28 Mar Three Digital Levels from Big Horn Corporation
The new levels include 6”, 18” and 24” long models. The 6” level (item 14223) has an angle slope LCD readout, a magnetic base, 360-degree bubble gauge, and both vertical and horizontal spirit bubbles. Even if the instrument is turned over, the data display will rotate with it. There’s a large and clear display with a backlight so even in the darkest place, a woodworker can easily read measurements. The accuracy is ±0.1° at 0° and 90°, and the accuracy is ±0.2° at -1-89°. The level takes a button battery that is easy to replace. This ‘inclinometer’ provides measurements in angle, per cent tilt rate, inches and metric at the pressing of a button.
Big Horn’s 18” magnetic torpedo digital level (14221) and the 24” model (14222) have IP54 dustproof and waterproof ratings, enjoy the same high degree of accuracy as the 6” model, and display angle and bevel readings in degrees, pitch IN/FT, mm/M, and percent slope. They’re especially well-suited to building roofs, rails, and ADA ramps. The on-board protractor lets the operator set or check relative angles between surfaces. They have a sturdy solid I-beam aluminum frame, magnets, and rubber end caps. The large, bright LCD display flips so that you can see the reading at whatever angle you’re holding the level. And the audio indicator functionality means a carpenter can achieve precise level and 90 degrees even in the dark. Each of the longer levels has a strong magnetic base to keep it in place plus a low battery indicator, and it automatically stores the last 8 angle measurements. With the touch of a button one can transfer target values to other work areas. The two larger levels will power off automatically after about 3 minutes of no use.
