Empire has come out with a new limited edition 9″ torpedo level with American Flag “hydrographic” color scheme, model EM81.9LE.
Because… why not?! And yes, it’s made in the USA.
It features a magnetic edge, high contrast blue E-band vials, an aluminum-reinforced frame, and V-groove working edge.
Good news – it’s priced at $10, which is the regular price for the EM81.9 torpedo level. (Last holiday season Home Depot had the regular level in a special 2-for-1 pack, but $10 does seem to be the regular price.)
The EM81.9 isn’t the best torpedo level in the world, whether we’re talking about the regular blue version, or this American Flag version. But it’s a solid, dependable, and inexpensive level that you won’t cry about if it gets dinged, damaged, or lost.
The EM81.9 looks to have been redesigned recently. The American Flag version looks to be based on the older styling, but that’s okay. I’ve used the older style, and not the new one yet, and have no complaints. The new one does look better from an aesthetics standpoint.
