This traditional torpedo level features a body made of laminated bamboo. It features both level and plumb vials. In the best tradition of those such as Rabone and Preston, the top has a brass cover plate and the base has 3mm thick brass inserts to protect the tips. The body is 230mm long, tapering slightly at each end and 40mm tall.
The use of laminated bamboo for the body is an important step forward in the manufacture of this traditional tool. Made from compressed and glued layers of individual sections, laminated bamboo is extremely durable and stable. As an alternative to rosewood and other increasingly scarce tropical timbers, laminated bamboo is perfect. Bamboo stems mature at 4 to 5 years old. After harvesting, new shoots emerge from the ground making it one the most natural and sustainable materials ever!
