Has anyone else worked with the CST Berger transit/levels and had problems with calibration?
Yes and I have had my laser level since 2001 and I just sent it in for a service and it has definitely paid for itself thru the time it saved me and keeping everything accurate. I just bought a cheap laser from home depot for $70 that does something similar and it worked out fine. I was out of state doing a siding job. I think there a must for contractors

Berger auto level problem

In these and other cheaper levels the magnets used for damping the oscillation of the levelling mirrors etc start to lose their plating and these bits jam between the copper eddy current plate and the magnet. Not easy to get out as they stick to the magnet but it can be done using a small piece of sticky tape. If it jams the pendulum part it will screw up the readings. Remember to run a 2 peg test after as you will upset the original setting.
