Sears is emailing the Craftsman Club to let us know they’ve got the AccuTrac laser measuring tool on sale for $100 (regularly $120) today. Besides measuring distances without a tape, it includes a recall feature that stores up to ten measurements, and it can calculate square footage and triangular distances internally.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve yet to shell out the dough to try one of these. But while it’s a fun-looking accessory for me, I’d imagine this is pure bread and butter for a carpenter or carpet/tile installer who needs to make estimates quickly and efficiently. This one looks pretty solid, too, though there are some other great models on the market as well.
