This allows you to essentially
have any size level you need while only buying one tool. You
could also make any size straight edge you want or need.
So that’s the theory behind
this little level, but does it work? Well, with a caveat I
have to say that yes, it works quite well. The caveat is
that I had to file mine a little bit to get the L castings
accurate. I did not have to take off much, but I did have to
file a little bit.
I also compared it to a known
accurate level to get it just right. Now it is very accurate
as long as you mount it firmly and correctly on the straight
edge. It is also quite easy to read the level.
I have found a few other uses
for this little guy. For example, it makes a dandy little
pocket level for things like a small shelf.
My favorite use for it however
is to help avoid marital disputes! How in the world can a
little level help your marriage? Have you ever tried to hang
a picture with your wife, and both agree on if the picture
was straight or not? As it turns out using this little level
as a pocket level you can avoid that discussion altogether.
“Hey look honey the picture is straight!”
What I bought as a curiosity
has turned out to be a very nice little tool. While I don’t
end up using it as often as a dedicated level, it is quite
handy to have around at times. Usually these are inexpensive
so if you run across one pick it up, and I think you’ll be
surprised at how useful it can be.
