4-Foot

For: Precision carpentry across a long expanse, as when installing cabinets, trim, doors, or floors. Plastic models are suitable for rougher work on gutters, drains, concrete slabs, and masonry walls.
How it works: Lengthy tool can span long distances, unaffected by bumps and dips. Curved vials are more accurate, but only the bottom one in the pair indicates level at any given time.
