    Does anyone have trouble finding studs in a plaster wall? I have not had much luck in locating studs in my garage wall that is plaster. I have tried using a stud finder (ZIRCON) not having any luck, tried 16in. on center after finding one only through drilling small holes about every inch. I dont want holes all around the garage,does anyone have suggestions for locating studs in plaster? THANKS FOR YOUR HELP. :confused:

    If they aren't on 16" centers, the studs may be on 24" centers. Give that a try.
    Good Luck!
