L-708 Bore Alignment Laser

The L-708 Standard and L-708LD Long Distance Bore Lasers are the latest addition to the bore alignment family of lasers. With the new coarse and fine adjustment capabilities, the L-708 is able to expand the range of adjustment to make setup easier and faster and require less precise fixturing. The L-708LD is a long distance version of the L-708 for applications up to 200 feet (61 m). The L-708 can be used out to 100 feet (30.5 m).

Both lasers have a mounting surface with a 1.2498 in. (31.74 mm) OD. The laser beam is centered to the mounting OD to within .0004 in.(0.010 mm).

High-pitch adjustment knobs adjust the pointing control of the laser beam down to .000007 in./ft. (0.0006 mm/m), so the vertical or horizontal angle of the laser beam can be adjusted to find the center of the reference bore target.

Both lasers will operate for up to 8 hours on a battery pack with standard, replaceable 9-volt cells. An AC adapter is provided for continuous operation.
