I'd like a dead basic, cheap as chips laser level. For extremely limited, DIY use. Only possible deal breaker is that it would, ideally, have a beam of 25'.

Just gazing out at my hedge, see. Damn thing's going wild. Desperately needs a cut. I'd like to do a better job than last time. Was thinking about a string line. But, A/ I'd likely cut it. And, B/ I fukking hate wrapping those things back up!

Then, I had a stroke of genius! Position a Laser! Easy to see and follow. Can't cut the fukking thing! :boogy: Hedge is 46' long. So, I could set the lazer at the other end and work the the other end / middle.

Amazon has them, £25 / 30. Anyone know anything, please?

Or worse still he’ll cut through the beam and it’ll be useless then

Laser levels  aren't great in daylight. 

All sorted, luckily I was in the area and was happy to help.

Being slightly old school I can only comment as follows. When my brother and I were doing, kitchens, bedrooms, patios etc., we used laser a lot but relied on the fact that we either had a solid background or similar where there were points of reference. Not sure how laser can pick up midair as it’s an indefinite beam. I can only assume that you plan to drop the overall height by a margin to enable the beam to function. Even then, as soon as you cut the first section along the beam, then the beam will disappear into the ether. Only my opinion. Jok.

Just more kit at risk of being nicked. 👍😂

It's these fukking DeWalt creamers that do my head in, mate! 🙄 Chink made. Same as the rest. I'd be proud to have Any Milwaukee tool in my work room.

Sorry my friend I wasn’t trying to be clever. Think of it as a torch beam. If it hasn’t got a focal point then it will just break up as the beam gets wider and wider. A laser does not do that. It will look for a target for as long as the beam has no solid stop. In other words it can go on, with the same diameter for ever. Jok.

Better idea, knock some travellers up. Just need a few bits of wood and some nails. 😉

No seriously Jok, travellers as in profile boards and not gypsies. 😂
