Amazon is offering the Bosch Compact Blaze Laser Distance Measure (GLM 20) for $29.97 shipped. Note: Stock is running slightly low, but you can still order now and lock in the discounted price. Normally $50, and still going for as much at Home Depot, this is a new all-time low that we’ve tracked historically and is the best available. This laser measure is perfect for constructing patios, decks, or sheds as it will allow you to get an accurate measurement without the hassle of a measuring tape. Plus, it reaches 65 feet with just a single person, making it simple to build just about any structure. Rated 4.7/5 stars.
