How to calibrate your own laser level from home : An Industry Secret

How to calibrate your own laser level from home : An Industry Secret.

Every Manufacturer recommends that a laser is calibrated yearly to ensure the most accuracy for your work. A lot of the logic for this is that a laser is constantly taking small impacts which will eventually cause it to come out of calibration, i.e no longer spin level. Where a laser takes a major fall it is also recommended for the same. The Spectra line of lasers are built tough and can withstand a fall of 1.5m on a tripod or 1m freefall onto concrete but enough blowing our own trumpet.

So how do you calibrate your own laser level from home and receive a certificate from a authorised repair center.

The Checklist:

  1. Fist of all you will need to make sure you laser is fully charged or has batteries in it as it needs to be turned on to be calibrated.
  2. You need to ensure you have a case for your laser otherwise it will constantly be in need of calibration, As mentioned earlier knocks and bangs causes a laser to lose calibration so you need to protect your kit. We have a selection of Spectra and Topcon laser level cases available if you require one.
  3. To further emphasize security of your laser you should place your Name and number either on the laser or in the case in the event you have misplaced your laser or it is stolen.

The Tricky Bit:
