In reply to How do you find a stud? by Terry Corcoran on June 16th, 1999 09:59 PM [Go to top of thread]

There is another way, and that is to tap with a light hammer
starting from one side and keep tapping the timber say from
left to right, where you want to fix your swing.
start tapping, it will sound hollow, slowly move along the plank
still tapping it will the sound solid or a different sound ( not hollow)
you have found your first stud.mark it with a pencel, just keep tapping
till the sound changes Vola, another stud.
Please dont hit the timber too hard or you will have marks (just a light tap)
will do, if you like try it on somthing where you know
there are studs and you will see what I mean.
Have fun.
