Questions & Answers

Can I read slope percentage with this level

Can I read slope percentage with this level
Asked by: Rogger
You can use this level to mark a HORIZONTAL plane but it does not have secondary bubble lines. Most tradesmen use a smaller level they can carry in the tool belt or pocket to figure slope. This level would be far more accurate though. If you were laying drainage pipe you could use this level with the shim method to set the slope of the pipe.

78 in. Aluminum Magnetic I-Beam Level is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 78” Aluminum Magnetic I-Beam Level This 78” aluminum magnetic level has several features that make it a valuable tool for your construction needs. First, it is made from light weight aluminum. Much stronger and more durable than plastic. Next, the plastic end caps adds to that durability by providing shock resistance. Additionally, the 78” length, not often needed for typical household needs, become much more useful when needing to level your work accurately over longer lengths, like across openings during construction when laying out walls. Or, when dealing with lumber that may not be cut true over its length. The level is also magnetic. This will be extremely helpful when working with metallic materials like pipes and steel studs. Finally, this Empire 78” I-beam level has a nice contrast bubble vials that helps with visibility in difficult lighting situations. Although this 78” level will not be my go-to levels for everyday use, it will prove invaluable for the right situation.

This level worked well for my needs, one side is magnetic, great for one person operations working with steel studs. I used this for various task, one of which was resawing some spare 2 x 10s that I had. I did not need them 10" inches long. Instead I was building a workbench and cut them down to the size of 2x4's. I used this level in conjunction with a laser level and a combination square to mark my lines and I cut it with my tracksaw. Having a large level worked great as my work piece was 8' long. I was able to produce a straight , accurate line every time so I am happy. The vials were easily visible so I had no problem ensuring that the workpiece was square and level. I have large hands and I was able to grip it without issues using the openings. The magnetic side had no problem latching to steel when I needed it to. No matter what I find it easier to just keep the magnetic side down towards the work piece, wood or metal, to reduce the chance of it catching something incidentally. I am currently using it while I frame a house
