In the work that I do, precision has always been key. From guarding my QB trying to hit a receiver 40 yards down the field to making the right cut on a pricey live edge slab, I’ve had my fair share of slip-ups and close calls along the way.
In woodworking, there are a lot of forgiving moments — but the cuts that DO matter require some serious precision for the sake of time, materials, budget, and (on occasion) safety. That’s why it’s important for me to use tools that put precision at the forefront of the operation.
I was super jazzed when the Home Depot reached out to me and asked me to try out the BOSCH BLAZE 135ft. Laser Measurer with Full Color Display. This pocket-sized laser measurer is the perfect tool for maintaining speed and precision when I’m tackling a number of projects around the house and in the workshop. Check out everything you need to know about this bad boy below and let me know what you think!

Do you ever use a tool and instantly realize that it’s created and envisioned by a bunch of yuppies who crunch numbers for a living? There’s a clear difference between those types of tools and the tools made by the makers, for the makers. The BOSCH BLAZE 135ft. Laser Measurer with Full Color Display is one of the tools that speak directly to the challenges that builders like myself encounter every day.
The problem with a number of laser measurers is that they lack the high-quality display necessary for getting fast, accurate readings. The BOSCH BLAZE 135ft. Laser Measurer with Full Color Display is made with a bright, full-color display that makes it easy to read while getting wall-to-wall measurements during home projects or getting the right cut for flooring or a mantle. The illumination allows you to work in low-light areas with high resolution and even save up to 20 measurements for fast, efficient measurement.
On top of an easy-to-read display, the BOSCH BLAZE 135ft. Laser Measurer with Full Color Display is made for one-person operation. While I luckily have my buddy Sam by my side during most projects, not everyone is so lucky to have an extra pair of hands with them throughout the day. The Bosch laser measurer is compact with an easy-to-use display guide that puts me in full control of the task, allowing me to measure up to 135 ft. even when Sam isn’t around. It auto-calculates area and volume too, making it the perfect fast and accurate tool for anyone finding themselves in need of precise measurements during their projects.
Here’s the thing. If you’re purchasing a laser measurer, you probably take a number of criteria into account while making your choice. You want precision. You want a measurer that can go the distance. You want value.
As someone who was once bumming tools off friends and neighbors to get the job done, I don’t take for granted having the right tools by my side to get the job done. The BOSCH BLAZE 135ft. Laser Measurer with Full Color Display is perfect for my purposes as a builder because it gives me plenty of measuring distance, is super easy to use, and covers all of the bases for my purposes. Bosch has similar measurers available that reach more than 800 ft., but for most uses this 135 ft. measurer is perfect.
The BOSCH BLAZE 135ft. Laser Measurer with Full Color Display brings the right features to the table to make a great, versatile laser measurer. Not only is 135 ft of measuring distance plenty for my purposes, but knowing that I have the precision I need to get the job done is so important to me. Additionally, I like knowing that my tools are made for guys like me — a builder who don’t need crazy frills and buttons to fuss with. The BOSCH BLAZE 135ft. Laser Measurer with Full Color Display has a simple interface, intuitive features, and makes my job easier — the perfect addition to any shop or toolbox.
