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.

I use it to calibrate other equipment. Solid, accurate, precise. If it came in a nice case instead of a cardboard box, I'd give it 5 stars.Published 2 months ago by Edward Falk
The issue is not over quality, that's why I chose Starrett. I needed this tool with short notice, and it came faster than I expected it to, in excellent shape. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Gordon Tucker
Bought this Precision Level for my Machine Build area. Our older Level was dropped and this is the replacement Level. We love these levels. Will not buy anything else. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Cory D
This is the most accurate level I have ever purchased. It an order of magnitude better than the levels I normally use and I keep this Starrett level close at hand when I'm working... Read morePublished on April 27, 2012 by Amazon Customer
