Measures the rotational speed with a visible red light beam from a powerful LED. It is a great tool to measure the RPM of motors and machine parts. In wood and metal working it can be used to accurately measure the speed of a lathe or milling machine. Can be used for HVAC applications in measuring fan speed. Detection distance up to 6 feet. Highly accurate, digital laser photo tachometer. To take the measurement, apply a reflective mark (included in package) onto the target object, aim the laser beam at the mark, the RPM displays on the LCD screen. Powered by 1 x 9V Battery (not included). Size : 180 x 72 x 37 mm(7.0 x 2.8 x 1.5 inch).

A NO BRAINER I needed a tach to verify the RPM on a chipper engine that I had recently made some governor repairs on. This little inexpensive jewel did the trick and has since been used to register all the speeds of my vintage wood lathe. Professional photo tachometers can cost hundreds of dollars and really can’t do a better job. The product is simple to use and well made, so if you have some RPM’s to check, then go for this unit. It comes with reflective tape that you apply a small piece of to the shaft/hub or pulley of the device being checked, start the device, point the laser at the reflective tape while holding the test button down and the RPM reads direct. The seller of this unit at storefront was also prompt with the order and it actually arrived ahead of schedule, so for twenty one dollars and change, you would be hard pressed to find a better deal!

Neat little tool. This handheld laser tach works great. I used it on an outboard motor that could not support a standard tach. The only issue I had was that it did not work outdoors in direct sunlight. As the sun dropped down, then it was able to “see” the reflector and read the rpm’s. Indoors it works perfectly. Aside from the sunlight issue this is a neat little tool.
