    Accurate tilt sensors and mag field sensor make the angular calculations very accurately.

    So the technology is there to act as a clivity level.


    So at last there I someone that appreciates there is a problem applying laser technology to the problem I had which there wasn't in my day.

If you want to connect two points on a plane(wall) it is a piece of cake. If however you wanted to find the intersection of a 2D plane with some random thing complex shape you would need to fiddle and create/understand the reference points and set-up/mount the BOSCH just so but when you get it all lined up . . . . VOILA!
    Perhaps yours is this model George http://www.bosch-professional.com/ng...601066g04.html looking at the specs I think I could have utilised that on our problem by setting up say 12" forward/abaft of frame line tilted to the appropriate declivity (there were several for different vessels) panned over setting the top the Bulkhead or whatever, that facility wasn't available in my day.


    Thanks everyone.
