Yes, after all of this Tangathoning, it’s time to do some things around the house for a change! Install that heavy mirror on your wall, measure things – just do something… Today’s items will help you measure to your hearts content and also help you find studs, like, uh, TangaJoe for instance.
The Zircon TriScanner OneStep
Can find the center of studs in one pass! Revolutionary CenterVisionâ¢ technology pinpoints the stud center, not just the edge. TriScanner® OneStepâ¢ is a four-function scanner with the patented SpotLite® Pointing System and rubberized grip. TriScanner® OneStepâ¢ finds the center and edges of studs and joists, finds copper (and other non-ferrous metal) pipes up to 1-1/2 inches (38 mm) deep, and finds rebar (ferrous metal) in concrete up to 3 inches (76 mm) deep, while continuously detecting hot unshielded AC wires.
Stud Scan Mode
TriScanner® OneStepâ¢ finds the edges of studs and joists up to 3/4 inches (19 mm) deep in normal mode.
Stud DeepScan® Mode
In Zircon’s patented DeepScan® mode, TriScanner OneStepâ¢ can find studs up to 1-1/2 inches (38 mm) deep behind drywall, paneling, or plywood.
Metal Scan Mode
Finds copper and other non-ferrous metal up to 1-1/2 inches (38 mm) deep.
Finds ferrous metal such as rebar in concrete up to 3 inches (76 mm) deep.
Continuously detects hot unshielded AC wiringâan important safety feature.
