(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 4 )
I am interested in buying an adjuster-tested laser measuring device that works well indoor and outdoors.&160; Although I 've been a roofer/remodeler for two decades, I never really had to use a pointing device to take my measurements as there is always somebody else present to handle the other end of the tape. My search has narrowed it down to three instruments; of which I need to choose one!&160; a) the Stabila 200 at http://www.toolup.com/stabila/06200.html&160; &160;b) and c) Leica Disto ...

1 Replies and 2309 Views Warm Winter  2309  1 Started by  ntzjazz While inspecting a crop claim late yesterday, got covered with ticks and I am working in Montana. Once noticed, must have picked a dozen ticks off my clothes while in the hay field and 6 more driving down the road. Found 4 more on me back at the motel, get some bug spray before you go out. It was a warm winter everywhere in the lower 48 and the bugs will be crawling!

Estes Fortunately, for me these days I use building access to Roofs on most all of my claims, however I do like to run a few storm's a year to make that annual hit in the wallet. in 2011 I was on a small event and ran across a Roofer who had a telestep Ladder, All setup and nice.
