Best of all tools for my kitchen project
Bought this product to install kitchen cabinets. It is a tremendous investment, can't do without it. The accuracy, self-leveling, cross-line laser features really rocks. The case and tripod are unique accessories (included) that contributes to this value-plus product. This refurbished unit is just like new. Love it.

Laser works fine...
...but the mounting stud that is part of the tripod was bent upon arrival. The CPO people would take no action to resolve the problem, but the folks at Skil kindly sent me a proper tripod. Skil gets five stars, CPO gets three, thus a four star rating.

Wow, what a great tool!
This is the only thing I ever won. It was a Skil contest on Facebook! It came in the mail on Friday, and I already have put it to use. I love the self-leveling feature, it is great! Easy to see laser, even in sunlight. I really like the locking feature, when you don't need or want the self-leveling feature. I wouldn't give it away and you would have to fight me to get it away from me. Worth twice the amount Skil/CPO is asking for it.

One of the most useful tools I own
I have own this level for about a year, used it for hanging dry wall, putting up firring strips. Currently using it to grade dirt and setting forms for concrete. You will find more uses for this tool. Really nice when working by yourself.

A must for kitchen cabinet installations
This product worked great. I have done a few cabinet installations in the past and will never do another one without this product. What a time saver!! This laser is very accurate which is a must for granite counter top prep. I think this product is worth much more than I paid.

Can't be beat for the price
I use this level for putting up shelves in my shop and for cabnets in the home. I find it is very accurate and simple to use. Since it levels itself setup is a breeze.

Excellent, Makes life a lot easier
Excellent for lining up ceiling tile, walls, Pictures, molding and Kitchen Cabinets. Saved me a lot of time using it to set kitchen cabinets level as well as char rail. Works great for lining up new walls as well, set your start and end points on the floor and transfer them to the ceiling. I also use it for hanging and leveling long shelves. You can also use it to make sure new interior door casings are level, as well as windows and their height are the same on each wall. This is a real time saver all the way around, home or work I use it several times a week and wouldn't be caught without it. Works great for inside usage, bright clean and clear lines.

AMAZING
I am an avid DIY'er, and this last level makes my jobs go so much faster. My first project with the laser was a loft storage unit in my garage. I even double checked it with my level and it was spot on. Great buy for the price and I will be using it for everything around the house.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
