Review of the Bosch GLM 50C (Laser Measurement)
« on: November 20, 2015, 02:35 PM »
Below is a review of the Bosch GLM 50C laser measurement device.  It has a color backlit screen with Bluetooth connectivity.  I have been pretty impressed by this tool so far.  If you do field work, this tool is an outstanding investment.

Shucks, I am always behind the curve on these things... ...that looks plenty useful. I have two Leica rangefinders and I love the small one but I hardly ever use the other one. This one would replace them both for me. But now I am stocked to the gills already.
Festool:  CS 50EB precisio set, Domino DF500, DF XL 700, OFK500 edge router, OF1010 router EHL65 planer, CTL Mini/Midi Vac, CTL 26 vac MFT800+1080 tables
DSC-AG Grinder,  RAS 115
Rotex 150, ETS EC 150/5 RTS400
Drills: T18, BHC18, CXS.
SysLite KAL II, SYS Rock.
Sys- and Sortainers galore.

Line up has been reduced with the introduction of Mafell/Metabo tools. Red Green and Blue do mix well in the shop.

Thanks for the review. I have the previous model GLM 50, the one that is difficult sometimes to read the screen on but is still a very useful tool especially on installations.
 But this new model is light years ahead so much more functionality, I really like the colour screen as well.

I bought that to use with Home Designer Pro.  I can take measurements in their app on an iPhone or iPad and import the drawing into Home Designer or Chief Architect.  It has some amazing features.
