Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handyandy2010 Empire...True Blue levels
I found Empire levels and squares a few years ago. I know when I pull out my True Blue levels my jobs are accurate and correct. Easy to read and use. Light weight and has a strong magnet for hands free metal work. I can appreciate a good tool and I appreciate Empire tools.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToolTimeTony Good general purpose, easy to read level
This two foot blue level is clean looking and functional. The vials are set in contrasting yellow or white color plastic with light blue tinged fluid for ease of reading. There is a view port on the top of the level to allow for easy reading of the vial from either the top or the side of the level. Two foot length is good for an overall utility level – long enough for accuracy, yet short enough to fit easily in a toolbox. Bottom of the level has a continuous magnetic strip built in which allows the level to be supported hands free on metal surfaces. I found the level easy to read under most light conditions, and the blue tinged fluid helps in sunlight. Level matched accuracy of a much longer higher priced level I tested it against. This is a very good general purpose level. One improvement I would like to see would be pitch markings on the center vial.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wxray Hands free if you have metal
I like the 2 ft. size more than anything else. I have an 18", but that's not long enough. My 4 ft. level is too long. 2 ft. is just right. And the bubble is very slippery, which helps find true level quickly.
The magnet works. Unfortunately, I usually am leveling wood (countertops, pictures, door frames, etc.)
Appliance leveling is one application that comes to mind. But be careful, because the magnet can pick up sharp metal shavings and create a scratch mechanism.
The attached photo shows it checking the level of my house's supports. Looks like the builder could have used this level!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cutworm Nice Level
Good quality level that has an added bonus of being magnetic. The Empire levels are also very accurate - about 1/80" over the 24" length. I tested mine and it was perfect. The magnetic strip holds the level well against metal pipes, conduit, etc. freeing up your hands. The level is aluminum and light making it easy to use and the 3 vials are easy to read. If you are looking for a well made level that you can count on to be accurate this level is for you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Termie Expensive but ultra-high quality
I needed a level to mount some towel racks, and used the True Blue level to get the job done. I had used cheap plastic levels in the past, and really wondered what could make a level cost as much as the True Blue product does.
Well, in a word, quality. This is a heavy-duty, professional-looking product. A solid aluminum frame makes it sturdy, rubber ends keep it from being damaged or damaging other objects if dropped, and it can be used in a number of different orientations while remaining very easy to read.
It's also quite a bit longer than the average consumer-grade level, at two-feet. That makes it easier to use where you need to get two objects level that are far apart.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kiki Very nice - works very well
Pleasantly surprised by the quality and looks of this I-Beam Level. I really needed one as I have alot of projects to complete in my house. Now that I have the level, I have been going back and rechecking things I have done and it is helping me a great deal, finalizing some projects and getting things level, the way they should be! I am looking forward to using it with future projects and makes me feel more confident the job will be done right!
The level itself is good size and weight, 24 inches, is also magnetic and it's looks suit both, males and females alike.
Attractive icy-blue color is great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Retired297 True Blue, it's True
Been slowly replacing my old levels with True Blue's and have not taken a second thought about it. True Blue's are little weight, yet solid, easy to read and truly, true. I speak as both a Pro D.I.Y. and retire FAA Repair Man where we used tools accurate to 100th's of an inch. The magnetic holding is firm even upside down. Myself I love the blue color, easy to see and the handles are easy to grip and nicely sized. That rounds out this 24 inch level, simple put, Excellent, design, looks great and easy to use and read.
