Johnson has come out with a couple of new torpedo levels designed to meet the specific needs of tradesmen. These 6-inch and 9-inch levels are not your typical plastic torpedo levels but instead are machined out of solid aluminum and offer other professional features.

A couple of years ago Johnson Level first introduced their bamboo levels. Bamboo is advantageous to use for a number of reasons including strength and sustainability, so is it any wonder that they have decided to introduce a line of T-Bevels and Try-Squares that use the fast growing grass?

You know I love lasers, they automatically make everything cooler, and the Johnson 40-6616 tiling and flooring laser square is no exception. This cool little squaring laser projects two lines across the floor that are 90-degrees apart, thus making it ideal for the flooring trades. But you don't have to be one of the flooring trades to get good use out of this tool; the 40-6616 works great for anyone needing to make squaring lines on the floor. Though the 40-6616 uses new technology like lasers, the tool itself is very simple in design...

Tools are cool and lasers are cool, so we can pretty much assume that tools with lasers on them are double cool. So when Johnson Level sent over their 40-0921 self-leveling cross-line laser, even though I have used other cross-line lasers, I knew I would have fun testing it out. So after getting the kit out of the box, the obvious next step was to take it to the jobsite and put it to work. The Johnson 40-0921 comes in at a price of around $100 which puts it in the price range and...

Up this time for review is the Johnson 40-6048 Glo-View Digital Level. This level is built around the Johnson Glo-View level body (reviewed here), but gets boosted into the digital age with a digital readout and all the goodies that goes along with it. Since I have already covered the analog parts of the level in the regular Glo-View review, today I will only be covering the digital parts. Analog levels have served us well for so many years, why do we need to go digital? Well, I am not here to tell you...

The simplest tools are often the hardest to review. How much different can any two tape measures be? They are all basically as simple as a thin piece of metal with lines and numbers. So simple, yet, I have the hardest time finding one that I like. I have used tape measures from all of the major brands and have a good understanding of what I like and need, but none of them on the market fit the bill. Design is what makes or brakes a tape measure. It spends a lot of time in our...

Lasers have been one of the most useful and most popular tools in the last 10 years or so. Technology in a whole has been advancing more rapidly then ever before. This allows us to buy more advanced tools from the past at a much lower price today. Case in point is the Johnson Model: 40-0918 manual-leveling rotary laser level that Johnson sent over for review. Just a few years ago it would have been impossible for a DIYer to go out and buy a rotary laser level, but today the 40-0918 can be purchased for...

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on Earth and also one of the strongest; so why isn't more stuff made out of it? Well, the hollow down the middle of each piece of bamboo might have something to do with it. But now thanks to new technology and strong glues, more and more possibilities for bamboo are becoming available. To make bamboo more useful, they cut it into smaller pieces, then glue all of these pieces together to form larger lumber. It is from here that they can make things like flooring, or in the case...

Have you ever found yourself wanting more information while reading the packaging on a tool? Having the most information sure makes your choosing the right tool a lot easier, but there is only so much one can fit onto the packaging. The smaller the package, the less information we get. Johnson Level is changing all if this with the addition of QR codes on their product packaging. QR codes are similar in function to barcodes and contain small bits of information. These codes can be scanned with most of the newer smart phones by simply installing a...
