2 tools questions

I need a wooden handle for my rip saw. Couldn't find one on the net, any suggestions?

Trying to quiet the hardwood floors squeeking on the second floor. I have 2 stud sensors, but they don't find joists. Is there a good product that will find those joists so I can minimize holes in the hardwood.

You could make your own handle.

Try a small metal detector like http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=9903&filter=metal%20detector

Use it to locate the flooring nails.

As far as finding the joist's goes I recently used these on a project and they worked really well. The price is right too. They do take a while to ship though since they need to go through time warp security. Dunno......... Jack's idea may be a good one, considering.

Ignore the girl stuff........ They should work on joists just as well. (If you want.) "see legs right thru your pants"............. Yeah,...........Right...........
