Craftsman 18" Aluminum Level - Replacement Lens

by rcsec

I picked up a vintage Craftsman 18" Aluminum Level - AR 3988. The vials in this old tool are still functional & readable but 3 of the glass protective lens are either broken or missing. Are replacement lens (& orange retainers) still available from Sears (or the original manufacturer) or is substitute available or perhaps easily fabricated?

Thank you for your question on the old vintage 18 inch Craftsman level.

The level was probably made by Empire level corp. But they do not have any replacement parts for the older levels, only for the new models.

I am sorry that I was not able to help you with your request.

When doing research I did see a couple of these levels on the e-bay site by model number AR3988 and they looked to be in pretty good shape for less than $15.00.

You might want to pursue that avenue.
