Chalk Line Reels
Chalk it up to necessity, but chalk lines have been used by builders to mark distance since ancient times. Chalk line reels are especially useful when marking or laying out straight vertical lines, as they use the weight of the line reel as a plumb line. Determine the length of the chalk line and the fill weight before you start marking. Additional marking tools like carpenter’s pencils, lumber crayons and spring markers are also available. Make your mark with a trusty chalk line reel!
