Whitticase Inclinometer LevelWhitticase Inclinometer Level   Here is an interesting and seldom seen inclinometer level.  It is English and dates from the 1950s or so.  It is made of Aluminum and is 9" long.  To adjust the instructions simply state the user is to push on the center tapered portion w/ vial till it loosens and then turn to adjust.   There are no screws, locks or the like, just friction  It is a precision fit.  Took me a while to figure out, but there is one pictured on the internet with its instructions, beyond that not much more.  Different & Nice!!

Douglas Five Feature No. 518 LevelDouglas "Five Feature" No. 518 Level  There seem to be plenty of these out there, but little info on what the five features are.  I did find a write-up giving the history of the Charlotte NC. based company but little about the levels features.   Every tool and level collection needs one.

The Beall Tool Co. InclinometerThe Beall Tool Co. Inclinometer  The Beall Tool Co. is still in business and now offers a digital version of this table saw set-up inclinometer tool.  To use, the bar is magnetized and would be affixed to your saw blade.  You would then read the blade angle or tilt where the brass plumb bob like pendulum met the gauge below.  I could find no reference to this earlier version inclinometer they offered anywhere on the internet.  Like new in original box.  Every level / inclinometer collection needs one!  Or use it for the purpose it was designed to do if you do not like digital and batteries in the shop.

Buckeye Plastic Co. Magno-Level / InclinometerBuckeye Plastic Co. Magno-Level / Inclinometer   Very nice condition overall.   An interesting variation given it is a gravity inclinometer as opposed to a liquid based spirit level.  To make it even more appealing it has magnets built into the body to aid in the job when setting pipe, working in a metal building or the like.
