Overview

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

review date: October 1, 2005

The price of this box is a bit steep, but it's a well-built tool that should last a lifetime. Available in extra bold or ultra thin, each box has 100 ft. of tightly braided nylon-poly line that leaves a crisp mark and rewinds at a 3-to-1 ratio. The line also can be held taut with a locking lever that releases when you start to rewind. The rewind system felt a bit awkward in our test, but remodeling it with a file made the fold-out handle lie flatter, which made rewinding the line easier. Unlike most chalklines, this box has only one piece of felt where the line exits, so less chalk is lost. The nose unscrews to make refills quick and easy.
