Bosch GLM 35 & 40 Distance Measurement Tool

Bosch is known for a lot of innovative and useful tools.  One thing they are not only known for, but respected for are their full line of measuring tools.  While most companies try to compete against Bosch by releasing a one size fits all solution, Bosch takes a different approach.  Bosch realizes users are different, some people need all the bells and whistles and others need a simple measuring tool. So Bosch created a multiple line of measuring tools which brings us to the GLM 35 and GLM 40.  If you are looking for simple tools to use that...

Bosch GLM 15 Laser Measure

The Bosch GLM 15 is something I have wanted since it came out.  Now don’t expect a lot from this tool.  It doesn’t do square footage or all the other fancy things and that is why I wanted this tool.  I wanted something simple, reliable and durable.

Milwaukee Laser Distance Meter 2282-20

A while back we did a review of the Milwaukee Laser Distance Meter 2280-20.  Now we are here to tell you about the 2282-20.  Ok there we told you.  Ok your probably thinking about the stats and should you upgrade.  First is the question of upgrade.  If you own the 2280, no I wouldn’t spent my money.  The meter does have 7 measurement function: length, area, volume, indirect measurement (Pythagoras), and stake-out, timer and horizontal mode.  Accuracy of 1/16″ and a range of up to 260ft. The screen is easy on the eyes and even someone like me or...

NWI Laser Distance Measurement Device Model LSC 60

Today we are going over the NWI Laser Distance Measurement.  This is by no means a review, it’s more of an overview of a device we found a while back.  In fact, Mike Z would be the best to talk about this since he won it.  Now I would like to say sorry to Mike Z because it has taken me longer to ship out and as I sit here and write this overview, the device is sitting next to me getting ready to go into a USPS box. We first saw NWI at a trade show a while...

Johnson Laser Distance Measure – Review

I’ve never really been one to embrace change. As evidence, I still had a water bed until 2004, and even then it took my family throwing it away while I was out of town to finally get me out of it. Needless to say, I wasn’t exactly at the front of the line when these Laser Distance contraptions came out. I spent a great deal of time learning to read a tape measure properly, and anything that rendered that effort useless seemed like a waste of time. I eventually realized that if everyone looked at things like this we’d...

Hilti PD 40 Laser Range Meter

If you have been on any job site, you have probably used or at least seen the name Hilti.  We were very excited when we had a chance to test and review the Hilti PD 40 Laser Range Meter.  Having tools that are durable and accurate are a must, but it is even more important when it comes to distance measuring tools.  If your measurements are off, then be prepared to up your wallet because you are just wasting money and time.     Manufacturer – Hilti Model – PD 40 Average Purchase Price – $329 (Might have a different price at...

Milwaukee Laser Distance Meter 2280-20

There is nothing like having a great measuring tool.  Having an accurate tool is important as measurements that are off can add up and cost a lot with wrong estimates.  So lets get into my new Milwaukee LDM 2280-20. The unit is powered by two AAA batteries that can take up to 5,000 measurements before you need to replace the batteries.  Now we didn’t test this, but we will take Milwaukee’s word about this figure.  The unit is small at 4-1/2″ long and 1″ thick.  On the sides and corners, there is rubber that protects it from drops and...
