You could string out the line where the top of the pavers are gonna be, then place pipes down below (subtract for sand and pavers) and then screed the aggregate with a 2x4 along the pipes. Or use 2x's instead of pipe. Say you need 6" of base for a patio, throw down 2x6's at the proper depyh from the strings and then fill in between them and screed. So if your pavers were 2 3/8 plus one inch of sand get those pipes or 2x's 3 3/8" below the string. That will give you an even base. I am gonna look into getting a laser this year, I've heard its worth the $$$.
