Lowes is now carrying some crap called Red-Eye, made by GMC.
They have a complete line of tools with laser guides. I reckon the
laser will far outlast the tool. Here ya go, only 59.95...
I can't even get happy with a Crapsman tool, so I'm sure you know how I
feel about "no names". :)
Seriously, I was wondering if anyone had heard if the biggies had
anything coming done the pike with a laser assist. Surely Sears isn't
going to be the lone entrant in this field.
My suggestion, of course, was entirely tongue in cheek...
My favorite is the GMC 2 amp drill press with twin lasers that have to
be realigned every time you change the table height. <g> 2 amp...
that must be a whopping 1/16 HP. They don't even advertise the size
of this 'thing' (i.e. 8" - 12" etc.).
As for tools with lasers that actually WORK, the only one I know of is
the Porter Cable / Delta 12" compound miter saw. It does work well.
But seeing as how consumers are eating this crap up, I'm sure they
will have cordless laser guided screwdrivers before Christmas 2004.
Greg, I was going to ask if there's a laser guided pencil coming to town
soon; my penmanship is atrocious! :) or maybe a LG artist's brush; then
I can sate my desire to become an artiste. :)
