Self Leveling Laser Levels are becoming essential tools in any construction or remodelling project. Plumb, Level and Square alignments are no longer the painstaking work of old. Electricians, Plumbers, Carpenters, Civil Engineers and Interior Designers are showing increasing reliance on this handy modern laser tool for accurate measurements and for marking lines and distances. Gone are the days of fixing line levels and plumb levels. Gone are the days of painstaking markings getting disturbed by clowns masquerading as colleagues. Laser levels have taken over the basic marking role and are providing greater accuracy, ease of use and productivity than imaginable even a few years back. And they bring in additional features such as the ability for self leveling, attaching to different surfaces, audio signals, change in line color to indicate errors! There are basic laser levels in the range of $20, and laser distance measures in the range of about $100. But the real techy stuff with all the bells and whistles cost a bit more, about $150 to $300. Let us review a few of these models.
