I was doing a bit of finish work today and thought I might put a little tip out there that some people may not know. A while back I was doing some work and after locating the "stud" with an electronic stud finder, I commenced to shoot a nail right through the drain pipe lol. Since then I started using a magnet. I snapped a quick picture of one I made today. It's a just a decent sized magnet taped to a flexible piece of flooring. Basically just swing it along the wall until the magnet sticks to one of the drywall screw heads. There's your stud!

Ha! Stud finder, classic
