It’s hard to get excited about levels, even for me. But the Mosely Infinity level – this one’s different. The Mosely Infinity Level is a modular and connectable level system that’s designed for installation and layout work.
There are two sizes, 12″ and 24″, and two types of add-ons. These levels could be connected end-to-end and at right angles along their sides or faces. So it’s not just a level, but also a square. Connect 3 levels and you can make a t-square.
This is just one of those times where you have to watch the promo video to understand what the tool is about:
Mosely levels have acrylic vials that are adjustable, replaceable, and impact-resistant. They vials are coupled together so that you could see both plumb and level indicators at the same time. The end caps have heavy duty no-slip rubber padding, and are removable. You also get neodymium magnets and a fine edge that serves as a straightedge.
One special feature that I find very innovative are the through-hole knobs that allow you to mount the level to flat surfaces. The knobs provide for up to 3/4″ adjustment, which gives users the ability to fine-tune the level until it’s juuuust right. There are also regular through holes along the level body that offer additional mounting options.
The Mosely Infinity Level system looks like a seriously innovative and versatile kit. And to top it all off, the components all attach together using quick-release levers, and so any combination assembly can be quickly assembled and dismantled. They’ve thought of everything. Need an offset, where one level is slightly misaligned? You can do that too.
Mosely levels are made in the USA.
There is a downside – the price. A set of 12″ and 24″ levels costs $269 via Indiegogo, the fundraising platform Mosely Level is using to drive initial sales. But, when you consider that you’re not just getting 12″ and 24″ levels but also a ~36″ level and two styles of squares… well… it’s still a lot of money.
There looks to be a lot of machining involved here, as Mosely manufactures each level out of billet aluminum.
Mosely has designed several attachments, including a digital level and angle finder ($199), and a jamber and extension set for leveling doors.
For optimal versatility, most users would probably want to opt for the Tradesmen Set, which comes with (2) 12″ levels and (2) 24″ levels. This combo will set you back $519. Individual 12″ levels are priced at $129, and 24″ levels are $169 each.
The VIP Investor Set comes with (3) 24″ levels, (2) 12″ levels, a digital level, a jamber set, a toolbox (looks to be a Stanley structural foam box), a set of replacement parts, and 2 t-shirts.
Right now, Mosely has raised $6,387 towards their goal of $50,000, with 14 days to go (May 8th deadline?). The campaign notice says that the company will receive all funds even if the fundraising goal is not met, and so this could indicate that they have the capacity to manufacture and ship levels regardless of whether the campaign is fully successful.
In case the price point proves to be a little too high, perhaps Mosely Level can create multiple feature tiers, similar to the Klacker Axe multi-tool. Maybe not, as the Mosely Infinity Level looks perfectly functional as-is. I just wish it were cheaper.
