Digital Vial

Eyeballing a bubble may seem a little crude once you've used this electronic level's LCD screens, located both on the side and the top edge (INSET). The digital displays, which are accurate to within .01 inch per foot, let you program a pitch into memory to get the angle of a gutter just right or store a measurement of rafter slope until you're ready to write it down. Turn on the "sound" feature, and you'll hear the device beep faster and faster until its shrill scream tells you you've hit level—nice for those solo leveling jobs when you can't see the display. 24 inches; Approx. $209, Stabila
