Favorite/Most Used Levels

Recommended Posts

As the title states, what is your favorite and/or most used level?  This thread is intended to primarily discuss spirit levels, but feel free to bring up any other style if you use that kind almost exclusively.  Length, brand, type; I'm interested to hear what you use and/or prefer.

 

I have a number of levels but find myself using 24" and 48" box or beam levels most of the time.  Lowe's decision to clear out Fatmax levels a couple of years ago resulted in my acquisition of lengths up to 96", but to be honest I've yet to use any of those.

 

As for brand, I like Empire's US manufacture at an outstanding price (particularly during the holiday sales), but my Fatmax levels tend to be my standbys.  

 

Finally, as an aside, I just bought another 2 pack of the Empire torpedo levels.  At $5 apiece you can't go wrong, and I find them to be perfect for versatile magnets to stick on the fridge, entry doors, or elsewhere.

I like my Dewalt. Box levels. 24, 48, 78.

Magnetic makes it easy on hinge side door jambs and steel gate kits, and magnified vials makes them easy to read.

I don't own any levels yet but the level at work that gets used the most is probably an Empire. It is maybe around 6 foot. I try to grab our Stabila's when I get the chance because I trust their measurements more than any of our other levels but the other guys tend to favor the Empires. I wouldn't mind getting a Stabila but they can get pricey.
