NWI NLP05 Three, Four, Five Selectable Point Laser

We don’t have much experience with NWI, so it is a little hard to speak about in regards to longevity and quality of the laser.  However we did give this away to a reader (Nicholas) who I am sure will let us know there thoughts in our forum. The laser is self leveling and with one push button, it couldn’t be any easier.  Just push the button to set the laser to desired points.  On the side of the unit, is the on/off switch which also sets the laser to self leveling or free mode.  The unit does look well protected...

Bosch GLL3-80 3 Plane 360-Degree Leveling and Alignment Line Laser

I stated back in an earlier review that the Bosch GLL3-80 is the best laser and I still stand by that claim.  I know some might argue with me, but just check out what others are saying about the Bosch GLL3-80 Laser.  This is truly your one stop laser and the only laser you will need, well to an extent. If you’re not familiar with this laser you can check out our other review of the Bosch Laser, but I do want to cover some things that make this laser so great.  First, you get a full 360° plane...

Wisconsin has always had deep tool roots, leading companies like Milwaukee Tool, Rolair, Miller, Rotozip all got started there.

Bosch GSL 2 Surface Laser Review

Awhile back when we attended the Bosch media event, we had a chance to see the worlds first surface laser.  At the time we thought this was pretty cool, however we never really had a chance to play with it that day.  Well that changed, we now have one we could take for a test drive and actually use.  I have to say this is one of the coolest inventions.  Not only is this laser a piece of cake to use, it’s so practical. There are plenty of times when you need to make sure your floor is level...

CST/Berger LL20 Self Leveling 360 Degree Exterior Line Laser

When we attended the Bosch event, we had a chance to get hands on time with CST/Berger lasers.  We have never reviewed any products from CST/Berger, so when we had the chance to take a closer look, we couldn’t pass it up.  CST/Berger is one of the premier professional laser companies on the market.  Visit any job site or any other area where accuracy and durability count and you’ll probably find one of CST/Berger’s products on hand.  Now I can’t say I do a lot of outside leveling jobs, maybe three a year.  In the past I have always...

So what makes this laser so cool?  You can see by the pictures below, there are actually three laser lines, horizontal and...
