Hi Everyone From Rochester NY


Hello everyone. I'm an avid DIY'er well versed in all aspects of home improvement...........new construction, framing , roofing, concrete, tile, remoldeling kitchens& baths, etc, but I'm always on the lookout to learn more. I do this as a hobby, on my old house, and the homes of friends. I came to the forum to research laser levels. Looking forward to chatting with the group.

Hi Everyone From Rochester NY


Hi,

There are some very good laser levels out there with models for homeowners as well as the pros. One of the best brands is Pacific Laser Systems (PLS). PLS definitely has the best beam definition and accuracy in the market.
The units start at $200 and go over $1000. For the homeowner the reasonably priced PLS2E is a good unit and will make everything from hanging cabinets and laying out rough-in plumbing to hanging artwork and installing tile a snap. While $200 sounds like a lot, it's a good investment if you have a lot of projects that need level and plumb lines.

Here is an ebay guide on picking the right laser level for your project:

Good luck with your search and your projects.

Hi Al,

You will really enjoy your PLS laser level. I don't know how we got along in the construction business before these great little tools came along.
Happy construction!

Hi Everyone From Rochester NY


I agree! The first time I used a framing nailer, I think I fell in love.

Hi Everyone From Rochester NY


It's dead in the water, docked at the city pier, at a cost to the taxpayers, of $6000 a day.

Hi Everyone From Rochester NY


My friends that live near there have been telling me about the situation.

I thought that it was sold at an auction?

Hi Everyone From Rochester NY


I thought it was also, but something happened to stall out the sale.

Hi Everyone From Rochester NY


Will the original investors who "took" all the money be arrested?

Hi Everyone From Rochester NY


I understand the former mayor and his cronnies are being looked at pretty hard.
