While some temp guns are only good for indoor or outdoor use, this one is designed to be used in either area.  The protected LCD screen is easy to read, plus a back-lit LED screen helps...

Dewalt Lasers – Christmas in a 12V

If you have been following us for a while, you already know the Bosch GLL-80 is my favorite laser (See our revisit of the Bosch Laser).  I love the laser because it’s not only durable, but practical.  The Bosch has the capability to project a line laser 360° in a horizontal and vertical direction.  Well Dewalt came out with their new Dewalt lasers and we had a chance to take a look at all four models.
