laser measuring tools
 
I need to find the best laser measuring tool for a professional carpenter.
It is a gift and I would like to find THE BEST product for betwee $100-$250 dollars. Any help would be appreciated.

There is a trade magazines that does nothing but test tools for trades people. There is probably a good article on lasers there. www.toolsofthetrade.com

Just be sure whatever you buy has a tight enough tolerance. One of the kids gave me one of these from Home Depot for Christmas (maybe cost $40) and it is useless for real carpentry because it only reads to the nearest inch.

The prices of these things have really come down in the past few years.
