Spirit levels can be useful in several applications. In fact, it’s hardly possible to do without these small tools for adjustment when striving for perfectly horizontal alignment of machines, mechanisms, or instruments. Even after an initial setup, spirit levels still come in handy during regular operation to show whether the positioning is correct.
In addition to not requiring a power supply or data lines, these levels are reliable and easy to adjust and can be added at any time.
What’s more: JW Winco, the standard parts specialist, has expanded its existing selection of bull’s eye and screw-on spirit levels with two new models.
The Cross-spirit levels GN 2276 — combine two perpendicular linear levels within a single, round aluminum housing. This design shows the alignment in two planes at once, making installation and leveling easier and faster.
JW Winco offers two versions. One with a flat underside for direct installation and another with an alignment ball on the bottom side for adjustment. The second type, designated “JV,” allows the spirit level to be adjusted using the three installation screws to set a zero point adapted to the specific situation with a variance of +/- 2 degrees.
The Screw-on spirit levels GN 2283 — new screw-on spirit levels in an aluminum housing. While the existing screw-on spirit levels GN 2282 have been in a deep-drawn, non-adjustable sheet metal housing, the new GN 2283 has the same properties as the right-angle spirit level GN 2276.
The new screw-on spirit level is available as a directly mountable, flat version “AV” and an adjustable version “JV” with an alignment cam on the bottom. Here as well, the spirit level is adjusted during installation using the two socket cap screws.
Both the new linear and cross spirit levels are available in two sensitivity ratings. The two millimeters of bubble movement correspond to either 6 or 50 minutes of arc. JW Winco offers a detailed conversion table to illustrate which sensitivity is ideally for various applications, making it quick and easy to compare height differences, degrees, and minutes of arc.
