I'm looking for recommendations on a good circuit finder. Mainly for finding separate wall circuits, not breakers.

I would recommend the Scotchtrak Circuit Tracer. It will allow you to locate, trace and identify hot and neutral wires for feeder and branch circuit wiring, breakers, and outlets. Most circuit tracers require that you de-energize the distribution system. The Scotchtrak Circuit Tracer enables you to trace the circuits of an energized system. The tracer consists of a transmitter that draws a pulse current from the line that is returned on the neutral, and a detector that senses the unique electromagnetic field around the line created by the pulse current.

 

Scotchtrak circuit tracers are easy to use. First, plug-in the transmitter to the circuit you want to trace. Then hold the detector to a breaker, cable, or outlet. If it is the same circuit, the detector will sense the unique electromagnetic field and emit both a visible and an audible signal. By tracing the magnetic field in this fashion you can locate the breaker, wires, and outlets that correspond to that circuit. With that knowledge you can now safely distribute your lighting load over the house distribution system without overloading a circuit and tripping its breaker. Use this link for more information on the Scotchtrak Circuit Tracer : http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/304263O/kits-de-rastreo-de-circuitos.PDF
