Lightweight and small, they are easy to transport and provide highly accurate readouts.
The built-in magnets enable secure attachment to any magnetic surface and zero-setting buttons will recalibrate to reference new surface areas.
They are suitable for a wide variety of applications from checking drill press table settings, to working on aligning grader and tractor equipment. Let's check out five of the best selling options on the market today.

The GemRed digital bevel box is a highly accurate level box with an extra large LCD screen that provides absolute and relative measurements, including the ability to zero set to any position.
The measuring plane also has a disk magnet (only on the bottom not the sides) that can be attached to the work surface area that is going to be measured. It has a fairly wide measuring range of + or -180° and it also auto powers off if it hasn't been used in five minutes-which is a pretty convenient feature. The resolution is .1° with a measuring range of 4*90° and it's powered by two AAA batteries.
Some common applications include setting pitch angles for helicopters, adjusting the blade angle of miter saws and circular saws, setting up the tool settings on lathes, assessing drainage angles and run off slopes, and aligning graders and tractors.
