Laser Precision Pointer

Description: This handy tool is a must-have in the QBOT V3 quilting studio. Simply attach the laser and battery pack to the front of the sewing machine aimed at a point within a few inches of the needle. In the QBOT V3 app, use the laser offset feature and you're ready to select your boundary points with exacting precision.

Available in 2 cord lengths, 14" and 48" (shorter requires the battery pack to be in close proximity to the laser; mounting location determines cord length needed).

The 2-battery pack option is highly recommended for commercial/professional QBOT'll always have one charged and ready. Typical battery charge is 24 hours of use. Shipments to non-USA addresses may incur additional shipping charges, processed separately.
