Answer

Swanson designs their product in house, and company headquarters near Chicago, IL. Then the plans are sent to their factory in China for production, so this Box Beam is made in China. Hope that helps!

Is it 18 inches bumper to bumper? How long is the aluminum portion of the level?

How to read the level

The bubble in between the two lines is level. There is also a button on the end of the level to turn the light on, but you need to remove the little tape to activate the batteries

Over the years I have done home improvements involving varying types of construction in my home (i.e. sheet rock, studs, tiling and wood flooring). I have used several different size and types of levels depending on the job I’m doing. I found this level to be well made and accurate. I tested its accuracy by setting the level in one direction and then flipped it over and upside down and the vial showed the same in all positions. Its aluminum, notched on one side, flat on the other and there's a window on the flat side to allow you to see the horizontal bubble from the top. The best thing is that it has shock absorbing end caps in the event you accidently drop it. It also has two cutouts for your hands to grasp the level while you’re working with it. Quality and functionality make for a great combination.

You need the right tool for the job! This box beam level is 54" long and can handle the big jobs! It has Gelshock end-caps which are exclusive to Savage by Swanson. These end-caps help to protect the level from severe drops. The level is long but not too heavy. It is made of sturdy aluminum (metal) and has two built in rectangular handles built right in for extra easy handling. This is a very nice and durable tool that I am sure will last a very long time.

I would definitely recommend this box beam level for any job big or small that you might need a very accurate level on. I used this one to mark and frame a opening in a shed I was needing to add a small air conditioner to. It allowed me the length to mark a level line where I needed to do framing adjustment and setup for the small AC. The level comes with a markings on the bumble are that allow you to be with in .029 as you can see in the picture of the center area that makes it very readable. Also in the pictures you can see the gelcaps on the endcaps to protect it from droppings. Additionally the two long lengths have antiskid markings on them to prevent slipping on areas. That and it has areas to carry or hold the level with mean they seem to have thought of everything.

Wow. I am impressed with this Swanson 54 in. Professional Box Beam Level with Gelshock End Caps. This is a very heavy duty level. I am sure it will last for many years down the road. The gelshock end caps will have a large input on that. I have had several good levels but they got dropped by mistake and ended up not showing an accurate level after that. The gelshock end cap will prevent that. The acrylic multi-ring block vials are accurate to .029 degrees. The level is precision machined and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Limited lifetime guarantee. This level is worth every penny you pay for it.

Over the years I have owned many levels, especially the older ones owned by family from the 1800s. But never quite a level as this one. When you look at it or handle it reeks with quality and precision. The rubber jell bumper ends give me a better comfort feeling as I have dropped levels while working from a ladder and damaged them enough to make them no longer useable. This is the best made level I have ever owned.

This aluminum 54” level is great. It is very ruggedly built. It has awesome permanent rubber end caps that take the abuse when dropping the level on its ends. It is non magnetic but the sides are very nicely finished with crisp straight edges. The grab handles are nicely formed with rubber grips to help prevent you from dropping it easily. This is a perfect size, it seems like I always need slightly more then 4 feet and this does it. I highly recommend it.

SWANSON 54” PROFESSIIONAL BOX BEAM LEVEL WITH GELSHOCK END CAPS I just got this level in, and it is super nice, heavy duty and great looking with cut- outs for your hands. This appears to be very well made and heavy-duty. This is a precision machine tool. It has diamond bumpers and GelShock end caps. The acrylic multi-ring block vials has 029degree accuracy. I can tell you this is also made approximately 89% stronger savage strength frame. The assembled depth is 1.1” - assembled height is 2.64” - assembled width is 53.94” and the level length is 54.” It is a box beam level and the accuracy is 0.0005” and has 2 vials. It also has a continuous dual frame. You need to check this one out. Go online and type in the internet # 204121209 or the model # SVB540 and see how nice this level really is and read all the details about it. This is a great product that is sure to last for many years to come.

Excellent quality! Heavy duty, good solid construction. Bubble indicators have gradations that make adjustments easy and straight-forward. I like the "rubber" grips that prevent dropping the level because of slick or gloved hands. The "gel-shock" end caps will keep the level true after the inevitable drops. Very pleased and looking forward to a life-time of use.

Swanson 54 in. Professional Box Beam Level with Gelshock End Caps – I already own four Savage Box Beam Levels; 36”, 32”, 24” and 18” and like them for everyday use. They are accurate and sturdy with nicely milled frames. Swanson claims an accuracy of .029 degrees and a test of the level against a digital machinist’s level showed it was accurate at both level and plumb. Swanson also offers to repair or replace, under lifetime limited warranty, any level that loses its accuracy. Each level also comes with their trade-marked “Gelshock” endcaps; a substantial molded silicone “rubber” end that should offer good protection against drops or other jobsite bumps or mishaps. Lastly, they are painted a sort of burnt orange color that helps make them easier to locate on a jobsite.

This is a very nice level
This level is nice, it is very attractive and well built. Milled aluminum, not cast or bent, with the rubber/gel end caps. The handle in the middle is very comfortable in either direction and the bubble is very clear and easy to read. I have many different levels of all shapes and sizes, this brand is becoming my favorite. I fell like they tried to make a product that would stand out from the rest in looks and quality. The bubble itself is constructed to be very accurate, even the slightest tilt is easy to read. This level does not have any magnets. Many levels this size do.
