Multi Function Stud Finder – Finds Electrical Wires and Plumbing Too

The multi function stud finder does more than just find studs. They are usually a very nice center stud finder that also detect electrical wires and plumbing.

Our favorite Multi Function Stud Finder – Zircon’s MultiScanner® i520 OneStep®



MultiScanner® i520 OneStep® quickly and easily locates the edges and center of wood and metal studs and joists behind walls, floors, and ceilings.

The signal strength indicator helps to distinguish between shallow and deep targets.
