I'll second that.... Mine came in awfully handy when installing my kitchen
cabinets. Actually picked it up after I had used a chalkline and string
level to set the initial height. I was pleased to see that the laser level
line was dead on the chalkline. I too used a camera tripod, and it took
some finagling to get the line level and at the desired height. And make
sure once you do, you don't bump the tripod ;-)....
Not only was it used to set the horizontal height, but shooting a vertical
line made locating studs a breeze.
The laser level has two bubble levels and the base three adjustable legs.
Others are correct in stating that the line is only as level as the unit
is... And with the 'rose-colored' glasses, seeing the line in bright light
is a snap.
Need a straight line across the ceiling, piece of cake...
Say what you will about Craftsman tools, I give this one 4.5 out of 5 stars.
