Who in their right mind is going to take a $100+ plumb bob to the job site when they can bring a perfectly serviceable $10 one? If you showed up on the job site with the PB-9 plumb bob from Bridge City Tool Works, you’d either get laughed off the lot, or all work would stop while everyone came over to admire this beautiful tool.
Precisely turned on a CNC lathe from solid brass, the 9.3 oz plummet features a removable stainless steel tip. If you remove the knob from the top of the plummet, you can screw it onto the tip to make a smaller 1 oz plummet. You suspend the plummet from a 21′, black-braided, polyester fiber cord that winds onto a knurled brass spool.
For storing and displaying the plummet, Bridge City Tool Works created a Juara wood stand which also stores the spool and cord. The spool cap/plummet stand also serves as a sighting target.
Available starting March 1st, the PB-9 plumb bob is on sale for $120 until March 3rd. It’ll normally retail for $130.
