    ^^^^ This. Absolutely need to measure over a greater distance. Good call.

    Right, Leo! As a construction electrician of 45 years experience I can say that checking a level's accuracy in the store was one of the first things I was taught as an apprentice. Set it on a surface, check the location of the bubble, then swap it 180. If the bubble is in the same spot, it is a good level. If the bubble was initially off center to the left, but is now off to the right, the level is no good.

    Last time I bought a level I had to go through more than a dozen before I found one that was accurate on all bubbles. Thirty years ago the better quality levels were often built so the user could adjust the bubble for accuracy.
    Cheers!

    Well, well, well - how long has it been since I ordered (then bought) one of these? Too long! So guess what turned up on my door step?

    CORRECT, the "originally ordered "level", despite my telling frickin' UPS to send it back to micro mark IF they found it.

    Bottom line - now I have two of the things. Sooo, if anyone is in the market for one, let me know and it'll be yours for a little less than what I paid for it.
    Cheers Tony

    Moose no know if could use one, but Moose gotta ask...

    Moose,

    The level was $44.95 from Micro Mark plus $8.95 for shipping to me so a total of $53.90. I'd be happy with a round $45 including shipping though.

    PS: It is still in the box it was shipped in along with all the typical paraphernalia.
    Cheers Tony

    Moose,

    Hmm - thought I'd already replied to this - oh well ... no problem mate and yeah, they're NOT cheap by any means, especially direct from micro mark.
