    I need a small bullseye level similar to the one shown but much smaller. 1/2" to 3/4" in diameter and up to 1/2" tall, plastic, and available singly. Ebay doesn't have what I need. I've found them on Chinese wholesale sites but their not for sale to me.

    Sears carries them in 2 sizes under their Craftsman tool brand name. I have the small and large ones both.

    The only one I can find at sears is the same large version I already have. I remember looking at mcmaster carr in the past and they have some but not quite what I'd like. Anyone have a direct link to a source?

    Samys in Fairfax carries them and also a pair of levels that are 90º from each other.

    Here is the Sears information:

    Craftsman Acrylic Circular Level #9-39891.

    The bar code reads D9 M39891 for those interested.
