Here is a fair review.
First of all the price is great. I needed a level to install some handrails and I could justify spending $70. Professional grade levels can be $300 - 700.
Easy to use, open the box, pull the legs out on the tripod, adjust level bubble (by adjusting the length of the tripod legs), put batteries in the unit, screw the unit onto the tripod, level the unit use the large leveling screws and leveling vials (they look like green tubes filled with antifreeze), turn on the unit (pretty nice, i like how the unit glows but it didn't spin like i expected) I tapped on the top of the unit and turned the dial some more to increased the power and the laser began to spin. I even tried on the amber glasses and yes they do help with seeing the line which was already easy see without the glasses. I've seen much brighter laser lines coming from more expensive levels.
I did a quick check of the level by taking my 4' bubble level putting it on the projected line and verifying that at 8' from the level unit it was level as advertised. I only did this step because i had the time (took about 30 seconds) and wanted to check out how accurate my new toy is. After this i know i can just set it up and lay my lines out.
Important review note: Because this level needs to be leveled manually you need to make sure you spend time to get it setup correctly or obviously its not going project a straight level line.
Ok, now that the review is done I want address some weak complains on the one star review.Read more ›
Recently, I was in Mills Fleet Farm one evening and saw that they had two on clearance for $50 each. Knowing that 'clearance' generally means 'good bye' as well as, occasionally, 'good buy', I decided it was a good time to pick one up as I certainly have enough times in my past where I wished I'd had a laser level and there will be enough times I'll be using one in the near future to justify $50 for this if it's even just 'passable'.
I have yet to actually use it for building or installation, but I have set it up for familiarization purposes and became well acquainted with it in approximately one half hour from sliding the paperboard sleeve away from the case and opening it up.
The most efficacious manner of deploying the Johnson 40-0918 is to first decide if the tripod is appropriate for what you plan to do. Much of the time it will be. If you need a horizontal line up to 48" above grade or floor, or if you want a vertical line, use the tripod. I didn't measure the diameter and pitch of the mounting screw, but it is much larger than the 1/4"-20 standard for most camera tripods. This is somewhat a moot point, though, as you'll be much better served using the included tripod with a centering level and cam locks over most any camera tripod you could come up with!Read more ›
I've previously rented the same or similar twice. The two rental fees would have paid for my own so I finally asked Santa to bring me one and he obliged.
I needed a spot level asap. Went to Home Depot and saw this unit.
Went across the street to Lowes and they had nothing but junk or too expensive.
Went back to HD and took this unit out of the box, put the batteries in and checked it out. You could see the dot from the front of the store to the back. Leveled up with the thumbscrews easy enough. Has a cute little tripod and a pair of sexy red glasses ( a must for viewing out in the sunlight), so I payed the 69 dollars and took it to the job.
The only thing that I really don't like about it is that in manual or "spot" mode, it has indents all the way around so that you can't point it and leave it where you want it (unless where you want it happens to be right where one of the indents are. Other than that, it did the job and didn't put me over my credit limit.
You actually get a nice leveling package including a decent tri-pod and a hard carry case, but take notice - this unit is described as a 'light-duty' unit (and not for commercial use) and contractors should probably buy more expensive units, but for the homeowner - it lived up to its description very nicely.
The biggest factor is you need to be able to 'center a bubble' on the units level vials - no big deal for most if you just take your time to do it right! Obviously some of the users above didn't do this step correctly and if you skimp here it won't be as accurate, but really, adjusting vial bubbles is not rocket science.
Granted a 'self-leveling' unit would certainly be nice, but for this low price and a few minutes spent adjusting the vial bubbles, you get a terrific package and for hundreds of dollars less. I used the level inside with great success and then even used it 'outside' which it is not designed for, but by turning the rotary feature off and just manually rotating the beam to desired points, the beam was quite bright and very easy to see.
Those that set up this unit correctly will be rewarded with a great little tool package and at a terrific price!
