Stanley Measuring Tools & Sensors - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


I answer questions for free.
I used a framing square for every day for years and frankly I never knew all the lines either.
At fixya they say 'real' experts don't provide a link but instead explain every detail to answer the question.

However in this case, the best detail is the following:
Do a google search for 'how to use a framing square.'

http://www.carpentry-pro-framer.com/framing-square.html

After reading about the framing square, if you have a specific question how to use it, then add a comment and I will help fill out the details. For example if the terminology is confusing.

Here's my favorite framing square tip:
Put the square on the edge of a piece of plywood.
Hold the pencil at a mark.
Then slide the square along the plywood while holding the pencil, and it makes a long straight line. It takes some practice.

Here's another tip:
Sometimes when you cut a piece of wood, the power saw blade tears up the wood.
This is true with your hardwood cuts.
So let's say I am going to cut a 1x6 oak across the grain.
Oak is brittle and it chips with a crosscut, especially with a dull blade.
Use the square to draw a line across where you want your cut.
Bring the square back just a little from the mark ... maybe 1/32 inch ... then score the wood with a sharp utility knife.
Let the blade run along the square for a nice straight line.
Now when you cut your board, and the oak chips out, the little chips stop at the score line.

Most stud finders have a sensitivity adjustment that should be carefully adjusted per instruction manual before use.
Failure to do this results in erroneous indications.

If you have adjusted exactly per the instructions with the same result the unit is probably faulty.

Hi Laurie,

I think you might have confused the calibration set up in the first step of the directions. This must be done each time the unit is powered on, placed on a different wall, or whenever it is providing ambiguous indications. For you convenience, I have pasted the operation manual below. You should download and review the entire manual - free of charge here.

1) Hold the Stud Sensor 50 flat against the surface making firm contact.

2) Press in and hold the activation button. The green
and red LED's will light. When the red LED goes off,
the unit is calibrated
. Keep holding the activation button
during all of the following procedures.
Note: While calibrating, the Stud Sensor 50 must not
be placed directly over a stud, dense material such as
metal, or over a wet or newly painted area, or it will not
properly calibrate. If the Red LED stays lit, move to
a different location and try again.


2) Slide the Stud Sensor 50 slowly across the surface
in a straight line. As it detects a stud edge, the red LED
will go on.
Use the handy pencil notch located at the top of the
unit to mark the stud edge.

3) Repeat the above steps from the other side of
the stud. Coming from the opposite direction, mark
the other edge of the stud. The midpoint of the two
marks indicates the stud center.

Cautions on Operating
The proximity of electrical wiring or pipes to the surface
of the wall may cause the Stud Sensor 50 to detect
them as studs. You should always use caution when
nailing, cutting or drilling in walls, ceilings and floors
that may contain these items. Always remember that
studs or joists are normally spaced 16 inches or 24
inches apart and are 1-1/2 inches in width. To avoid
surprises be aware that anything closer together or of a different width may not be a stud.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Yes. Unless one was provided the standard is to just use an extension cord.
