Do you have a chalk box or chalk reel?
You know, that thing that looks like a teardrop and is coated in blue or red dust?
I’ll bet you never thought the design could be improved, right?
Well, the caffeine-stoked engineers at Milwaukee Tools must have made a pot or two or three too much and SCHAZAAM!
I introduce to you the aluminum body high-tech design with torque-dispersing planetary gears Fine Line Chalk Reel.
The first moment I held this in my hand I thought, “Holy Cucumber! This thing is going to last generations!”
It’s got a feel to it unlike any other. Once you hold one, you have to have one. It’s that good.
This bad boy has got 100 feet of 0.9 mm high-strength braided line lurking under that bright red durable aluminum body.
See that little black button at the pivot point of the crank? You press that to allow the line to go out fast with the crank staying put. It also helps you get the crank end into the small depression at the top of the reel. Very clever.
The top of the reel turns a quarter turn allowing you to fill the belly of the beast with the red, blue or ??? chalk of your pleasure.
The mystery planetary gears power this reel making quick work of rewinding the string after you twerk a line. With a 6:1 ratio, you can chalk more lines faster than a rookie carpenter with six helpers throwing reels back and forth like juggling pins.
