    3" & 4" curved and flat dies.

    Problem--- Laying straight edge flat on surface for marking louver grid on 3 piece hood with 2 formed, raised hinges.
    Solution--- Use inexpensive laser level beam to mark the grid. The beam bridges the hinges and is visible on two panels. Move the laser to the other side to mark the third panel.
    It would be possible to mount the laser so that it would project on all 3 panels at once. For now this mounting was faster. 102_2503.JPG 102_2507.JPG
