stud finder

I have a battery powered stud finder with lights on it. As you move it close to a stud, the green light changes to some red lights, with the top red light coming on when you are right over the stud.

I happened to activate the stud finder against my chest, and the top red one lit right up. I told my wife, this proves that I'm a stud!

You fellas that have stud finders need to try this...

These things lie. I can tell you with some assurance that yours is lying because I am the only stud on this forum.

Does not explain the false positives for neutered.

Hi: Mike Magee... One question... Does it light up the same whether the stud is nailed or screwed?

There must be at least a modicum of truth there.

My widowed neighbor lady tells me that every time she wants to hang a picture of another of her grandchildren on the wall that her stud finder always works better on the walls closest to my house....

I wonder if she is trying to tell me something?????

Well, that is a fasten-ating question! Since being nailed or screwed both accomplish the same thing, it seems logical for the finder to work the same in either case. Which I think it does... and how could there ever be a true stud that's never had any nailing or screwing? That would be an unused piece of wood.

(Euphemisms? What euphemisms? I don't see any euphemisms... )

The retention factors differ though. There is a big difference between getting nailed and screwed.

Would 20 nails do as well as 5 screws, or some such? A quantity vs quality equation.
