A Stud Finder That Works
Franklin Sensors' ProSensor T6 is the most recent (and least expensive) addition to the company’s line of durable multisensor stud finders.
As anyone who’s used one will attest, most stud finders can be tough to interpret, even when they work correctly. The exceptions to this rule are the stud finders from Franklin Sensors. The latest version, the ProSensor T6, joins the company’s more expensive ProSensor 710 and 710+. The T6 has a smaller display than the 710, and instead of 13 sensors it has six, which are still superior to the one or two sensors on most stud finders. The sensors provide a larger scanning area than most stud finders, which means the display shows both the center and the edges of the stud at the same time. It runs on two AAA batteries and claims a maximum scanning depth of 1-1/2 in. In this episode of Tool Tech, host Patrick McCombe demonstrates the T6’s capabilities and talks about its features.
