs are (I'm 100% sure cuz I just redid the drywall) and I tried holding the sensor tight against the wall, loose against the wall, moving slowly across the wall, moving quickly, holding it at a slight angle, etc. Still hit-or-miss. Frustrating!!!
I have an older Stanley model that was a little better, but still very hit or miss. Reading reviews of other models and it seems like they all get mixed reviews.
