My husband an I went looking for a level he could use when working on my bedroom. We are trying to put stripes on the walls using a measurement. So we bought this 48" level. It has a Maxedge for a continuous marking edge, and comfort grips and shock absorbing rubber end caps. We found this to be durable and not to heavy of a tool for our uses.
First you have to understand, my husband is not a carpenter. Things are either not straight or the wrong size. He really tries, but cars are his work. We have three levels that he purchased 5 years ago and they are real cheap. You can't use them to make a straight line.
We have now finished the job and it came out beautiful. He was so pleased with himself and his helper -the level. Maybe I can get him to try another project with his new toy-the FatMax Level.
