This weekend we found ourselves hanging some pictures and such, including a pretty-darn-heavy piece of Egyptian brass art. As most of you know, the days of knocking on the wall to find a stud are (thankfully) over, and electronic “stud finders” are now available.
What you may not know is that some of them are also incredibly cheap. We found this one for $8.99 in our local Lowes, but there are a number of sources for them online as well. And if you’re into Craftsman tools, Sears offers this one for $14.99. Sure, you can spend $40 for one, but if you don’t have that to spend, at least you’re not back to knocking.
