The new GLR225 laser distance measuring device offers a range of up to 230 feet and an accuracy of 0.06 inches at 33 feet. It gives users the flexibility to measure from four distinct reference points—from front or back of the laser, from a 1/16 inch-threaded tripod mount, or from a swing-out extension pin. The tool also calculates measurements in a variety of ways, including length, area, and volume. Cost: $149. Bosch Measuring Tools. 877-267-2499. www.boschtools.com.
