Do any of you lads have a cable stud detector you would recommend?

Don’t want to spend a lot but I am wary of the cheap stuff being sold on Ebay/Amazon.



TIA.

I had a stanley one. I never got to grips with it especially with 10mm pipes. Well over sensitive

Thanks Lads, don't think I'll not bother with one, they seem a bit hit and miss from what I've read.

If you get a good make one you can't really go wrong.

Bosch, Stanley etc...

There was a video on this recently by Project Farm. He compares a few different ones and shows how accurate they are and how you use them.
His channel is filled with info and comparisons on different tools and things you use around the house, all nicely explained and tested.

Well worth a watch if you're looking to buy one!
