Use the level you have make a cut and see what you have. A precision level is nice but don't buy one

What's the consensus on whether or not a precision level is
really needed to setup a lathe? Can I use a regular old
carpenter's level (or a digital level) and then check the lathe
installation by cutting and measuring a cylinder? I'm thinking
even if I had a precision level, I'd still want to turn &
measure a cylinder to check the installation and correct for any
bed twist anyway. Thoughts & comments please!
