Review Summary

The tool I recieved worked great for my stair remodeling project. Due to the nature of some of my measurements, I could not get an exact measurement, but it got me close enough that it saved me a bunch of time. Most of the time I could set the CMS to the reading and it was "Good enough for the girls we go out with," as my former supervisor used to say. I love the tool, but...I have one problem, complaint. It is supposed to have an Auto shut off feature.
Three times now, after a week or two of not using the tool, the battery is dead when I try to use it. A new battery brings it to life. I guess removing the battery would be the solution, but a pain. I am going to be checking with the manufacturer to see if this is a unique problem with my tool. If not for this problem, I would give it a solid 5 star rating.
