Our current issue contains a review of pro-grade line lasers that sell for $300 or less. After the magazine went to the printer it occurred to me that some of you might want to see.
a live demonstration of how these tools work so I took a few of them to a friend's jobsite and shot some video. Two of the tools are from the story we just did; the other is a more expensive model from a story we did last year. These are what I consider to be good, better, and best line lasers from the Bosch product line. I'll cover some of the other brands in future videos.
An overlooked problem is that some manufacturers do not want their lasers exposed to hot or cold conditions. Which means you can't store them in your truck year 'round. That was enough to make me choose a brand which did not have that limitation.
