Empire Blue 9in. Heavy-Duty Magnetic Aluminum Torpedo Level, Model# em81.9
Nice little level
I've had mine for a couple years now and I am pretty happy with it. I'm not going to lie, it feels a little cheap , however, it is well made with a mix of aluminium and heavy plastic. Mine still reads the same when you put it down on something, flip it 180 and it reads the same, as does it when you lay it on it's side. It's compact, light, and fits nicely in a pocket. The magnet is fairly strong "strip" magnet that covers all but the end caps. Oposite from the magnet is a "V" groove that run's the lenth of the level. In the center of the "V" goove is a little window so you can see the bubble from above. And now to the best part of this level: the "TruBlue" vial's! Now, some of my friends along with other reviews I have read say that the blue vials are hard to read, IMHO, in low light, yes. In normal light though, they are great, easy on the eyes. I also have their 24" & 48" box beam levels and I am very satisfied with all 3. Sure they are not Stabila's, but I can't see spending twice as much money when these are also guaranteed acurate to 0.0005"

A must have
This level is great. I own 3 of them. They are so cheap and such a nice tool it is easier to own more than one. I alway have one in my tool belt.
