As the level feature wars heat up, the EM71 represents Empire’s latest shot. Empire’s “E” series levels are a very identifiable blue aluminum with a blue tint on the bubble glass.
The EM71 is as the name would suggest that the new level’s a lot like the venerable E70. In fact, as far as we can tell it is the E70 with two magnets added on the underside of the box beam. So, if you already have its predecessor (or another magnetic big bubble box beam level), this one probably isn’t worth going nuts over. But if you’re in the market for a magnetic level, it’s worth a look.
The EM71 is available in standard 24″, 48″, and 78″ sizes.
