Chain Alignment Laser.

#1 Post by Smithers » Wed May 01, 2019 4:55 pm

I took delivery of this little gem of a tool today, It came from Germany. Once placed on face of the rear sprocket (cleaned); it will project a continuous laser line along the length of the chain. This will show up any deviation in alignment and allow you to adjust the rear wheel accordingly. I had access to long parallels in the past, but this bit of kit is even better. I didn't like the 'laser monkey' (Halfords) as that just gave a single spot which you have to physically move by hand on a very flimsy plastic bracket to check deviation.

It does Belts and chains.
PS don't take any notice of 'Last One', all their products are listed like that.

Used on of these for over 10 years now, batteries from pound shop work well. would recommend, mine came in a nice small blue zip bag. works in daylight but a lot easier at dusk or in shed.
