    "Wall Detector" - my head makes a good one ... especially if I have my eyes closed when walking around!

    Never had much success for the "diy" electrical testers. Despite re calibrating they would constantly try and tell me there was electrical cables where I knew there was none...like in a door.

    The best one I have found is just a stud detector

    Does a great job in picking up the small nails you get with lathe and plaster. It does pick up non-ferrous metals so guess you could use it for copper pipes too.
