Handheld laser measuring tools

Laser measures do the math for you. Can your tape measure do that?

Length: 5:24
Produced By: John Ross

From taking and storing measurements to calculating square footage, laser measures are efficient and accurate. In fact, despite the name's futuristic connotation, tool tester and carpenter Kit Camp won't be caught on the job without one. In this video, Fine Homebuilding editor Justin Fink demonstrates the laser measure's many features and benefits. 

For a more in depth look at these tools, including a buyer's guide, read Kit Camp's Tool Test: Laser Measures from Fine Homebuilding issue #198 (Oct/Nov 2008), pp. 68-71.
