To move to within an inch or so and to the datum point just has to be a LOT easier and faster with the Laser Pointer.

I am liking that.

Thank you very much.

Greetings from germany

The size of the spot can be adjusted. I would guess I have mine at about .005" diameter. The small size is dim. It gets brighter if I make it larger. The spot does not move when I rotate the router. There are screws to adjust it if it gets out of adjustment. Of course this assumes the router chuck itself is free from significant runnout. (I say "significant", because no machine is absolutely perfect.)

Thank you Mike! I will add such a laser to my equipment :D
