I just picked up a dewalt cross line laser. It was on sale a at Lowes.

I noticed that it doesn't have a mechanism to lock the pendulum, is this normal for this type of laser? it seems fishy, I might return it and get the bosch.

I think the johnson may have the lock. It's a bit bigger of a unit.

Since switching over to renos, I have used the Dewalt cross line a lot. Our lead hand has one, and it is pretty much in use every day.

Seems like it will be handy for walkout basements and also partition layout sometimes


So you think it's good enough for job site use Brutus?

The Dewalt or Johnson? I have never used the Johnson, myself. But I was looking at them last week for my own use, for when I am not with that particular lead.

The Dewalt we have used for many things to far. Leveling out ceilings, lining out for new beams/joists when no straight line was available, prepping level lines for new basement slab.

I have a Bosch GLL2-40 that locks the pendulum when you turn it off. If it goes off automatically after being on for a period of time, the pendulum doesn't lock because the switch has to be in the off position.
