1 laser mostly use stick levels even to double check the laser. Should up my technology game as I rely on the laser measuring tool a lot.

I have a few cross lasers that I love. Rarely pull out the bubble levels anymore though I do use the 4 footer pretty regularly. Couldn't work without them. This one would go well in the collection. Being green is a big plus.

The green PLS I won last time puts out an amazing line.

Couple torpedoes, 2-4' sticks and older Stabila laser, with the red glasses so I look like Bono when I use it outside. Door installs, cab setting, TV mounts, etc.

2, 4 and 6 foot sticks. Have a transit... does that count? Laser would be sublime... total station would be better... Is that the next give away? :thumbsup:

I have 4-5 stick levels torpedo through 6’6”.
One Bosch rotary laser for concrete work, 2 smaller Bosch lasers for interior use, one has a the plumbing points.

Would love to try out green! I’m almost embarrassed to post on IG showing a red laser

I have a bunch of various levels I don't use because they're all junk. I use the stabila 59" and 24" kit for everything now. I picked up a Bosch GLL 2-45 for deck work but the red line is difficult to see.

I use eight different levels currently, and would love to add a green line!

  • Mini level - Milwaukee
  • Torpedo level - Stabila
  • 2' stick level- Stabila
  • 4' stick level - Stabila
  • 78" screed level - Sola
  • Red laser line level - DeWalt
  • Water Level - the ancients
  • Plumb Bob - the ancients

I use stick levels, torpedo through 6 footers. I don't use them as often as I use to though.

I have pretty basic Bosch red line cross laser that sees frequent use. I have been shopping for an upgrade. Got it initially just for tile, but now use it for all sorts of tasks. Hanging doors, pictures, shower doors, cabinets, marking potlight locations...

Alot..
I use torpedoes for pipe and conduit.. and fixtures and medicine cabinets
I use 24" and 48" levels for general purpose
I use a 96" Empire for framing walls
I use lasers for cabinets and drop ceilings
I even use the 2 sided post levels

I have a bullseye level built in to a plastic circle for some tile installs (Tavy tile puck)
I've even used a water level a time or 2.

AND, if I win, it would be a perfect birthday gift.

I've got a whole setup of Bostich levels from the torpedo all the way through to 8'.

Hilti line laser and a PLS red dot laser which are worth their weight for running soffits and stud and wall layouts.

Also have the ol' plumb bob for metal door frames.

I have a worn out Bosch laser and 5-6 random sticks. Random length and brands. My everyday is a 4 ft johnson that rides in the truck with me, several others in the trailer for different tasks.

A new laser would be great!
