Laser Levels


I can't believe how I got along without my laser level in the past. From hanging cabinets to installing crown molding, from installing hardwood floors to laying tile, every job is easier and more professional since I started using a laser level.
With the holidays, a laser level would also make a great gift for a special family member or friend. Or better yet, start dropping hints about getting one from Santa.
Happy Holidays to all!

They are neat for sure.....sometimes, I wonder why I still carry the old fashioned stuff..transit, levels, grade rod...etc.

Make sure to check them every time with your longest level. Every one I have owned went bad. Lucky I didnt set a whole rooom of cabs 2" out of level without noticing.

Laser Levels


Lasers!? What kind of sorcery is this?

I like to do things the old fashion way I guess. I dont think anything will beat my Cricks 4 footer.


Although I have seen laser systems for doing countertop work. It maps out the entire countertop for you. With all the angles stored into the memory that you transfer to your computer.

Of course at a price of 10k, you better have some jobs lined up.

Hey 6stringmason, that thing beats the cardboard and scissors method I use for solid tops! Simply amazing.

Laser Levels


Well, someone post for the sake of selling laser ... is kind of difficult, consider this tool becomes so popular you can almost buy them in the convenient store... it is not really a propritory product where you can buy it from only one source... and it comes with so many variarity form and shapes... when things like that, trust me, Ebay buyers won't pay much for it rather than trying to get it for a buck or two as they know there are tons around in the world... things usually hot in Ebay are those which is hard to get or extremely expensive in stores...

Yeah, actually the first post was an obvious sales pitch, but I'm still glad I got to see that one that lays out a template for you, that is very nice. I did one job that was totally not standard and making templates for it was very tough. Of course, if it really is 10k, my next job is still going to be tough.

I use something a little more rigid and durable than cardboard. Get some 1/8" doorskin and rip it down to 2-2 1/2" strips. Then I use a glue gun and some small clamps and the stay together nicely.
