My ancient (Honduras mahogany body!) level grew legs - and after a
long search I bought M-D Building Products' SmartTool with 48" and 24"
bodies, their magnetic bracket, and a padded 48" carrying case. Total
cost was somewhere around $120; but it was a good buy.
This is a digital level that has a self-calibration feature (only
needed when changing batteries or bodies) and displays angles with 0.1
degree accuracy. It has a "hold" button, can be set to beep at
level/plumb, and automatically flips the display for overhead work. My
eyesight isn't what it once was and this level seems made to order.
Any similarity between their name and my initials is purely
coincidental - I have no relationship with the company other than
being a very satisfied customer.
