Spare Tool

Looking for recommendations on a new mid price laser, not taking on many bathrooms any more if I can help it so don't need to spend £4/500 on 10 X 360 line jobbies, but there's always going to be the odd one I get forced into.. So looking at around £150 ish mark give or take, had a DeWalt DW 088k red and found the line a bit thick so they're out, but come across the Makitas SK103/4, Bosch GCL2, DeWalt DW 088 green beam, any on here use any of the above and can recommend, looking for a nice thin line and of course accuracy, or throw any other suggestions in the mix please?

You got one then H ...is the line quite thin? That's what I didn't like about the 088

I have the dw088 green and if you're after a thin line I would not recommend it.

I have a yellow spirit level, and a pencil that produces a nice thin line....:D
Next level you get that extends from 15cm to 20m and bends round corners let me know Andy and I'll have it off you :)

Used to have one mate. The line is not that thin but I really liked it
Had a look, look decent but trust you to top out my budget H ;) haha

I've seen them all and the most subtle is the bosch.
I believe that with £ 150, you can't have many things o_O

Watching this thread with interest......I dropped my basic, but useful Stanley laser a few weeks ago:eek:
Trying to find a pole mounted laser level proving to problematic as most seem to be magnetic.

Hmmm got the Stanley pole myself, wonder if it would be possible to attach a piece of steel to the existing pole clamp and use with the magnetic mounts..

I spent over £100 on the dewalt pole a couple of years ago and have used it less than 5 times. A hand saw works just fine

Do's that mean you would be willing to let it 'go' at a much reduced price;)

You obviously don’t know Harry very well! Haha

I thought most lasers had a tripod mount, even if it has magnets?
Even my green Dewalt has a screw mount, in fact two, different thread sizes.
And before you say they’re to big or too wide to sit in the Stanley mount, I got a clamp with a tripod mount thread that grabs the pole instead. I’ve had my Stanley pole for over 10 years now and still fit any laser to it. :)

So an offer too good to refuse has come up... My mate @widler broke the glass on his Makita Sk105dz, he's giving me the batteries and charger so just purchased the bare unit for £120 cheers Widdy :)

I know you have your solution Andy thanks to a very generous pal but i've seen a few people online now recommend Huepar lasers. Can get a 360 green at just over £200 if anyone has had any experience with them and can comment?

I'd need a few cans before i could commit to the Dewalt :joycat:

Looked at those myself Tony, just seems a lot of features for not a lot of money, so maybe the accuracy side may suffer, but as you say been well recommended online so maybe worth a punt..

Exactly what i was also thinking Andy, I'm just hoping for someone else to have been the guinea pig first, hopefully a more long term user

I've just had a look at some of the 'poorer' reviews.....and it seems to eat batteries, but you can't knock it for the price.
