  • Digital Rangefinder

    Hi Folks,

    I'm in the market for a digital rangefinder in hopes of speeding up my estimates / material calcs, etc. Haven't come across one made by our friends at RIDGID yet.

    The BOSCH DLR-130K is on sale right now at the local tool shop. DLR130K Laser Distance Measurer | Bosch

    The reviews seem positive. Anyone have one of these that you'd care to comment on? Any other models around the same price point that might be a better bet? Sonic versus laser measurement?

    Note: it's important to me that the unit has the capability to add and subtract measurements i.e running around a building adding up lengths of wall for base trim, crown, etc. Can someone please confirm that the unit I've mentioned will do this? Or any other model that does?
