Modern Spirit Level: Stabila 41048 R-Beam

About $180; for carpentry, landscaping. stabila.com

The R-shaped cross section is easy to grab and, according to the manufacturer, 120 percent stronger than its top-of-the-line box-beam levels. Use this 48-inch model to hang doors, as a straightedge—it has three uninterrupted edges for striking lines—or even as a screed. It's a snap to clean.
