Innovation. Compact Size. Speed. Simplicity. These are the concepts behind the new Bosch Blaze line of tools. The goal is to create tools that make life easier through their compact size, speed of operation, and reduced learning curve. First up in this line is the new Bosch Blaze GLM 20 Laser Measure.
The GLM 20 builds on the foundation of the outstandingly simple and accurate Bosch GLM 15 Laser Measure. Of course with the new branding and new model number, we expect some upgrades – and there are several.
One of the most useful is the new backlit screen. The GLM 20 boosts the range from 50 feet up to 65. Bosch simplified this model for the US by giving users an inches only setting in addition to feet and inches. The metric measurements are there as well.
What’s stayed the same is the accuracy at 1/8 inch and the price at $49. It’s not often you get an upgrade that doesn’t come with a price increase. The Bosch GLM 20 Laser Measure also still features the simple one-button operation we loved in the original model.
“Our goal is to utilize our exclusive technology and user-need understanding in the Bosch BLAZE laser measure line.

This simple measuring tool is fantastic for quick measurements and estimates. Managing Editor, Kenny Koehler, tells me that he’s amazed how often he goes to the simple one-button function over tape measures and more complex measuring devices.
