Overview

Editor's Review: New Chalklines for an Age-Old Job

review date: October 1, 2005

If you work solo and need to snap lots of really long lines, this tool is for you. Equipped with 150 ft. of heavy braided line, this chalk box is great for larger jobs like framing long outside walls. The standard hook is replaced with a 1-in.-dia. metal ring that slides easily over large bolts, nails, or even rebar. The chalk reservoir unscrews from the end of the box and holds more than a pound of chalk. The rewind handle is large and easy to use, but a rapid rewind system would be a major improvement. A large molded handle comes in handy for getting a solid grip on the box and tightening up the long line before snapping.
