Why does my stud finder keep "finding" nails?

Stud Finders And Nails

Some stud finders require calibration in order to work properly. Some do "instant calibration" and some require you to find a stud-free spot on a wall to perform that stud finder calibration. If you are buying a stud finder from a third party on eBay or from a garage sale, be sure to ask what kind of calibration is needed to make the finder work properly.
