You might get more use out of plain neodymium magnets[ebay.com]. Wrap in painters tape if you need help handling them. 10mm x 1mm are pretty comfortable to use and still pretty cheap.
I've come across a tip like this before. As I happened to have a heavy magnet left over from some old work project, which involved point-of-purchase signage which included some heavy magnets for hanging purposes, I thought I would give it a shot. The magnet is about 2" in diameter and about a quarter inch thick though hollowed out in the center (small hole).
Tried to use this magnet in a couple different homes just to see if it would work. And it did, but not as well as a stud finder. Not that any of the few studfinders I've used were all that good either. Though I don't know if the magnet I have is "neodymium" or not.
To find the stud, look in the mirror. funny ha ha, etc.

I took mangodrink's advice and got 20 8x1 for $1.36 shipped.

Gotta laugh at that one!
Can you post the link. I'm thinking about a) making the same purchase and b) having a bit of a laugh while doing so. Thanks!!
Sometimes it's important to understand exactly how much you don't know.
