machinist's level

Although "precision level" got 115,000 hits on Google, to 13,000 hits for "machinist's level", once you got through a couple of hundred priority commercial hits, almost everthing related to the LEVEL OF PRECISION, rather than the tool in question. Machinist's level has no such ambiguity.
