    Precision bubble level suggestions (Starrett Alternatives)

    Hello peeps,
    I now the Starrett 199 is the gold standard for leveling a machine once you get it into your shop. I was just wondering if anybody has found anything near it’s quality that doesn’t cost your first born. About to pick up a VMC 40 next week and would like to make sure I get it aligned and leveled correctly. Thanks

    I have the Starret 199.... I also have a Shar's 8" precision level. In my opinion, the Shar's works just as good as the Starret.

    There's plenty of decent levels on ebay, I picked up a Fowler 12" .0005"/10" for $58 couple of years ago.
