This is the first 48 in. level that I have ever owned and I am really happy with it. I tested it for accuracy and it was right on. I find the magnetic strip on the side to be extremely helpful when leveling appliances. I can just put the level on the side of the appliance, make an adjustment, and then quickly check my work without having to handle the level after each adjustment.I also use it as a guide when making long cuts with my circular saw and also for a guide for my router. I know because of the I-Beam construction it will not flex like some edge guides that I have used.
Used it to put up my mailbox pole and it worked perfectly. Will be using it when I make the base for a shed…
Sturdy and lightweight
I I honestly thought it would stick better but it did do the job
I have found this level to be lightweight accurate. It makes an excellent straight edge. The aluminum frame is soft and mine has a number of dings and nicks already. One side is magnetic so it can be attached to metal. However, I have found that the magnet is barely strong enough to hold the weight of the level itself so be careful what you attach it to as it might slip. It is standard size and is easy to read. It only has one hole for hanging it for storage and it would have been nice to put one on the other end as well.
This is on the level. The magnetic 48″ level is sturdy construction with plastic ends to absorb the shock and protect the ends if you happen to drop it. With plastic grips in the center, it has a solid feel to it yet is still light enough to easily carry around. It has a viewport in the top so you can see the center bubble from above. The magnetic strip runs the entire length of the bottom and is strong enough to hold against a solid metal surface. Nice level.
