While trying to hang some pictures and shelves in my apartment I have used a stud finder to locate studs, but I have run into a problem. When I find a place to drill and insert a anchor because no stud was indicated, I find that just as soon as I get through the dry wall (1/2 in) I run into METAL of some sort. My question is: Can I purchase something like a stud finder to enable me to know before I drill a hole if the drilling will be successful? I have had to spackle and touch up several holes because of this problem. This is my first apartment so I'm used to a regular home and never found this problem. Thanks.
