Product Details

Bosch Tools Digital Multi-Scanner, Model GMS120

The Bosch GMS120 Digital Multi-Scanner takes the guesswork out of working on concealed walls and finished floors by locating wooden studs, electrical conduit and more in a variety of materials. Its deep metal detecting abilities can find steel rebar in cured concrete up to 4 ¾ inches deep.

Detection information, including depth and type of concealed object, is displayed on the illuminated LCD panel with easy-to-read graphics.

The lights surround a convenient marking ring, for accurate placement of reference points on the work surface. Make your next remodeling job worry free with the help of the GMS120 scanner.

I bought this scanner about 2 months ago to help with assisting in finding live wires and copper pipes in the walls where I work. I'm a maintenancce technician and I do a lot of sheetrock repair and replacement. in the past I had to use a cheap little stanley wall scnanner that couldn't find a wall stud to save its life. I stumbled upon the bosch gms120 by accident online and read what it could do and decided to spend the extra money to try it out. I bought it online and when it arrived I put it to use asap. The stud finder is dead on accurate and the ability to find the center of the stud helps tremendously when cutting drywall and installing screws into the wall. The metal detection features are also very acurate in finding copper pipe and or rebar and the fact that it can distinguish between ferrous and non ferrous metals helps out a lot. The only issue I have with the scanner is the live wire detection. There has to be 120v+ power flowing through the wire to detect it and sometimes the scanner doesn't find the live wires. I've had the scanner right over live wires with 120v running through them and the scanner picked up a weak signal. Other than that this scanner works way better than I could ever imagine or expect. I highly recommened this scanner to any homeowner or professional out there. The cost is a little bit much but well worth is if you use it often.

I have had the opportunity to use this device twice. Each time I knew I was looking for rafters above a ceiling that was set down 1/2-inch from the rafters with metal supports. Neither the rafters nor the metal bars were detected. I did use the "wood" and "metal" detection settings. I have 20-plus other Bosch products which I use (mostly) without issue or concerns.

Great product

Comments about Bosch Tools Digital Multi-Scanner:

I'm a retired electrician and this product is great for finding hidden wires. I'm still trying to figure how to work it with walls made of lathe and plaster for stud location

Works very well

By

Comments about Bosch Tools Digital Multi-Scanner:

Essential tool before hanging pictures or mounting a shelf when a mistake and hitting a wire or a pipe could be dangerous and certainly more expensive than the scanner.not the cheapest on the domestic market but by far the best.

Located rebar

By 

from Ontario, Canada

Comments about Bosch Tools Digital Multi-Scanner:

I received this tool as a Christmas gift to replace me dead stud finder. My first use of the tool was to see if it would detect rebar in a six inch thick concrete floor. I had a fairly good idea where the 12" X 12" grid was but this tool allowed me to install 4" anchors with increased confidence. I was installing an automotive hoist...5 anchors per column. I did not hit one rebar (rebar was installed on 3" pedestals so it should have been 3" deep...my holes were 5"). I am looking forward to testing the other features of this tool but considering that I only expected it to be used for finding studs the tool has already exceeded my expectations. My rating may seem low considering this note but since I have yet to try any other functions of this tool I think 4 is pretty fair.

    Very nice to use

    By 

    from Brantford, ON, Canada

    Comments about Bosch Tools Digital Multi-Scanner:

    This unit lets me know what is behind the wall for the most part. I gave it a 4 star as it gave me very error readings on a drywalled home where I could not figure out what was behind the existing wall. This could have more to do with what was behind the wall rather than the unit. This unit will work with plaster but follow directions!

    Short learning curve

    By 

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Bosch Tools Digital Multi-Scanner:

    I have several "stud finders" that I have accumulated over time. None of them ever really exuded confidence to me that they were accurately detecting stud location. Forget confidence that I was actually driving a screw or nail close to the center of the stud. This new Bosch GMS120 eliminates the guesswork. In one situation I had the drywall open in a couple spots so was able to really see the accuracy of the center finder. It also quickly reports the presence of metal and electrical cables. I'm not an operators manual reader so I also liked the ease of use and quick learning curve of this device also.
