For this post, I have put together a collection of the best laser measuring tools available for purchase.
UPDATED: June 11, 2019.
No more dragging a tape measure across a room for a "close enough" measurement. These laser tools are typically accurate to 1/16" and give you an instant measurement with just the touch of a button.
Note, this is not to be confused with a laser level, which provides a reference line within a space.
If you are unfamiliar with how to use a laser measuring tool, here is a brief video overview:
So if you are looking for a gift or something for yourself, you are sure to find the right tool for the job.
