Product Description

Product Description

The Starrett 98-6 precision machinists’ level is six inches long and has a graduation (also called sensitivity) of 0.42 mm/m, or 80-90 seconds. The level has two vials to provide accurate results. The main vial is ground and graduated with five lines and adjustable to a positive setting. A second cross-test vial allows measurements from two directions at once. An involute groove runs the entire length of the level base, and provides a reliable seat for round work, such as leveling pipes or shafting. The base is made of machined cast iron for increased durability, and the glass vial is housed in a brass tube with a friction-fit closing, to prevent breakage. The level is warrantied for one year.

H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

Levels are instruments that are used to determine the true horizontal or vertical plane of a surface. The most common type of level is the spirit level, or bubble level. Spirit levels have a liquid-filled, bowed tube (also called a vial) with a bubble that moves when slight adjustments are made to the level. When the bubble settles between marked points on the vial, it indicates that a surface is horizontally or vertically straight. Levels can have one or more vials to determine the horizontal plane, the vertical plane, or various points between, such as a 45-degree angle, simultaneously. Some levels include a laser line indicator that projects a horizontal or vertical beam on a surface. Bullseye levels, or surface levels, are circular, flat-bottomed spirit levels that determine whether a surface plane is level. Machinists’ levels are made of metal and have surfaces designed specifically for rugged use in a machine shop or tool room. Levels can range from highly-complex and accurate machines, such as those used in the surveying and construction industry, to precision instruments used in carpentry and other building trades, to simple, pocket-sized devices for do-it-yourself projects.

The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology and testing equipment, and saw blade products. The company was founded in 1880 and is headquartered in Athol, MA.

This is a wonderful product, it is as accurate and fast as it claims to be. It is very sensitive though, the metal is soft and prone to scratches and rusting, keep it well oiled and it will serve you well.

For the best in precision leveling equipment, the Machinist's Precision level is perfect. At 0.005" per foot, this level is more than adequate for sensitive mechanical machine set-up.

The best machinists level out there at a great price. What more can be said?

Only sad thing is once you buy this, you don't need another one for 20+ years...what a consuming consumer whore I am...

This is a great small precision level, of the same fantastic quality as all Starrett products. It even has a built in shield that rotates into place to protect the glass when not in use. This is a great level for home machinery, like a 9x20 lathe, mini-mill or mill-drill. It is also made in the U.S.A.

Starrett products are known for their quality. Amazon actually had a pretty good price, and it arrived in perfect condition. Be aware, mine was nowhere near calibrated. However, leveling the level is a very simply process, I believe I found the instructions on the Starrett website.

This allows very fast setup and accurate work location on the Mill. Starrett is the best there is, hands down.
