Sep 28 '13 at 21:20 comment added BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft @mike: My logic does hold, because OP and I are talking about exactly the same thing. That magnetic studfinder is not an electronic studfinder which uses magnets; it is literally just a really powerful magnet. When I hold it up to the wall, it's attracted to the nails behind the wall so powerfully that it can hold itself in place.
Sep 19 '13 at 2:50 comment added BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft @Kaz: The drywall in my home has two layers; I've measured it to be 1" thick. That magnetic stud finder is attracted to the outlet-box nails behind the drywall strongly enough that it easily holds itself up on its own.
