CH Hanson 03040 Magnetic Stud Finder

CH Hanson 03040 Magnetic Stud Finder

A few years ago I got an electronic cable, pipe and screw/nail finder as a Chritmas present.

No time to stop right now? Please click here.

Well, after quite a bit of setting the sensitivity and playing around, I have to say that I wasn't impressed. One time I can recall, I wanted to hang a clothes drier from the ceiling in our utility room. I just gave up after about thirty minutes or so, I just couldn't get the thing to give me a positive reading. So it was back to tapping until I got a solid sound. I still ended up with more holes in the ceiling than I wanted but at least the job got done.

I can't recall using my detector since that day. :(

Stud Finder Review

Thinking back to that time, I wish that I'd had one of these.

You see, rather than it relying on electricity, the CH Hanson 03040 Magnetic Stud Finder employs some rather strong rare earth magnets, which are quite a lot more powerful than ordinary magnets.

All that's required is to scan the dry wall or ceiling with the stud finder and when it passes over a screw or nail head, it will be attracted to it. Not only that but it will "stick" to it while you get on with your work. No need for pencil marks. How clever is that?

It's also very small, small enough to carry around in your pocket.

CH Hanson 03040 Magnetic Stud Finder Features

Locates screws or nails using rare earth (neodymium) magnets, so no need to keep buying batteries.

No maintenance required, ever.

Guaranteed to last a lifetime of abuse.

Hands-free operation - once you've found the fastener it just hangs there.

Uses multiple magnets to increase adherence.

      I love the simplicity of this. It's one of those "why didn't I think of that?"
