    Question Stair Rail Install

    I am installing a stair rail into plaster/lath wall in my 100 yr old house. To locate the studs I have used a stud finder and inspected the base boards for nails. I am still not confident of the stud locations. What is the best method for finding studs?

    If your stud sensor is also a metal detector (many are) then you should be able to confirm your stud locations by locating the vertical rows of nails holding the lath to the studs.
