Home improvement projects can be costly and time-consuming. Whether you're building a desk or a bed frame, you want to make sure you have the proper tools to get the job done right the first time. Otherwise, you can end up spending more money and time on costly mistakes.

Having a level is crucial for any project because it ensures that all your measurements and alignments are balanced. You don't want a TV hanging on a crooked wall mount, nor do you want the things you put on a shelf to slide down every time you feel like rocking out to some Guitar Hero in your living room.

That's where a good level comes in. Thankfully, you don't have to spend a fortune on this critical tool. A quality Craftsman Torpedo level is just $14 on Amazon right now ahead of Black Friday (you'll save $5).

The 9-inch version of this level is 26% off, and while Amazon usually offers 24-inch and 48-inch versions, they're temporarily out of stock. That may be for a good reason: this level is durable as it is accurate. 

Made with shock-absorbing end caps, the level can withstand heavy use and long falls. The block vials of the level provide maximum accuracy of 0.0005-inch/foot. This small level is a perfect fit for any size toolbox and can also make a great Christmas present.

Your dream home doesn't have to cost a fortune.
