Stanley Level 39 1/2 Review By: I.Ball
Category: Old Levels
Tool Type: Level
Model No: 39 1/2
The Stanley level number 39 1/2 is referred to and classed as the Stanley
machinist level 39 1/2.
The Stanley 39 1/2 level is 150mm (6 inches) long.
The level has meshed machined sides to offer the user additional grip when handling.
The level was originally finished with a nickel plate finish to give the level a bright look and help prevent the tool from rusting.
This nickel plate is prone to flaking off over time through use and neglect. It is not uncommon to find these levels with no nickel finish present.
The Stanley 39 1/2 has a smaller sibling which is two inches shorter at 4 inches in length and goes by a different model number, the Stanley 38 1/2 level.
