Using laser for marking electrical boxes
Guys I had a theory on cutting holes in the right spot when your drywalling a shop .
I do have a magnetic system that works , but I’m wondering why I never thought of using my tile laser to mark the spot where to cut .
I’m going to use 3/4” plywood on two of my walls , and I’d prefer not to make a mistake when cutting out the outlets .
What I’d like to try is what you see in the first pic . The laser level sits on its tripod and you set it up till it indicates the horizontal and vertical positions of the outlet .
I’ll hold the plywood in position and then air nail a jig for my router to follow .
I used my magnetic system on mdf in my gym , and I got super accurate holes with my router .
It may be a slower process , but it’s not by the hour . Btw I’m familiar with the lipstick and carbon paper route
I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
