    Thanks for the reply. Such a handy bit of kit will be using it for most things then.

    Love them for putting a laser line around a room when fitting a couple rads. Quick check to show floor levels and no pencil marks on walls.
    Also perfect for marking electrical switch height positions around a kitchen or workshops

    What make n models do you good folks use, all I know is that the green lasered versions are easier to see.

    Yes! I use a Bosch Pro red laser one, only a cheapy but does a fine job. Use it for most pipe runs (especially boilers) bath battens, lining up concealed shower fittings and FIC back plates, radiators (especially tall decorative ones), notching and drilling joists (brilliant for this) levelling anything really! I use a Stabila laser stand/expansion pole with it. Also useful for blinding the apprentice.

    I haven’t used mine yet but my chippy mate was on a job with me and I was doing rad drops with a level he pulled his laser out and it was 10 times quicker he just hanged it up on the bracket it comes with and off you go

    I’ve used a Hilti lazer level to do a commercial pipping job not used it since.

    Don’t bother for small jobs.
