Hi All,

These two issues have always been a problem for me when it comes to lathe and plater walls:
(1) How do I find studs
(2) How do I anchor things that aren't on studs

(1) So i bought a fancy stud finder with "Deep Stud" mode, but even this has trouble finding studs behind lathe and plaster. What is the best/easiest/recommended way to find studs? And don't mention the knocking-on-the-wall trick, that does not work for me.

(2) In the case I need to place something where there is no stud, what is the best way to anchor objects to lathe and plaster? I have tried the wing flip anchors but they aren't usually deep enough to get behind the lathe and plaster.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
