I placed this on the ground and was shocked to find the earth was flat. Like all milwaukee tools this exceded my expectations. Its enlarged bubble makes for easy reading.
The milwaukee 59 inch redstick magnetic box level is a top of the line level. It is costly,but well worth the extra money. I have many levels for my work and love quality tools. This level has very strong earth magnets to hold strong. The level has a all-metal back bone that gives it weight and a nice feel. I found the 59 in. length to be helpful over a 48 in. level in some cases. It is a very solid level.
Man these Milwaukee redstick levels are plain and simple high quality, stout levels. Then again I have never used a bad Milwaukee tool. I am a huge fan of levels. Its just that simple tool in the shop or on a job site, in which the use of one can make the finish product a sight to see or a complete disaster. This magnetic base 24″ level is the perfect size for all around use. This level is heavier than your typical levels, which is a good thing. Milwaukee aimed at making a more robust level that could handle the riggers of the job site, handle more weight with out bending or warping, and remain dead on accurate for its lifetime. In fact dead on accuracy with these levels for their life time is part of Milwaukee guarantee. Now these redstick levels will cost you a bit more than the average level you see hanging in your local hardware store or home improvement center, but they are oh so worth it. The magnets are really strong. The level is flat to with in .0005″ on both surfaces, so it can be trusted as a straight edge. I placed the level on the flattest machine surface that I have. Which is is my cast iron table saw top. Took the thinnest feeler gauge that I have which was .004″ and tried to insert it under the table saw at every point and there was not enough room to get the feeler gauge under the saw. This level is dead flat The vile are large and true to Milwaukee claim. They really are much easier to read. I I just really like these levels and they will become the new primary use levels in my wood shop. The others I am currently using in my shop will be downgraded to more messy work like laying tile, cement, and glue ups. Id highly recommend these levels to anyone in the market for a box level. You wont regret spending the extra bucks on this type of quality.
I am upgrading my box level tools and decided to obtain the new Milwaukee 59 in. Redstick Magnetic Box Level. The first thing noticeable with this box level is the easy-to-read bubble vials. It’s an all metal (aluminum) backbone, so there’s no weak plastic parts. It also has strong magnets that hold the level firmly on a metal surface without support. After using the Milwaukee 59 in. Magnetic Redstick Level for several weeks I am very impressed with it’s quality, accuracy and ease of use. The vials on the Milwaukee 59 in. Magnetic Redstick Level are amplified 2x and have an acrylic protective surface for easy cleaning. The level is milled to 0.029 degrees accuracy and comes with a lifetime warranty. Highly recommended for contractors or anyone needing a high quality box level.
This is a 4 foot long box level that has magnets built in. The magnets are used for holding the level up to steel surfaces. There are three easy to read vials and two cut outs to use as handles. The cut outs have a protective material to keep you from cutting your hand. The level is made of aluminum and has black rubber ends to protect the level in case of a fall.The level is painted red and has a durable crinkle finish – like on a Ferrari valve cover!The level is straight as an arrow! It’s very strong and I didn’t see any flex when supporting it on only one end. This is a lifetime tool – the best made level I have owned.I give it five stars. This is the best of the best.
We do a lot of metal work on buildings, restoring brick and stone, among other things. This level is awesome. It is large so it works great on the big jobs where the shorter levels just don’t cut it. I don’t mind the price, because the warranty, quality, durability, etc is well worth it. Milwaukee always stands beside their products and their products are worthy of a great review. This level is very easy to see and read. I would recommend the shorter levels for smaller projects as this length is very awkward on a smaller scale. The magnetic helps hold it in place while you make adjustments and can also help pick up scattered screws, bolts, etc. Milwaukee makes their products really durable and sturdy with high quality materials and excellent accuracy.
Having my own construction business, rather than state the specs that are already stated in the advertisement, what better way to test this 59 inch Milwaukee box level than to let my guys test it over a period of two weeks? Their final resulting analysis ranged from very good to excellent. Two of the guys thought it too heavy (and both of them are big strapping men) The other six said it was good to hold and did not find it was too heavy (and not one of these guys weighs over 180 Lbs”¦.go figure) All of them agreed that this box level is so accurate as to put their own levels to shame as none of them have a unique tolerance of 5000th of an inch per inch of the item being tested. Having the three USA made vials made this level super easy to use and be confident and having the 3 times magnification on each vial’s, made for easy reading. As well as being accurate, all agreed that it is very easy and safe to hold on to while in use (yep, even the big muscular guys that say it’s too heavy) It is a very durable level and just as well as these guys are not known to me as anything but a `little careless` at times with using tools. However, after 10 working days, other than a few small scratches and dusty, the box level is as good as new.I am so impressed with this, that I have bought another two to use on the working site. Do I recommend this? Absolutely.
I own a numerous levels from several different manufacturers. Milwaukee’s entry into the market is bold and quite a solid offering. I’m impressed with the overall feel of the level and it’s fit and finish. One distinguishing feature is the overbuilt spirit vial, which is much more sturdy that those even from the top of the line manufacturers. That only really makes a difference if it takes a direct hit, which isn’t that common, but it’s nice to have. The bubble is large and the vials are set up such that they’re very easy to read.I lined it up with my yellow reference level and the readings were spot-on. I compared flipped and rotated the level to check for parallel and consistency and it was spot-on. That’s good because if a level fails that test then it’s not much good.The level is a little thicker and wider than many other levels. This is a bit of a mixed bag as it feels chunkier. That probably means it will last a bit longer but it also means it’s heavier and takes a little more effort to use.My only beef with this level is that it’s coming in at the top end of the price range for levels. I haven’t seen anything on it to justify that price point and it’s unclear if these will hold up over time like the best of breed. I would really like to see this come in somewhere lower in the market.
The magnetic box level is encased with metal I think to increase durability of such a long level. It’s also easily portable with the molded hand grips and can be hung on the wall to maximize storage. Leveling additional closet shelving and countertop were easier with this length because it covered the length of the desired area; likewise the level gauges were quite visible enabling more precise measurement.
The Redstick Line of levels offered by Milwaukee is definitely, the top of the line. From the metal inner core to the aluminum milled outer, this thing is built tough. The rubberized end caps are removable, if it matters. The rare earth magnets are incredibly strong, in fact I store it attached to one of my metal cabinets and can open and close the door and it doesn’t move. For these old eyes the high contrast vials,of which there are two, make reading easy. The accuracy is some of the best in the industry. It has a hang hole. Once again Milwaukee has designed a tool that will a last me.
