Chalk Line Reel

Whatsapp Order


A chalk line reel is a construction tool used for creating straight and level lines over surfaces, such as walls or floors. It typically consists of a reel housing filled with chalk powder and a string coated with the chalk. The user extends the string to the desired length, snaps it against the surface, and releases the chalk, leaving a visible line that serves as a guide for various construction tasks, such as marking cut lines or ensuring accurate alignment during installations. Chalk line reels are commonly employed in carpentry, masonry, and other building trades to achieve precise measurements and layouts.
