I remember a link being posted here where you could get a customer torpedo levels made. Anybody know what website that was?

Just got the custom-vials level from NoDog. Two weak points with the level:

1.The magnets are not very strong.

2.The "level" vial is not visible from the top side, as it is in every level I've ever owned. Their response was, essentially: we hear you, you're not the first to complain, we might change the design someday.

Stabila for sure when it comes to my torpedo and 2 foot level. I think the no dog pipe level is just fine though for what it does. If you don't have a no dog you can strap a piece of strut on the pipe and put a torpedo on that, but you better be sure it's got a strong magnet on it

Well...

I do have, and use a Stabila, with the adjustable vial, mainly for bending larger conduit. There is no more better made, or more accurate level I've found.

The problem, however, is that it is an unweildy length, compared to what U.S. electricians are used to using, i.e. Klein, Checkpoint, etc. .

I would like a level with the quality, accuracy, and adjustable vial of Stabila, the magnets of Checkpoint, the choice of degree vials and vial location of the No-Dog.

Till then, I will continue to Stabila for large pipe,and my No-Dog on a daily basis,hoping like hell I don't drop it off my lift from 20 feet up.

I hear you, I have the pocket stabila but a skinny superstrong 3 or 4" long one would be ideal.

where do you guys get your stabila levels from?
Off them internets.


You might find places which carry them in tne Bay Area - millwrights seem to use them -but the one with the adjustable vial is not carried by anyone in the area I live, near Santa Cruz.
