Laser reflective Tachometer with 9 V Battery – Digital Laser Tachometer with Pouch (2.5~99999.9RPM Range / 0.1RPM Resolution) Reviews

Pros:
This is a very useful tool for any person who works in the construction and design of machines with rotating parts. In my case we are building a combine harvester and I need to know the speed of the different transmissions (belt or chain) to select the size. For lathe speed, drill speed control or even linear movement of wheat cutter bars this is the perfect tool!
Cons:
No CONS- good quality!
Other:
Perhaps the manual should be more detailed in regard of the display readings- it seems the meter can do more than mentioned in the manual. Must check the "hold" or "memory" function.
Bottomline:
Very useful instrument, display is big. Reading of the laser reflective sensor is OK, and precision is OK. Comes in a nice protective pouch with zipper. For this price it's a must have tool for metal working business and machine designers.
