I'm making a DIY wall mounted pull-up bar (I'm too tall for the normal kind, and can't fit a commercial wall bar due to a sloped ceiling) and I just mounted the heavy duty brackets I'm using, but I've run into a problem: My AC wire sensor and AC sensor pen go off when I check the left bracket which is mounted to the king stud of my door--along which the wires for my ceiling lights are mounted. And when screwing into the wall the lights did flicker just a small amount once with one screw--but light flickering isn't uncommon in my area being on the end of the line and my house is kinda old. However, the bracket is safe to touch as are the screws. And when I took it out of the wall screw by screw the effect did not disappear regardless of the screw being one that went in fine, or the one that might have caused the flickering. Also I did not hit any metal wire protectors in the stud.
I'm wondering if what my sensors are detecting is an induced current in the bracket and screws? I have a Tv mount and several other things mounted on different studs with wires running relatively near them that are definitely fine but still set off my detectors. Plus, my house is old with thick solid core wires (Could wires moving while drilling cause flickering?).
No breaker's have tripped, everything else on the circuit is fine. Nothing accept the one flicker. I'm just not sure what to do. Should I be worried or just call it a day? Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.
