    The right tool for the job isn’t always the largest one.

    Yes, you definitely need a 6-foot or better yet a 12-foot level to verify whether a stud wall is true or a span of floor runs level. However, when you’re hanging a framed picture or checking a drawer slide in a bathroom cabinet, a level that’s several feet long can be more nuisance than help.

    And that’s where this 9-inch Irwin, measuring slightly longer than a handspan, comes into its own. One long side is grooved, so you can snug it against pipe or wire. The surface of the other long side is a full-length magnet, which is especially helpful when you’re hanging or adjusting a medicine cabinet or a metal picture frame. My normal practice with picture frames involves resting a level atop the frame, and several trips up and down a ladder or stepstool. Not with the Irwin. The magnet was strong enough that I could attach the level to the underside of the bottom of the frame. Much quicker!

    I also used the level as an early-warning system, spot-checking a few cabinet uppers and bases before pulling out our larger levels. Its size also let me check the top of a washing machine, both front to back and side to side, confirming a slight tilt and motivating me to clear the top of the appliance and wrestle a larger level into the space.

    Although this level is nominally priced, build quality seems quite sturdy. The long sides are metal; all three of the bubble level vials are recessed from the surface; and the swiveling bubble level is in a housing secured by screws, presumably so it stays properly calibrated. Speaking of calibration, after using this level for several days, I checked it pretty thoroughly against a 6-foot level and it remained true.

    So, while the Irwin Tools 1794155 9-Inch 150 Magnetic Torpedo Level is not a replacement for a long level, it is a handy addition for quick checks and smaller spaces, and would fit in a basic toolbox.

    I’ve got a number of levels and a couple of other models from Irwin, adding a 48″ “professional” one that I’ve always been very happy with. Am in the middle of a kitchen remodel and ran into a couple of situations where my big levels were too big and my previous pocket level (a 6″ inexpensive all plastic one) just wasn’t quite up to the task. Needed a good level that was just a bit bigger but also small enough to tuck into my pocket so it’d be handy and this Irwin model seemed to fit the bill. I’m quite happy with it and am finding that it’s quite adequate for simple, non-critical jobs such as I’m doing right now. Checked the accuracy against my big 48″ Irwin and it seems to be right on the money and I find it to be an excellent value. Doubt that it’ll last as well as my more expensive levels but I’m not certain that any level that gets tossed into a tool box at the end of a project can be expected to perform like a pro unit that’s always hung up when not in use. Only downgraded it one star because the implementation of the “adjustable” bubble leaves a bit to be desired but the horizontal and vertical bubbles are plenty accurate and seem quite stable.
