Okay I don't know how this works, but my grandpa always had one of these (in fact he had several of the old aluminum ones) He swore and cut by the line that the chalk left behind. I don't have any tools of my own and I know that I will need to invest in quality tools so that I can be my own handy helper around the house. It's solid in appearance, the casing is metal and hard plastic and the twine appears to be un-stretchy. Although I think that in a good stiff wind any of them will lift. There is a locking mechanism that will help me hold the line out to the length that I want it to and reel it back in when I am done. There is a lip on the end of the line so that I can use it to hold the line in place too, almost forgot about that

like this box. It's "feels" substantial, it works well, it is well designed. Personally, i don't notice the line being any more or less precise than any other box i've used and i'm using the chalk that came with it. My old box was geared a little faster, but this one is fine.

If you have bought several boxes and had each one break, line go sour, jamb up...... you get my point.... pay a little bit more for this one and you will be saveing money

Pros:
1. Nice heavy-duty product.
2. The lock works well and easily to hold the chalk line at a desired length for snapping.
Cons:
1. A LOT of chalk comes out with the line. I was covered with red chalk after snapping lines on the sheet rock ceiling

As an electrician I really don't know about chalk lines since we don't use them alot but I decided to buy this one for the cool looking design and the good reviews, well when I used it for laying out the center line of a duct bank a civil foreman saw it and immediately wanted to buy it from me and then went on to explain to his worker that this is the beast chalk line reel.

I've been using a vintage chalk line for 40 years - it's chipped and bruised, but keeps going. However, for a recent project i needed 2 colors of line, so I got this Tajima in red (actually the little bottle has powder that's closer to maroon - a darker color than the Tajima PLC 2-R300 red refill bottles). This is a quality chalk line unit that feeds and recoils effortlessly, doesn't leak chalk, has a convenient hook on it, and the line itself is "bold" - i.e., thicker than the standard lines - so the snapped lines stand out better. The chalk powder also seems to retain a line better than the typical blue chalk. I didn't realize that there was such a difference in chalk lines until I got this Tajima. I have several other Tajima products (plumb bob, drywall tools, etc.) and they are all as well made as this chalk line. Recommended

These are the best chalk lines on the market, they have a model for every application , buy a bold line for numerous snaps, the fine lines have there purpose but need to be rechalked every snap

*****

Took 20 years, but this is the best chalk line I have found. I have installed tile floors for 20 years and I snap dozens to hundreds of lines per job depending on the size. The line is the best I have seen, leaves a crisp mark without a lot of spillage. There is a learning curve to using this chalk box but once you learn how much chalk you need to keep in the box it works great. Just wish I found this product years ago, this will be the last one I will ever buy.
