Every once in a while there is a tool that does not get much attention, but is so good that people just buy it without all the hoopla of product announcements and hype.
C.H. Hanson Precision Ball Level
This level is a great example. The C.H. Hanson level is one of the best on the market. It’s extremely easy to use and will do so much more than just measure 90 and 45 degrees.
This level is designed to measure all angles and pitches. It will measure accurately and easily.
The precision ball level is a little more expensive than the current levels made by Empire but at around $40 it is a great deal in my opinion.
I particularly like the wide stance and heavy-duty construction of this level. It is the same size as common lumber and that makes it very easy to hold in place for measuring and marking. You can use it and abuse it and it will give you years of service. The heavy duty aluminum frame is very stable and even has groves for leveling pipe and other round objects. For example, when I get through with this article I will be using it to set up construction for a patio.
Pitch and Degree Scales
It will measure angle in any position and has built in markings for both degrees and pitch.
It is fairly hard to find this level. I have only seen it in a few stores but you can easily buy it from Amazon and have it shipped free to your home. It’s worth the wait! BUY IT HERE! CH Hanson 50024 24-Inch Precision Ball Level
