hesitant to mount my Sound Organisation LP12 wall rack

I have been listening to my new Radikal-ized and Karousel-ized LP-12 on top of my equipment rack. 

Unfortunately footfalls are make me have to tip toe to change records. I have my old Sound Organization rack that worked perfectly at my old house. Unfortunately I have plaster walls with this really weird aluminum lathe backing it that makes it next to impossible to locate the wall studs. 

This type of listening where I can't jump up and down is driving my crazy and also I cannot have a party while it it like this. 

Please encourage me! From, Bill in Ohio, USA.

Having a dedicated stand for your LP12 should sound better than having it share a stand with other components. Light and rigid is the key to a good LP12 stand.

The aluminum lath is nailed in place with steel nails.  A small, very strong, magnet (eg a neodymium) magnet should be able to hold on the wall where the nails/staples are located.

I think most stud finders will detect aluminum as well (if not the magnetic trick works).
