Default Best laser level under 100 bucks.

What self level laser do you guys suggest for that price. I need it to go vertical and horizontal and be mounted either on a wall or floor. I don't have room for a tripod.

I never contemplated operating out of a taxi.

But I can see where that'd actually make sense in New York City.

For everyone outside of Gotham: parking there ranges from insane to impossible.

Tripods are tiny. Mins a foot tall and 6 inches in diameter. Then like magic it gets really big. Not like an air bag tho.

Anyway...

Scavenge up a beam clamp and some 1/4"x20 rod on the job and you might not need a tripod.

This is what I use. Don't know why a tri pod is necessary. If there's nothing metal to attach the magnet to I get as close as I can with the beam and then measure off of it
