A:  Level accuracy of +/- 0.0015in/in. (0.15 mm/m) accuracy is the tolerance between what is measure and the level and so is straightness tolerance is the distance between the lines leveled.

    A:  Super question, Russ. I had to go out to the garage and look for myself. It does NOT have measurements on both sides.

    Answer This Question

    A:  The Stanley may have been out of stock at the manufacture. As far reaching as the Pandemic has been and is being on both retailers, suppliers, manufactures, and sub contractors and their suppliers, it is of little surprise that anyone in the supply chain could throw a glitch in the process of timely delivery of a product. It looks as if Home Depot or Stanley substituted the "equivalent or better" of the level that they had in stock and available within a reasonable delivery time. Until the Pandemic lets up and people (worldwide) get back to work on near normal schedules this is something I fear we will all have to contend with and get accustomed to.

    Answer This Question

    A:  CV, I'm just a HD customer but they sent your question to me, and as a retired engineer I'd say that it's just a misplaced or misprinted decimal place on the 0.15mm/m ie. 0.0059"/39.37" spec. That seems to be a really tight tolerance on a aluminum construction level.

    Great Features
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 11/06/2019 I am reviewing the Stanley 48” I-Beam Level 180, 42-328. The level is a common tool for trades and homeowners alike. This level is somewhat different as it is made of non-magnetic aluminum that is powder coated bright yellow in color. The level is very sturdy and easy to use. Measuring 48” long, the level includes 3 bubble vials, one rotating. All three vials measure accurately and read clearly. One side of the level includes a window for viewing the middle bubble vial. Also, one side of the level also includes a measuring scale which is divided by inches and centimeters. A lightweight tool, this level is easily carried with the 2 integrated grips or hung from the handy hook space at either end. • Rigid I-beam cross-section features low-profile, shock-absorbing end caps for durability • 180-degree rotating view for a range of situations • Measuring scale printed directly on the level eases layout work • Powder-coated frame withstands nicks and offers a comfortable hold. Clear-acrylic vial covers for easy readability • Limited Lifetime Warranty • Rigid I-beam cross-section features low-profile, shock-absorbing end caps for durability • 180-degree rotating view for a range of situations All in all a great tool for any shop or job site.

      Love This Level!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great for transferring angles on drywall without extra measurements, nice and light in my hands compared to my FatMax 4 foot level. Love the adjustable vial on this level as it saves me time on the job! Stanley has always made a good product and I will continue to use them!

        Perfect affordable level for most folks
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I use levels a lot; from small torpedo style to 8 foot levels (a lot less often) but the level I pick up most often is a 4ft. This level has good features that make it a great choice for everyday use. It isn't expensive but it is metal; you can measure out of plumb with the rotating dial on one end, and there's a cut out to look down on the level when you're measuring whether a surface is level or not. I've added some photos to show these features as well as an unlikely use of the angle dial (measuring the approximate lean of a tree).

          Solid Built with great features
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Stanley 48 inch I-Beam 180 level is a solid built level that appears to be an extruded aluminum I-Beam shape with plastic end caps making it strong and lite weight. It is light in weight with fixed parallel and perpendicular fluid-filled levels as well as a third adjustable level. The adjustable level can rotate 180 degrees to get whatever angle is needed. This level is great for roof or stair-rail construction when needing a certain angle and or parallelism to another lower or upper piece is necessary. For long plumbing runs the level can be an easy check for plumb fall if you do not feel comfortable with reading the additional site line marks on the level for percent angle drop. The center Parallel level has a top reading window for an easy view from the top or side. The Top of the beam also has ruled markings both in inches and metric with the scales starting with Zero at the center of the beam and increasing towards the ends. The Plastic cap gives some inaccuracy to ends and the overall length of the Level. The end from the 23-inch mark varies from 1.03” to 1.05” making the overall length of the level 48” and 1/16” long, so if you want to use it in something that is exactly 48” it won’t fit. The level is a useful level for door install, roofing, and several other level applications and with the added benefit of an adjustable level vial you can also get a close read on existing levels of item and oddly angled work. This is a welcomed addition to my toolbox. This will replace an older plastic level I have used for years and should give me more accuracy as well as more useful features for years to come.

            Lightweight and Practical
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Stanley I-Beam Level is lightweight, vials easy to read and a value add to anyone's tool collection. Recently added two shelves to a hall closet and this level proved to be an asset during the build process. Liked the added measuring scale!

              Strong, Lightweight & Easy To Read Great Features
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The 48 in. I-Beam 180™ Level is easy to read, strong & lightweight which makes it perfect for every project. The measurement marking are clear & vibrant - easy to ready. The rotating vial is pretty unique, gives you the ability to measure in all kinds of situations. We're getting ready to replace a few windows and trim, so I'll be using this level a lot. I gave this 5 STARS because it's that good!

                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really appreciate Stanley giving me a chance to test the products. I just received my level today. And will post another review tomorrow after using it.

                  Very nice level
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This level has many useful features. I love the 180 degree rotating vial it makes matching a existing angle so much easier. Also the inch and centimeter ruler imprinted on the level also saves time. I run a lot of pipe and v grove is very helpful. All these features along with light weight and economical price make this a really great choice. Very happy with this 4 foot level.

                    Great Price!!
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This level is very durable and at a very reasonable price. I build and install cabinets of all types and this level is one of my most used primary tools whether I'm in my shop or out on a job installing cabinets. I put this level through a lot of abuse such as getting tossed around in the back of my truck or falling over in the shop and it's still accurate and straight.

                      This 48 inch level works great! It is super light weight which makes it very easy if you are holding it up to a wall to make a level line. The extra smooth finish is also nice for making your line true and straight. I did not realize how much I would use the ruler until I started using this level. It is perfectly straight, obviously, so it gets the job done. I would not use this for a job site however, it is very lightweight and seems like it could be easily damaged.
