This Laser Center/Edge Finder projects a series of concentric rings, making it easy to center over an existing hole. See the pattern on the Chris' Tips tab.
The Laser Center/Edge Finder projects a fine laser beam that directly indicates the edge of the workpiece. Move the beam to the edge of the work and set your dial to zero. It is that easy. No more calculating half the diameter of the edge finder.
You can also use the Laser Center/Edge Finder to locate scribed or center-punched locations. Simply move the laser beam to the location on the workpiece and the spindle is aligned.
The Laser Center/Edge Finder is easy to align so you can be sure it is always accurate.
The batteries last for over 3 hours of continuous operation. That's 6 months to a year of normal use.
It now has a more powerful laser module. In addition, the Laser Center/Edge Finder now includes a polarizing attachment, which used to be sold separately. With this combination, it is usable from 1" to 12" from the work surface. Rotate the polarizing attachment to adjust the dot size to as fine a dot as you like.
How fine a dot can you make? As fine as frog's hair (so fine you can't see it). To obtain the smallest dot size for your most precision work, try coating the material with Blue Dykem. This coating will absorb a bit of the laser dot making it appear smaller.
Don't order a laser edge and center finder if you live in Finland. We cannot ship laser devices to Finland.
Tip: If you need batteries for one of our Laser Edge and Center Finders, don't waste money on silver oxide batteries. Testing has shown that they work just as long on alkaline batteries.
