    Thanks for constructive input. Legal department will take care of this. Its great that some here stress the legalities and safety. While others seem to take my questions too personally. Mods please close this thread before Cowboy have an aneurysm or heart attack. Thanks to all for the input.

    Its not that simple. I addressed your first comment in prior post. That's like me, a noob, coming here and saying "whats the fuss? Why don't you guys just put a magnifying glass in front of your laser and run a wire to a 12v car battery. If it can start my car it can make the laser run...

    Help Needed: Accurate laser for aiming

    You are correct on the base plate and its alignment to the light and laser. Its addressed on my prior post. I can either find a reliable laser with xy adjustments or fabricate a base with xy adjustments. I was hoping to find a laser with xy hence me joining this forum. I replaced an inept...

    Help Needed: Accurate laser for aiming

    Some other things that I have considered is using a cheap red dot scope, similar to those used on pistols and having the installer aim through the viewfinder.

    I thought about this but it will take too long to find the correct location. I imagine its like being in pitch black and tasked to find a dime 100 Ft away with a hand held laser.

    Yes unfortunately, most if not all installs are baseball fields and football fields. It looks like I will most likely have to fabricate custom adjustable mounts to compensate for the variances in the lasers.

    Help Needed: Accurate laser for aiming

    I'm away from the office so no pictures currently. I would rather not buy from steiner if it's not necessary. The laser is only used after new installation so most likely only be used for one project. As an oem we are trying to get costs down but still use a good product. Many of the...

    Help Needed: Accurate laser for aiming

    Any suggestions on make/model? I can live with 5mW. When aiming the entire site is considered a work zone so not too worried about lawsuits and such. The aiming process is common in the industry, I am just working on improvements.

    I just need advice on a reputable brand, I understand how most if not all generic chinese products have varying quality. They may all look the same on the outside but some are better than others.
