On the subject of offset bends, there's an outfit that makes a torpedo level for the odd angles like 10, 22.5, 30, etc. I think you had to specify which vials you wanted in the level when ordering. Now I can't find it.

Please help!

Thanks, iwire, but the one I'm looking for had fixed vials and, I believe, rare earth magnets. I'm not sure that Stabila will stick to emt.

Dave, I have a Stabila level with rare earth magnets. No problem sticking to EMT. It sticks so well you need to remember to take it off the EMT when your done.

A co-worker of mine really likes those Stabila torpedo levels. They are just a little too large for my tastes.

Wonder if no-dog knows Greenlee stole it's patent... or maybe there was a production under license agreement?
