It is great when you can get new tools. These will last a lifetime if cared for. Good investment too!!

You said, ” I am going to use them on some carpentry projects.” What the hell else would you use them on? I’m so happy you’re so proud of your $64 purchase.

Nice set of levels, I am not familiar with ‘Sands” but I have a Husky that is a dead ringer for your sands.(much cheaper) A 12×20 shop will give them a workout. Good luck with the shop.

Do not forget the cases should be environmentally sealed to prevent premature aging…

levels are great! Use them as straight edges, clamp them to sheets as a fence for saws, youll use these a ton.

Very nice CJIII. I might need a few levels myself someday. Mine are getting beaten up. Just cheaply ones I have though.

I did recently buy the CST laser level and also bought the Bosch laser level, love them both, use them to install cabinets.

Levels are great.
