Question about Dewalt Self-Leveling Line Laser Horizontal&Vertical - DW087K

1 Answer

DW087K hello, I bought brand new DW087K. I tried to operate and I was wonder-struck that laser beam thickness is not the same at different distances. For example, I put DW087K 7 m 40cm from the opposite wall, and siwtched on horizontal laser, the thickness of the beam was about 9 mm - 10 mm and the beam was not clear, blur. Is this normal? then I tried to put from the opposite wall at a distance of 2 m. the laser beam thickness was normal about 1 or 2 mm and the laser beam was clear. It was outside, temprature was +10 C, battery indicator was ok. I tried also indoor, distance was 5 meters, but the thickness was about 4-6 mm, and near the DW087k the thickness was ok. Where could be the problem?

DeWalt DW088 wont work wont switch on why

Immediatly go back to your not the way for you but if you are have this problem and read this and if you can in your case replace it in between 8 days do not let repair. go for replace thats the way to handle.

Only thing you can do in this cause is to control your batteries on their dc. 1,4 til 1.6 V
Have allways clean battery contacts

This is one of the cheeper lasers and is designed for predominantly indoor use this Dewalt DW087K unit has a visibility range of 14 yards. Although from experience they do drain the batteries quicker than you would think and cause the laser to be hard to see as well. Hope it works for you!!

Laser won't light

you can have a try below suggestions:
  1. Use new batteries.
  2. Use quality wooden matches. Some low quality matches are very difficult to ignite.
  3. Color the tip of the match black.
  4. Keep you hands steady or use a tripod to ensure a steady beam.
  5. Shorten the distance between our portable laser unit and the match.
  6. Use a lens to further focus the lens (try our convex lens).

My Onkyo DVD/CD Player CP704 plays CD's with no problem, but DVD's are a problem: I get "loading" but does not play and I get "no disc" on many occasions. What gives, any solutions? Thank you.

Laser Beam could be dirty, use disc cleaner or clean the eye beam on the laser pickup but the Laser ickup could also be bad, Mats has them

I have a WRT300N router. I was wondering what the maximum distance that laptop with a WPC300N can be too still get a good signal?

We tested the router’s coverage at different distances and with different obstacles. We measured the signal level in five points:
Point 1: Near the WRT300N
Point 2: At a distance of 4 meters without obstacles
Point 3: At a distance of 5 meters + two thin gypsum wallboards
Point 4: At a distance of 6 meters + one brick wall, about 30cm thick
Point 5: At a distance of 17 meters + one thin gypsum wallboard and one 30cm brick wall
Here are the results...
