View Full Version : Useful Bubble Level Vials
I bought some of these (eBay 150799123186, the vendor is "piercove1") recently. They're the "bullseye" type, 14mm in diameter, and the price, less than US$1.50 each, delivered, was attractive to me.
I find this a useful size, sufficiently small to be mounted (in my case with cyanoacrylate adhesive (read "crazy glue)) on the top of the camera body without occupying excessive space. They are a nice fit for an Ansco 5x7 or a Korona 4x5.
I have no connection with the vendor and my only knowledge of him is that he ships quickly.
Except this link is for an auction so no guarantee that you will get them for a buck fifty each. Do a google search for "14mm BUBBLE SPIRIT LEVELS" and a bunch of eBay stuff comes up. I just bought 10 for $15 on a BIN listing.
Thanks for posting, last time I looked for these I couldn't find any.

McMaster-Carr Supply Co. (an industrial distributor) has a large selection of bullseye and tubular levels
in various sizes, accuracies, and prices.
http://www.mcmaster.com and enter bubble level in the search box at upper left.
Excellent folks to deal with. No minimum order and only actual shipping charges.
Second Leigh's suggestion of McMaster-Carr. I recently repaired my Voigtlander prism level with a vial from McMaster-Carr. They are a great resource that is worth knowing about.
I'll find out soon if my eBay Bullseye level are any good, as they are much cheaper than Mcmaster Carr. I'm using the on homemade pinhole cameras so 10 for $15 including shipping was attractive.
