Level tools


Levels: A—2-ft spirit level, B—4-ft. spirit level, C—6-in. spirit level, D—water level with electronic level sensor, E—plumb bob and string, F—laser level, which can be attached to a standard level.

 

 

LEVELING AND USING A LAYOUT STICK

 

1. To mark a repeating layout on a wall, such as the spacing on a tile grid, start by making a layout stick.

 

 

3. After transferring a series of vertical and horizontal marks, you can establish level and plumb lines.

 

 

Use a 4-ft. spirit level to check furring strips and other jobs where you read the bubble.

 

 

2. With the layout mark captured on a straight board, you can transfer a series of marks to the wall.

 

 

4. On large areas, establish marks at the top and bottom of the wall, and snap a chalk line between the marks.

 

Also use the level as a straightedge, to check for depressions in a wall surface.
