Tool of the week from HF

For $4.99, this thing works great! Very easy to view.

Magnetic base sticks to the metal roof, and I put it on my flat metal dash when I move the bus, to level it. 1/4 turn shows me level right & left and 1/4 turn shows me level front to back.

If I'm leveling outside bus, it sticks to metal sides and bumper.

I noticed if my air bags are inflated, it shows 6į out of level... Dump the bags and it goes level.
I installed a tv mount swivel pole from floor to ceiling with 1 1/2" conduit, and the angle finder showed me I needed to make a 15į cut for the top... Fit perfectly!

I keep it stuck to side of refrigerator.

Well well well! For $4.99 I'll have to pick one up next time we do a trip down to Lansing, MI. That looks mighty handy!

I have bought so much stuff from HF over the years.. and even though some people claim its junk I have yet to destroy anything form there... perhaps its because im a casual tool user and dont use stuff every single day 8 hours a day..

ive bought quite a few air tools from there.. and blasted them with 150+ PSI!
