I am planning on doing some floor tiling and saw in a book where they
use lasers instead of a chalk line so you don't have to worry about
covering up your chalk line with this that and the other... I have
looked at the lasers at Lowes and Home Depot but they all don't really
say if the do laser chalk lines on the floor. Most seem to advertise
as doing vertical and horizontal lines on walls.
Can anyone lead me to some brands and models that will do a 40' line
on the floor that cost under 100 bucks.
Probably any of the cheap laser levels will do.
Your only need is for one that will project a line on a surface.
I have used one many times for this and wouldn't do it any other way. I have
the one from straightline that is shaped like a tape measure.
If you are doing something complicated like an "L" shaped room, there are
ones that project two lines at 90 degrees.
I just went through looking for one myself. I went over $100 but the extra
$30 was worth is for a pole stand.
Under $100, I would get the Black and Decker CrossFire.
It has both vertical and horizontal lines and it auto leveling. Autoleveling
was the feature I wanted most and highly recommend. You just put it down and
it finds vertical and horizontal, no hassles!
For doing floors, just put the unit lower to the ground and use a vertical
line. Its vertical throw is about 90 degrees, so at a foot or so off the
ground, you are going to get a pretty long line.
good god man, just pop some lines on the floor and send me the extra
don't use red chalk.
I chalk minez all the time. The chalk sets into the thinset, and is
ultimately far beneath the grout.
Send me that extra money!!! :O
