Curious about laser level? Watch the demo and Learn How To Use Laser Levels. In surveying and construction, the laser level is a control tool consisting of a laser beam projector. The tool is leveled according to the accuracy of the device and projects a fixed red or green beam about the horizontal and/or vertical axis.
A lead screw usually has a longer pitch and smoother surface, resulting in much higher efficiency. Also because of the longer pitch, higher linear speeds are obtained. All you need to know is a lead screw is best for anything non structural. Trade off between Threaded Rod & Lead Screws is cost and availability.
I set out to build my own musical instruments, starting first with a drum made using a pig hide and maple wood. Andy George will discover what it takes to make everything from scratch. His mission is to understand the complex processes of manufacturing that is often taken for granted and do it all himself.
