Loren, a few months ago, I purchased a few laser levels from Bosch, Dewalt, CST-Berger, Skil, etc.

The problem with using any of those, while providing a great reference for rough or large scale work, is that they all are terrible at fine detail.

In this link, http://www.southernsprout.com/projects/tools-and-projects-to-come/ (scroll down (from my (our) blog)), you can see the issue you’ll be facing with most laser levels. The CST used a rotary mirror/prism to project a “plane”. The others employed similar but not rotary. The lines were way too thick for precision work, but work great for foundation measurements, gutter alignment, picture frames, cabinetry, etc.
