Milwaukee Tool continues to extend its line of hand tools with its first set of levels, a 10-inch Torpedo Level designed for the electrical trade and a 10-inch Reaming Torpedo Level for general contractors and plumbing trades. Both levels take into account the unique needs of their users and provide design elements that enhance their function.
“We are always looking at and researching how our core users use their tools every day in the field. We take into account the details,” said Tim Albrecht, vice president of hand tools, Milwaukee Tool. “Both of these levels are more than just a level, their features add benefits to the user’s experience, saving them time and making their job easier.”
The 10-inch Torpedo Level has four level vials signifying 0, 30, 45 and 90 degrees. The 30-degree vial makes it ideal for users to place the level on a metal surface and with its built-in rare-earth magnet, bends conduit for running wire. Additionally, the level features two holes for switch and outlet alignment allowing for easy installation of these common parts.
The 10-inch Reaming Torpedo Level has three vials centrally placed signifying 0, 45 and 90 degrees. The 0-degree vial has 1/4-inch and 1/8-inch markers on both sides to assist with aligning pipes for waste water drainage. Reaming edges allow users to ream PVC pipes from 1/2 to 6-inch in diameter. Additionally, one end is angled and carved to serve as a shovel for clearing dirt. Because vials are centrally placed, they are less likely to be damaged.
Both levels have a best-in-class accuracy rating, tested by a special optic meter. The levels are backed by Milwaukee’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. Dedicated to delivering advanced solutions to increase productivity, Milwaukee’s Hand Tool category will continue to grow and offer innovative products.
