How To Find Electrical Wire Behind Drywall?

Everyone had to do repairs in the apartment at least once, to drill the walls. And if you own a brick or panel house, then the wiring is always hidden. In order not to break it during drilling, you will need a device for concealed wiring. Although the chance to get into the wire is small enough, but still it is, this can not be avoided anywhere. This device allows you not only to find wiring in the wall, just to find a wooden or metal stud.

The detector like all-sun TS79 can find not only stud behind drywall, but also electic wire, i.e. More devices you can find in this review. Before starting the search, plug in any electrical appliance. To begin with, you can practice on open wiring. Bring the detector to any wire, for example, from a teapot, a computer cable, without a difference. Feel what place he will determine the wire, some devices define the edge, some center.

From personal experience I can say that not every device will see wiring in a panel house, especially inexpensive models (up to 20$). Tried 3 different detectors, do not see and that’s it. In brick – without problems, under the plaster, too, it will not be difficult to find a wire. A quality detector (for example, “Bosch”), costs about 80$. This is the price for 2017, then it can be different.

How to use the hidden detector? You apply it tightly to the wall in the intended location of the cable, slowly lead it, as soon as the detector approaches the target, the light will turn on or there will be an audio signal, or both, depending on the model.

If you want to drill without a device, well, it’s not available. Such advice: as a rule, the wiring passes from the outlet strictly upwards, then to the junction box. Therefore, drilling over the outlet is the most dangerous. Well, if you still hit the cable, you’ll have to take a puncher, break a hole in the wall, find an interrupted wire, and connect it with a terminal strip, not look, and then zashpatlevat.


Many people love to garden but whether due to an injury or just the passage of time find it difficult and painful to get down to the ground to enjoy their pastime. If you have ever had back or knee problems, you know exactly what I am talking about. When I came across the Gronomics REGB 24-48 24-Inch by 48-Inch by 30-Inch Rustic Elevated Garden Bed, I saw a possible solution. So read on to see if the REGB 24-48 will allow you to experience the gardening pleasure you seek without the pain that made you give it up in the first place.

The Gronomics REGB 24-48 is a 24 inch by 48 inch raised bed planter that stands 30 inches tall. It allows easy access to tend your plants without the kneeling and bending required to garden in the ground. Getting your garden up off the ground also protects it from many common insect pests and some non-insect pests like rabbits.

Built of rough sawn western cedar, it will add to the decor of your yard and be very utilitarian at the same time. With the REGB, you can have decorative plants or vegetable plants wherever in your yard you would like. You can place your garden wherever the sunlight is best for what you are growing without having to be concerned with the quality or type of soil available. You can even grow plants that would never thrive (or maybe even survive) in the native soil of the area where you live.

The REGB is also perfect for use as a deck or patio planter. Its wood construction will allow it to blend in with the decor on most decks or patios and give you a place to grow those decorative plants you have been looking at. The only thing I would like to warn you about is the fact that since it is wood, water will leak through the bottom so be sure to place it somewhere where that won’t cause any damage.

Features and Benefits

  • Tool-less assembly means you will be able to have your bed ready for planting quickly and without digging out the tool box.
  • The REGB is made by American craftsmen so you know the quality will meet your requirements.
  • It is constructed of rough sawn western cedar for excellent durability and long lasting beauty.


Customer Reviews

The Gronomics REGB 24-48 is very popular among those who reviewed it. 81 % gave it a perfect five star rating and 92% rated it at least four stars. It is praised as easy to assemble and is considered the perfect size by many reviewers.

The complaints centered on the “rustic” finish that some thought was a bit rough and splintery. If that isn’t what you want, you would be better off with a finished version.


The most praise was for the ease of assembly. Many said they had it together in five minutes and I didn’t find anyone claiming to take longer than ten minutes. The parts come pre-cut and slide together easily. It was mentioned that it is hard to move assembled so it is a good idea to assemble it at the site where you want it located.

They also said that the REGB 24-48 was a near perfect size. By practicing square foot gardening methods, you can grow an amazing amount of a wide variety of vegetables in this eight square foot (nominal) bed. Square foot gardening was pioneered by Mel Bartholomew and is an excellent way to get the maximum benefits possible from your elevated bed.

Many people with physical issues wrote glowing praise. They were able to assemble it themselves and the height of its elevation made gardening a pleasure again. They were able to continue enjoying their hobby when, without it, they would have had to endure pain if they could garden at all.


The most often mentioned complaint was that the rough cut of the pieces were not what they expected. The pieces are truly rough sawn lumber which is what gives the bed its rustic look. However, with rough sawn lumber, it is possible or even likely to get splinters if you are not careful handling it. Enough people mentioned the ease of construction without mentioning splintering to make me think a lot of the splintering complaints were from people who didn’t know what to expect when ordering rough sawn material. If this is something you would rather not deal with, Gronomics offers the same bed in a finished version that will be nice and smooth.

Another complaint that came up several times is the receipt of broken parts, missing parts, or the wrong instructions. This gives me the message that Gronomics really needs to look at their quality control policies and possibly their packaging. This information would usually be a deal breaker for me but then I read about how Gronomics took care of their customers. Broken or missing pieces had replacements shipped without question or hassle. The company did everything they could to make the customer whole. When a company runs into quality issues, how they react to it tells me everything I need to know. If they take responsibility and make their customers whole, I don’t hold it against them. All companies run into quality problems sooner or later. I am happy as long as they don’t start making excuses and trying to pass the buck.


If your mobility is limited in such a way that playing in the dirt in your garden is either no longer possible or too painful to be worth it, I think an elevated bed is just what the doctor ordered. After reading all the reviews I could find, I feel it is safe to say that when it comes to elevated beds, the Gronomics REGB 24-48 24-Inch by 48-Inch by 30-Inch Rustic Elevated Garden Bed is definitely a top choice. With the promises of solid western cedar construction, made in America, and 81% five star reviews, this is an elevated garden bed that will meet your needs now and for a long time to come.


When it comes to pruning trees, you have limited choices. You can use a manual saw if you have the strength and endurance for the job. You can use a electric model with an extension cord but the weight of the saw head on the end of the pole will quickly wear you out. A gas powered pole saw is another possibility if you don’t mind the hassle of dealing with mixing gas and oil, yanking a pull cord starter and all the other maintenance issues. That leaves battery powered electric saws but do they have the power needed for the job? Let’s look at what I discovered about the GreenWorks 20672 G-MAX 40V Li-Ion 8-Inch Cordless Pole Saw and find out.

The GreenWorks 20672 is an eight inch battery powered chainsaw on the end of an adjustable aluminum pole. The pole is a three piece design that allows up to eight feet of extension. The adjustability is due to the ability to use the middle piece of the pole or not. This design isn’t as easy as a telescoping system would be but is much more rigid.

The battery pack actually serves two useful purposes. As you would expect, it provides the energy to run the saw but its position behind your hand makes it serve the second purpose. The weight of the battery acts as a counter balance to the weight of the saw head, making the saw much easier to use and less straining.

The saw head itself includes an automatic oiler to keep the bar and chain properly lubed. A properly lubed chain will stay sharp longer and bind less,making the work faster with less routine maintenance.

The G-MAX battery system is a great idea that is well executed. The battery included with this saw will work in any other GreenWorks G-MAX tool. The interchangeability of batteries means that as you build a collection of G-MAX tools, you will also build a collection of back-up batteries, ensuring you always have power ready no matter what the task at hand requires. And when you have plenty of batteries, you can save a few bucks by buying other tools you need without batteries, knowing that the ones you have will work without issue.

Features and Benefits

  • The pole saw comes with a 2 Ah lithium ion battery and charger so you always have enough power to finish the job.
  • The battery is a G-MAX 40V battery that is compatible with many other GreenWorks tools.
  • The saw is also compatible with the G-MAX 40V 4 Ah battery for extended usage.
  • The pole is made of three separate pieces of aluminum to allow you to adjust to the length needed for a specific job, up to eight feet long.
  • The chain tensioning is easily adjustable to make keeping the chain tight in the field as easy as possible.
  • The saw has an automatic oiler so the bar and chain always stay properly lubed for clean quick cuts and longer chain life.

Customer Reviews

The GreenWorks pole saw has some outstanding reviews. 72 % of the reviewers rated it perfect with five stars and 93% gave it at least four. This vote of support answers questions about the quality built into this tool. There was a lot of praise for the battery life and the overall usability of the saw.


Many praised the sturdiness of the pole. When trying to cut with a saw at the far end of an eight foot pole, the last thing you need is to have to deal with flexing or sagging. The sections screw together to increase rigidity and eliminate the danger of separation.

The battery life received mention as particularly praiseworthy. Cutting with any pole saw is physically demanding and the consensus was that you will be ready for a break by the time the battery gets low. The lithium ion technology used means that there is little if any drop off in effectiveness as the battery discharges. My own Li-Io tools seem to run at peak right up until they just quit as the battery dies. Lithium ion batteries are also are quick to recharge. The reviewers agree that a complete recharge takes about an hour.

In my opinion (shared by several reviewers), the best thing about the GreenWorks 20672 is the fact that you get the powerful performance expected from gas powered tools without the hassle, mess, or noise of a gas motor. There is no mixing gas and oil, no storing volatile flammable chemicals, no fighting with primer bulbs and pull cords before you are even able to start the job.


Most complaints were about the amount of oil used by the lubing system. It was considered excessive by some reviewers and others complained about how fast the reservoir was emptied. Fortunately the oil reservoir is clear so you can see at a glance how much oil is left and it is easy to refill.

Another complaint was that the chain tensioning system was less secure than that found on regular chainsaws. The chain seems pretty quick in working itself loose. On the bright side, it was extremely easy to adjust the tension in the field without special tools. When the chain loosens, a quick adjustment is all you need to be back in business.


From the beginning, the big question is “Can a battery powered tool be powerful enough to tackle the jobs a pole saw is called upon to take on?”. From everything I saw and read, the GreenWorks 20672 G-MAX 40V Li-Ion 8-Inch Cordless Pole Saw easily meets this test. It easily cuts everything from wispy willow branches to those low branches on your oak tree that reach out over your driveway threatening to scratch your car. Between this and the fact that the batteries promise interchangeability with an array of tools, I find it hard to do anything but recommend it to serve all your pole saw needs.


One tool that is indispensable when you do any kind of gardening or yard work is something to haul things in. Carrying everything by hand is a slow and tedious way to get any job done. You will find yourself making several trips back and forth from your work site and your shed or storage area to equip yourself for the simplest jobs. That adds time and stress to the completion of any task. While the wheelbarrow has long been the go to for such tasks, I find them unwieldy. Keeping a load balanced on that single wheel just seemed like too much work to me so I started looking for an alternative. I found the Gorilla Carts GOR866D Heavy-Duty Garden Poly Dump Cart with 2-In-1 Convertible Handle, 1,200-Pound Capacity, 40-Inch by 25-Inch Bed, and Black Finish. This cart has exceeded every expectation I had for it.

The GOR866D is built to give a lifetime of service even in abusive environments. The frame is welded steel for strength and the bed is heavy duty poly so that it is weatherproof and strong enough to haul the big loads. The bed is 10 ¾ inches deep with pockets molded in to allow you to add higher walls to it to contain taller loads. It is 25 inches wide and 40 inches long with a taper at the back to help when dumping loads. When dumping, the bed tilts almost all the way vertical so everything slides out easily.


Features and Benefits

  • The Gorilla Carts GOR866D comes with a 40 inch by 25 inch bed that is 10 ¾ inches deep so your biggest loads will easily fit.
  • The cart is rated to carry 1200 pounds so no matter how heavy your equipment or material is, you will have to make fewer trips.
  • The dump mechanism on the cart makes it easy to unload as the bed tilts to near vertical allowing everything to slide out with little effort.
  • The welded steel frame is built to last and coated to resist rust so you will get years of service out of it.
  • The handle is padded for comfort pulling the heavy loads you will be moving.
  • The handle easily converts to allow the cart to be pulled with your riding mower or lawn tractor.
  • The 13 inch balloon tires make pulling your load a snap even over rough, uneven ground or up inclines.
  • The bed is molded of heavy duty poly so it will not be effected by the weather.
  • The bed has pockets molded in along the front and down both sides to allow the installation of a wooden fence to support tall loads without having to worry about anything falling out.


Customer Reviews

The Gorilla Carts GOR866D has made many reviewers happy. It is rated a perfect five stars by 70% of them and at least four stars by 91%. It is praised as a high quality product that meets or exceeds its promised usefulness. It fills the roles of a wheelbarrow, a wagon, and a pull cart for your lawn tractor in one package and does the jobs of each as well as or better than the specific items do.



All the reviewers agree that the GOR866D is built for a lifetime of service. The construction uses quality components and it is weatherproofed so it will not see a landfill any time soon.

The cart has plenty of room in it to haul large items without problem and it remains easy to pull even with a full load. The dumping mechanism doesn’t bind and is easy to activate even with a full load pushing down on it although it is only rated for use with loads weighing 500 pounds or less.

The large tires make it easy to roll over almost any surface, even rough rocky ground. And if you happen to load enough in it that you can’t pull it by hand, the handle easily swivels out of the way to allow you to attach it to your lawn tractor. The tongue is even long enough to use it with a zero turn mower.



The biggest complaint in the reviews is a petroleum smell that it emits when first opened and assembled. You definitely want to open and assemble it outside or in a very well ventilated area. After assembly, a few days outside allow most of the smell to dissipate and it will be okay to store inside.

There were also complaints about the assembly although my fourteen year old son was able to put mine together with limited supervision. There are a few tricky steps in the process where someone to assist, while maybe not absolutely required, will greatly ease the assembly.

Another comment mentioned several times was that a brake would be a very good addition. The cart rolls easy enough that even a slight downgrade can make it get away from you. When hauling a load by hand, be very attentive any time you encounter a incline no matter how steep. If you let go on the way up, it will roll back to the bottom and if you let it get away from you on the way down, it will try to run you over.

A last complaint (somewhat tongue in cheek) is that the bed is large enough that it easy to load enough material that you can’t pull it by hand. That is where the convertible handle really saves the day. Swivel it out of the way, get your riding mower, hook it up and you are quickly on your way.


Built solidly and designed for ease of use, the Gorilla Carts GOR866D Heavy-Duty Garden Poly Dump Cart with 2-In-1 Convertible Handle, 1,200-Pound Capacity, 40-Inch by 25-Inch Bed, and Black Finish is easily one of my favorite purchases. There are few jobs that I do outside that it doesn’t make easier in some way. I think everyone that has ever had to move something from here to there would be well served with this cart.
