Magnetic torpedo levels are incredibly useful around the fab shop, and (as usual) Stanley’s managed to release one with some great features. Our favorite: the 180-degree rotating vial. It’s the right one in the picture. If you want to duplicate an angle — say, weld on another bar at the exact same angle — you just rotate the vial around until it shows level, then adjust your second bar until it shows level as well.
It’s also grooved (curved) for use on rounded surfaces — like pipe — and uses rare-earth magnets for some serious holding power. It’s made of die-cast aluminum for durability, and it features Stanley’s standard lifetime accuracy warranty.
