$180.00 – $185.00
For those that are not quite ready for the Visualizer the Laser Bars are a great way to help you judge your wall thickness. This set comes complete with everything you need (Laser is included). Including a way to mount it on either your 5/8″ or 3/4″ Stabilizer, a 5/32″ Super Allen Wrench, and one of our laser bar wall thickness gauges. If you do upgrade to the Visualizer eventually the bars are compatible with the Visualizer.
If you plan on using the laser bars with my 1″ tools, you will need to order the Extra Long Bar. The extra long bar is unnecessary for most hollowing, and is only recommended if you plan on using 1″ tools.

Very easy to set up and the micro adjustments on the laser itself allow the arms to stay put when changing cutter positions. This is a quality set up.

I wish I had not waited so long to purchase it!

Works like a champ .. very nice

I replaced a cheaper version of the laser bar bought from another source. No comparison. This is by far and away a more robust and well built tool (typical of Trent Bosch). I love the micro adjustment feature and the fact you can change the cutting tool without removing the laser bar from the stabilizer tool rest. My old laser bar was attached to the cutting tool as opposed to the stabilizer tool rest. My only negative is that the micro adjuster tool which works well, is a bit flimsy compared to everything else in the system.

Had some problems with the laser not working. I emailed them and the sent me a new laser to replace the one that was not working. Very quick to respond. Since I got the new one it is working perfectly.

Works well. It take fiddling time to correctly adjust the laser correctly. I had to frequently readjust the laser to the tool head for cutting different parts of the hollow form. Somewhat unexpected but it makes sense.

I finally got around to using these tools and turned a hollow form and was really happy with how it turned out. It was my first hollow form and the combination of the video, the stabilizer, and the hollowing tools really helped me to learn and hit the ground running.
The tools really cut well and are easy to sharpen. The stabilizer is easy to set up and put into practice. It felt like learning to hollow with training wheels. I used the laser toward the end in steps 5 and 6 produce a consistent thickness throughout the hollow form without going through the wall.
The one thing that would have been nice would have been to receive additional instruction for the laser. The video only covered the Visualizer

The laser bar works amazing, keeps its direction on point. Doesn’t skip around with minor vibration at all.

This was a very welcome Christmas gift. I have used the laser bars for two hollow forms with great results. It was easy to install the first time and I found that I had the bars installed and ready to turn in about 3 minutes for the second project. I also discovered that no realignment was needed when I changed from the straight to the curved cutting tool. Great engineering and fore thought by Trent.

Works well. The laser can be a little finicky and need to fiddle with the battery cover knob every now and then to get it powered on. A powered laser would be preferred.

Works great and easy to install and use.

Nice, distinct laser. Easy adjustments. Excellent indication of where you are cutting inside
Jamie Sussen (verified owner) –
great laser system.

I love the laser with its adjustment screws. The template really makes adjusting the laser easy. I did some set screws with knurled knobs to make set up easier.
The laser is very bright, that is a good thing. Because the laser is bright the batteries drain faster than I would like.
Over all this is a great product. Since I have started using it I have a much better feel for where my tool tip is inside the vessel. My bottoms are much liter.

This is the first laser I have tried with a hollowing system. Very easy to set up and is a huge help in getting a uniform thickness on my hollow forms.

Very well made and works perfect

I’m hollowing with much more confidence. This device was very easy to set up and use. Everything Trent produces is top notch!
Michael (verified owner) –
Great addition to the stabilizer; now I don’t have to guess about the wall thickness. Very easy to set up and adjust.

Another great product from TB. Easy to set up and use and made frrom quality material and provides and excellent intergration with the Stabilizer System I previously purchased

So far so good!

Please see my rating and review of the 3/4″ stabilizer.This was purchased as a complete set for my Laguna 1836 lathe.
