Product Description

Product Description

The Starrett 98-8 precision machinists’ level is an 8" long spirit level with a graduated main vial that has a sensitivity of 0.42 mm/m or 80 to 90 seconds for determining horizontal plane and a cross-test vial that enables simultaneous leveling in two directions. The main vial is adjustable to a positive setting for accurate results, is made of ground glass that resists scratching to provide clear readings, and is housed in a brass tube with a friction-fit closing to resist breakage. A V-shaped groove along the base provides reliable seating when leveling round items such as pipe, conduit, and shafts. The level has a cast iron base for durability. Levels are used in the building trades, engineering, surveying, and metalworking, among other applications.

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, founded in 1880, is headquartered in Athol, MA.

From the Manufacturer

Starrett Machinists Levels have ground and graduated main vials and include a cross test vial. The base of the levels feature an involute groove running the length of the base which provides a reliable seat for round work. The 8" main level vials have graduations that are approximately 80 -90 seconds or .005" per foot. To guarantee accuracy, the length of your level should not be longer than the work you are leveling.

You can spend a lot more without getting appreciably better results.

This is a fine piece of equipment. Very well made, solid, carefully machined. A good level is one of the few precision measuring devices that is self- calibrating. It did not arrive calibrated but ten minutes of tinkering put things right and it has been perfectly adequate to the task of leveling the beds and ways of a whole shop full of mills and other precision cutting machinery. You can spend a lot more without getting appreciably better results. The photos are a little misleading in that there is only one level in the box. The instrument has two glasses( a "major" and a "minor") set at 90 degrees in the same plane, both on the same frame. The "major" glass is the only one that is truly accurate. The "minor" glass just lets you know if you are in the ballpark with respect to the second axis of the plane you are concerned about. Starrett 98-8 8-Inch Precision Machinists Level

I use this to level and match slates on pool tables. The slates, not just the legs. Believe me this thing will tell you the truth. Took me about 20 minutes to calibrate, not a problem when it will tell you when you are within 1/1000 of an inch per foot. It is only gradiated to 5/1000 of an inch but each gradiation it more than an 1/8 of an inch apart and dividing these into 5ths is easy. Believe me when I say A Pool table worked over and shimmed properly with this will be the levelest table you ever played on.

Does a great job of leveling my equipment , mainly lathes . I'm going to use it to level my other fixed tools also. It would be nice to get the greater accuracy on the lathes.

This is a very high quality American made level. I used it to level my new lathe. It got me very close and was worth the money.

Of course it works well, it's Starrett. Getting the level adjusted is a bit touchy, but it only takes a few minutes.
