has anyone tried a RoboToolz RT-7615-2
This one is selfleveling and claims ±.25" @65' leveling accuracy.
I just tried the B&D 360° level from H-D ($145) and the 360° feature was
neat, but not totally necessary, and the optics were good, but the accuracy
wasn't so hot, returned it.
Any other ideas in this price range, or is this like carpenter levels where
keep testing units until you find one that checks out OK?
The professional units are pretty good. The self leveling ones seem to
be reasonably accurate but if you want a line that is easy to read, you want
the expensive professional units.
For most home type work, just use a good basic bubble level.
I have a sears unit that they wife bought me last year.
Its not a bad unit, just the level doesnt seem on the mark
all the time. I like the fact that I dont have to snap a chalk
line, but I always confirm the accuracy with my trusty handy
dandy 4 foot level.
I just checked my cheapo laser level (one of those yellow ones at Harbor
Freight for $10) and it was within 0.125" at 40'.
Pretty amazing for sighting a bubble. I moved and reset it several times
with the same results.
I thought the self leveling feature would be good, but the B&D unit for $145
didn't get near this accuracy.
I have good uses for wide or even 360° lines, so now I thinking about trying
out one of the units without the self leveling (less $).
I think a lot of it is whether the particular unit is calibrated correctly.
