45cm Spirit Level £1.00 @ Poundland in store. Not much else I can really say about it to be honest....ehm it's yellow with black markings and has 3 separate levels...one at either end and another at one side in the middle...

Not sure where to get spare bubbles for it though

Be wary of cheap spirit levels, they don't always read true

I would tend to agree but on the other hand I've also had pricey ones that don't read true...the one I bought seemed to read fine as I compared it with one of the Stanley ones I have prior to posting and there's virtually no difference between the two but knowing poundland it's probably luck of the draw

I have a bosch one which I thought was great. If you turn it upside down you get a completely different reading haha. Totally useles
Now I guess the 'flat earthers' will finally give up.

PMSL...Mmmm there's a thought....no idea if the Stanley one I compared it to reads true either as never compared it to the other Stanley one I have...but then wouldn't know if it read true either as haven't compared it to any other one I have...oh lordy have a feeling it's going to be really long day as I contemplate the accuracy of all the spirit levels I have...think I'd best go and lie down in a dark room for a while and consider the traumatic situation I now find myself in and wonder how many things I've used them for around the house that are actually totally wonky on close examination

On a serious note though at times price is no indication of quality or reliability for that matter

I don't think they are extra, but I do think you have to install them before use

Well if you have used the same level throughout your house, at least everything will be out by the same degree haha. Would agree on price, sometimes you find a good tool that is just perfect And becomes a best friend

I really don't see why it would be out, it's basically a bubble in a small glass tube. I've bought tools before, I'm not sure I'd trust a £1 hammer for very long but can't see an issue with something like this.

If the glass part with the bubble in it is not straight to the edge of the tool, then it won't read a proper straight level
To test a level, put it on a flat reasonably level surface. Note where the bubble sits then turn it the opposite way around(end to end, not upside down) and put it in the same place. If the bubble reads the same then its level.
Yep

Certainly good. You would be surprised how many builders don't know this simple trick
I'd be using an expensive bubble on top of this one first before I'd trust it!
The Bubbles aree made in China, thats why they re cheap
I once saw a builder put One spirit level on top of another spirit level to check the level

Of course I asked why, he said ' One of the levels was not accurate'
Could poundland be going down the pan some of their suppliers are getting twitchy about being paid,
and their insurance cover for payments has been reduced.

Now you’ve just burst everyone’s bubble. We all thought they were made in a distant nation called Poundland

Amply demonstrating why you should never be allowed to DIY anything. Ever!
You'd pay this for the bubble alone in most places.Hot from me!
Please just don't buy cheap levels they just don't work . From a bricklayer x
