Questions & Answers

Will this serve as good straight edge for a saw / router guide?

Yes

my original warranty said if the level is not accurate any more for warranty i return to place of purchase is that still true?

level is not damaged just not accurate
Asked by: carpenter
The warranty can be processed by the place of purchase or you can contact Empire via Email or phone and they will pay freight to have the level sent back to them. Going direct will probably be faster and easier to track progress. You must have your proof of purchase included with the level for them to process the warranty. I have never warrantied anything through Empire so i am not sure how fast or easy this will be.

I really like the shock resistant bumper and the magnetic features of this level. I try to keep my levels out of the way when not using them as to not knock them out of square and the magnets help with that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Level for a Great Price You will not find a better level on the market, especially at this price point. Even though this level is 78" long, it is not heavy and is very easy to carry due to it's light weight steel I-beam construction and comfortable hand grips. This level also features a full length magnetic strip. The magnetic strip offers strong adherence to metal surfaces, but not to the point that it makes it difficult to remove it. The level is super accurate and comes with three vial readings (2 for plumb and 1 for level). Each of the windows is extremely easy to read, which is aided by the blue bands that highlight the edges of the bubbles. Additionally the level vial has a top read window for added convenience. This 78" level is great for a variety of projects such as hanging doors and checking a subfloor as you prep for laying tile. You can also use it as a straight edge for ripping down sheets of plywood. This is my third Empire level and I can validate that they make a good quality tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for What I Needed I have larger levels, but I just wanted something small and portable for quick tasks and this fit the bill nicely. It's lightweight but feels sturdy and the magnetic strip is a nice addition, I haven't had a level with one before. There's nothing crazy innovative about it, it's a standard level. The gauges are easy to see and it's a good design overall. I tested it against items and my other levels and it's accurate. The magnetic strip worked very well. It's not a super magnet or anything, but you wouldn't want that anyway. Instead it firmly holds the level in place on the metal object, and pulls off easily when you grab the handle in the middle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good 24" beam level The Empire True blue level is a handy 24" level that with the built-in magnet along the beam that makes it perfect for setting metal studs and metal skin doors. The hand-hold on the level is comfortable - not hard as the bare edge of the aluminum. The magnetic strip is not terrible strong - works well enough to hold the level on vertical surfaces, but not so strong that you are picking up everything metal out of your tool box. I found running a strip of 1" blue painters tape along the magnet - helps keep the magnet clean by simply pulling the tape off - but the magnet will still hold nearly as strong. The only complaint I have is the level vial fluid is blue and so are the lines on the vials. Unlike the yellow fluid and black lines - a contrast in the colors. It makes it hard not see the divide of the bubble between the lines. Other than that I really like the level.
