I am Mr. Cool Tool and I am here today to tell you about a cool laser level. No, it is me Tim Carter. Have you ever used regular levels before in your home improvement projects, you know what I am talking about.
A simple level like this one or even a more modern one such as this electronic level and even the old fashioned torpedo levels, they are really pretty good for certain things but they have their limitations. Let us say you are trying to make a really long line down a wall.
Every time you move that level you have a chance to make a mistake. Same thing if you are trying to make a long vertical line up a wall. Every time you slide the level up or down, mistakes can happen. What if I told you there is a new laser tool out there that will project a level line for 10, 20 or 30 feet and it is perfect each and every time.
These cool laser levels actually come with three components. You have the actual laser itself, you have the precision leveling base, and there is also a wall mounted base. Each of these have magnetic plates at the bottom so that the level itself will stick to the bases.
The first thing you have to do is actually calibrate the level. Use the three leveling pins to go ahead and get the actual bubble between the two black lines. Once you are there, it will now project a level laser line.
You can go ahead and put the precision leveling base on a table or on a stack of books to get the right height or put it on a standard camera tripod. I have got my precision wood level up against the wall to prove to you that these laser levels work. This wood level is reading perfectly level and you can see that it works.
One other thing, these laser levels actually project a line around corners so you can aim it into a corner and it will project a line on both walls at the same time. These laser levels are great tools but they are not toys. Do not look at the beam with your own eyes and do not aim it at anybody else. Make sure you wear these safety glasses any time that you use the tool.
