Thank you!

McMaster Carr is a great resource for this sort of thing:


Hope that is what you are looking for.

The link I provided didn't take you to the spot I was hoping. Click on the link and go to "level vials" in the lower right hand corner of the page. There are a few options that might be right. Good luck

Check out these links.

I include all of this if you want to do a little research. There is a bit  more to a spirit level than just putting the bubble in the center. Since we are a dynamic user we want a level with slower response ( at least I do ). This is shown in charts as sensitivity, it has nothing to do with ultimate accuracy just how critical that bubble is to center. A fast level will be centered or not centered, no half a bubble. A less sensitive level will show you incremental  deviations from level but more important to me it will react less to small  dynamic movements of the sled. 


I have ordered from W.A.Moyer but they now  have a $50 minimum  order

Level Developments seems to have the largest selection but they are in England and seem to be Wholesale. 

Empire offers the flat mounting clips to go with the traditional vials. These or something similar are what George used to have at PRO. I have not ordered from them.

I just ordered from Heli Pal, they offer two sizes of the rectangular the link is for the smaller one. They do not show sensitivity but they are cheap and consumer oriented. Worth a try
