Forge Steel LD-SC1R Rotary Laser Level
Better than a Sprit Level!
I would have to agree with "Cross (Bristol)"'s earlier review. I guess the description is for the earlier model, but definitely not this one. There is no longer a vertical laser, previously the beam was split with a prism on the rotating top.
There is only a single tripod mount on the base, but not an issue for me.
The vial's do not appear to be backlit.
Having said that it works,including the rotary, all be the dot is slightly larger. Improvement on the battery compartment lid and the tripod is a little sturdier than it's predecessor . For the money it's not bad compared to others at five times the price.

Doesn't do as advertised.
'Great value level with integrated vertical and 360Â° horizontal rotary action and dot modes. Top laser point for ceiling working and LED backlight under vial for night working.'
But it doesn't. There is no vertical function on this level. Niether the dot or the 360 rotating function are present. The ability to remount the level on the tripod on its side is not there and the vials wouldn't work at this angle anyway. Disappointed.
My old forge steel 360 degree level broke, this is more expensive and has less features! Not happy, I needed to use it this weekend!!!!
