    I have the Zircon i700 scanner. I really like it but I don't have any experience with other scanners, just $10 stud finders.

    As long as they light up when I point them at myself I would consider them to be a good unit....

    Somethings on the web you know before hand what you're clicking on but yet, inevitably you still do. :confused:

    Mid Range Stud finder?

    Why the mediocre limits?
    I think Cookie needs a Mr Right Stud Finder.

    You realize, I hope, that they only light up when they sense a DENSE object. Zircon has always worked for me.

    Actually HJ when you calibrate the stud finder while pointing at nothing then point it at yourself you can be a stud... :cool:

    That, is used for removing studs.

    Studs are like threaded bolts without the ends.
    You use something like that when working on engines.

    I have one of those in my automotive tool box.
    When I first got my business license, it was for working on cars.
    Love's Foreign Car Repair.

    I like plumbing better.

    I think that is funny, just like this new avatar. I have a stud, no need for two. :)
    He is dreamy, and funny, kind and smart, and one yr. older than me.
