Crick Levels, Up For Review Crick Levels, Up For Review No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I recently reviewed a few levels made by Crick and I’ve got to say I’m rather impressed. The full review of these levels is on my blog: Crick Levels, Up For Review.

Here are the highlights though

  • All wood body
  • Stainless steel binding & end caps
  • Accurate to .015” over length of level (that’s ~ .02° for a 40” level!)
  • Curved sight tubes, these move slower than straight tubes which makes them easier to read

I know it’s short and sweet, but in my opinion these levels are pretty solid tools and there’s not much that needs to be said. Check em’ out.

Oh, I thought you meant the crick levels were up. They sure are around my house with all the snowmelt.

They are some nice looking levels. Appear to be well made. Curved vials are nice, but I prefer some color in them. Clear vials can be hard to see in low light situations. A piece of white paper held behind the level can remedy the problem when it arises. I know the manufacturer guaranteed their accuracy has they all do, but did you check them for accuracy yourself?

They do actually over the green vials for low light situations. The cutout area were the vials are inserted is actually painted white, not sure if it really came through in the photos.

I did not check the level for accuracy in any scientific way. I did obviously use the level around the house and while working on a door, but as far as measuring the accuracy no.

I am a retired bricklayer with 50 yrs experience, these and Smith Levels are preferred by most Masons. The Crick that I bought over 20 years ago is still in top shape.
