Another fantastic Milwaukee product. I recently bought a 4 foot level, which I thought was a pretty good one. I won’t mention the brand other that it”s the blue one. Now don’t get me wrong the blue ones are good levels too. But when I received the Milwaukee level, there’s no comparison. This is heavy duty thick nicely honed edges. The bubbles are big and easy to see. The magnet is strong. Just a great level that will out live me. Highly recommended. This is actually the review I wrote for the 24 inch level they are both fantastic no matter what size.
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.
With their acquisition of Empire Level, a company that has almost 100 years of experience with manufacturing high-quality levels, Milwaukee has really dove into the market. These new contractor-grade RedStick levels are built to the extreme, designed to compete directly with the Stabila levels that are very popular with carpenters and builders.These levels are built to the extreme, made to handle daily professional use, and the sometimes accidental abuse that happens on the job site. They are claimed to be “stronger than Stabila” with their all-metal inner-structural backbone and 10x more durable vials. The vials themselves are made in the USA. The levels have an accuracy tolerance of 0.029 degrees, or 0.0005 inches per inch, which is pretty much the industry standard in the high-end level market. The level carries a lifetime accuracy guarantee, as well as an overall limited lifetime warranty.I’ve been using it on sites over the last couple of weeks, and every tradesmen that I’ve showed it to has been impressed. The level is obviously very stout, the machining and overall fit and finish are excellent. The rare earth magnets hold the level firmly. The vials are very easy to read, and appear to be very durable.
The reviews are correct – strong, built and V E R Y easy to read. I am a steel stud framer and would very much recommend any one working with metal to get this or any Red stick. 59″ might be a odd dia. none the less a 4′ too small for 10′ plus walls a 6′ too long. Perfect for what I do and what I think a number of others will needed in the framing trades.
it is nice
As a plumber I always need accurate and heavy duty tools. This 2′ magnetic level was perfect for my needs. I used it most recently on a double laundry tub installation. The heavy weight and substantial “feel” of the level helped it stay in place while I adjusted the legs underneath the tub. I didn’t need the magnetic function for this job but it tested it on some nearby ductwork and it held quite well. The vials are nice and large so they’re easy to read even with the lousy lighting I was working with. I’ve been very pleased with all of my Milwaukee levels so far and count them as my favorites.
Although I’m not a contractor by trade I’ve been doing construction for family, friends and business for over 45 years. In that time I’ve accumulated many levels in assorted sizes. Some, good quality, some, not so good. I’ve also been using Wilwaukee products, almost exclusively, for the past five years due to their exceptional quality so when I saw their new line of REDSTICK Magnetic Box Levels I knew I would be impressed. From experience I know their quality to be Top of the Line but the pricing of these levels definitely gave me sticker shock. Can they really be worth the price they’re asking? These levels incorporate all the high-end features you’d expect. Lifetime guaranteed .0005 in. accuracy, exceptional readability in all three vials, rubber end-caps, over-molded, non-slip grips (48 in. and up), strength of construction with an all-metal backbone and super strong amplified rare earth magnets. Also, all of them have a hanging-hole so they can be stored off the ground. I ordered an assortment of sizes to replace all my other levels. I can truly say that until you hold one of these in you hands you will never be able to appreciate the overall quality of this tool. Due to the high price point these are probably not the levels for the weekend handyman unless you demand the very best in your tools. I’m still not sure I can justify the selling price of these, I’d like to think they’re just testing the market, but bottom line, unless in the future there’s some major revelation in the level industry these are the ones I’ll be buried with. I know, I’m a tool junky. LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTYEvery MILWAUKEE hand tool is warranted to the original purchaser only to be free from defects in material and workmanship.
My new 36″ box level is the best quality I have ever owned. The level has magnets built in to hold it up to steel surfaces without having to hold it. The level has three easy to read vials, with the top one being able to be viewed from three sides. There’s a hole to store the level when not in use (hanging it up). The finish is a beautiful red crinkle coat. There’s also rubber ends to protect it in case it falls.The material it’s made of is aluminum. It’s twist resistant and it shows no sign of flexing.The quality and durability are exceptional. This is a lifetime level! I highly recommend it.
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.
I love this Milwaukee level. They operate as advertised and are a solid great quality tool. The level itself is very strong and clean. The bubble is very clear and easy to read. I will not have a use for the magnetic side but I did try it out. I was very surprised how strongly it held on. This level is heavy duty great buy. I am very pleased with this purchase.
