Different types of spirit levels are used by carpenters, stone masons, bricklayers, other building trades workers, surveyors and millwrights, and other metalworkers.
Here are a few examples:
Carpenters Spirit Level:   Spirit levels feature a slightly curved glass tube which is incompletely filled with a liquid, usually coloured 'spirit' (a synonym for ethanol), leaving a bubble in the tube. Ethanol is used because of its low freezing point, -114C, which prevents it from freezing in cold weather. Most commonly spirit levels are employed to indicate how horizontal (level) or how vertical (plumb) a surface is.
