αλφαδιά -> (horizontal or vertical) level line

Από: http://alpha6.gr/wp/?cat=133

αλφαδιά: οριζόντια γραμμή ή επίπεδο σε σχέση με κάποιο ύψος αναφοράς. Π.χ. τα ξύλινα δάπεδα μέσα σε ένα χώρο, πρέπει να είναι αλφαδιά, διαφορετικά το δάπεδο θα έχει κλίση.

Πως αποδίδεται αυτός ο όρος στα ελληνικά;

The translation would be level line and depending on the tool used it could be a spirit level (or bubble level) or a laser line level.



# evel: indicator that establishes the horizontal when a bubble is centered in a tube of liquid

# An engineer's spirit level is generally used to level machines, although they may be used to level large workpieces on machines such as planers. Spirit levels are also used in building construction, by carpenters and masons.

# A tool employing a chamber with a colored liquid (usually alcohol, hence spirit) and an air bubble, used to determine a horizontal or vertical reference line

For vertical ones though we use plumb line. Wikipedia's entry about plumb line (plumb-bob) is quite interesting. You can find it here or by clicking the very first definition URL.

The article about the spirit level from Wikipedia has almost all the types of level I knew (and more, to be honest). :) Interesting read.

Δηλαδή ανάλογα με το αλφάδι είναι είτε horizontal level line, ή vertical level line;
