Spent time putting a lot of the Empire levels together and holding them against the florescent lights to see if any light leaked through. All of them had gaps, I brought the flattest one home, used a true flat straight edge and feeler gauge and discovered it was at .001 tolerance and not the .0005 claim in the label. I imagine the other levels I left behind would be worse. Perhaps it's best for the DIY home project where accuracy isn't crucial.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Level for the DIY'er This isn’t your contractor grade level. But is a great valve for the homeowner and DIY'er. I put it against my levels and it was just as accurate. The better levels have the line closer together for a closer reading for plumb and level. The cheaper levels, their lines are wider apart. I have a pic below showing the difference of a cheap level and this level. You'll notice the difference in widths of the level lines. Closer they are the better reading you’ll get and a better quality level.The level bubble not the easiest to see being clear. Yellow bubbles are easire to see and read. This is light weight, the grips are comfortable and levels are somewhat easy to read from top and sides. This is a good quality level just not contractor grade so only 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Straight as arrow light as air.... Outstanding level for this price point! Empire is one of the original level companies and they are still making a great product. The bubbles are easy to read. The tolerance lines are nice and tight compared to most. And best of all the unit is nice and light for a four footer. The end caps may not be heavy rubber but this one has hit the travertine a few times already and is still intact and true. Now be careful your helper doesn't step on it if you want it to stay straight, but that's the weight trade off. At this price I would definitely recommend this level. Now if I could just find straight lumber....
