    We use them for leveling my parents log house. It works very well and has an accuracy of 1/64 inch. Makes adjusting the 44 Jack's alot quicker than a tape measure for sure.

    The one we have is a Bosch. Unsure of the model.

    If they are accurate enough I think there would be several uses on the job site.

    Best thing would be to find the one you think would fit you best and try it out. Im not really in the know about them and what all they can do but the two we have for our application are huge timesavers.

    They save lots of time! Pretty fool proof as the eye has to be level or they won't turn on! Thus, no false readings!

    I've used my coworkers bosch on a few occasions. His had both distance and angle features we used that were accurate enough for most framing purposes.

    Used a buddies DeWalt when we rebuilt the floor joists in my living room to level it out and reinforce it. Was sloped almost 5" before we fixed it. The laser level made finding the truth line a breeze!!
