Johnson 40-0912 Self-Leveling Cross-Line Laser Level
We thought we would never need to compose another word about laser levels after the Big Bosch Laser Bonanza that we had going on a bit back. In any case, we got to conversing with the people at Johnson Level and Tool and they proposed that we try out their new Self-Leveling Cross Line Laser. We had a group of activities coming up that would be flawless testing grounds. Also, we were truly awed with their Laser Level and Angle Locator so we joyfully concurred.
Fundamentally, the Johnson laser is a truly stripped-down product. It is about the extent of a grapefruit and it has a solitary dial on the side. At the point when the dial is clicked to off, the laser pendulum in the lodging is secured so it won’t get harmed amid transport. At the point when it’s tapped on, the pendulum swings openly and ventures a cross laser line (one on the X, one on the Y). There is no way to turn off one of the beams, so you are getting the cross in any case, and there are no cautions when it leaves level. However, the beam shuts off if it’s too far out of level.
Self-Leveling Cross-Line laser level emits one cross-line beam, comprising of one horizontal line and one vertical line, making this laser level perfect for hanging pictures, installing tiles, shelves, and cabinets.

In addition, Johnson 40-0912 Self-Leveling Cross-Line Laser Level isn’t to say anything terrible in regards to the instrument. Just to clarify that it’s not an element loaded one. We contrasted the Johnson line with the Bosch Dual Plane laser and discovered that at around 5′ the Bosch’s line is only a hair brighter. At around 15′, the Johnson is additionally somewhat more slender (which we really observe as something worth it).
What we truly enjoyed about the Johnson laser are the extras that accompany it. Of these, the most imperative is the tripod. The level screws on to it and there is a little wrench that raises the level stage all over. The wrench is not that smooth and it’s difficult to make small scale changes, yet with a little tolerance, it works. The tripod additionally has a little bubble level to guarantee a level set-up. Being able to position the laser with the tripod far exceeds any issues with the tripod itself. It implies that you can really put the laser where you need it (especially the flat) as opposed to being compelled to utilize off-sets and benchmarks.
Moreover, the Johnson 40-0912 Self-Leveling Cross-Line Laser Level additionally accompanies a couple of red glasses which enable the user to resemble a Tron extra, as well as to see the laser lines in brilliant daylight. You will look absurd, however it’s extraordinary that Johnson added them to the unit.
In case you are a contractor or a DIYer searching for a cheap laser set-up, this one is certainly worth considering. It’s not the most expound laser available, but rather when you consider all that you’re getting, $100 is a truly pleasant cost.
