Excellent Chalk Line for Framers
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First I would like to say that this Chalk line was sent to me as a part of DeWalt's product sampling program. With that out of the way, let's discuss overall pro's and con's. Pros: Quick refills The "standard" line is very good The hook on this chalk line holds better than any other I have owned Cons: Concerns about the durability of the refill mechanism The hook can snag easily The refill is easily my favorite feature. Very quick, and the large opening allows you to see how much chalk you have already put in, helping to prevent overfilling. It also closes far easier than the usual sliding plastic door. However, the mechanism relies on a plastic spindle. All other parts of the refill mechanism are metal. This causes me to worry about how this part would handle a fall. Don't think I'm being to critical here, as I did throw this off a two story roof to satisfy my curiosity. The tool is fine, so it seems I'm just paranoid. And besides, I'm sure this was done so that the string does not tear itself out. And now on to a feature you will love one minute and curse the next: the hook. The hook has very large curved prongs that grab rough lumber wonderfully. This includes plywood and whatever stud cavity you happen to be slipping through for a short cut. I had to change where I usually carry my chalk line to compensate for this. Not really a big deal, but if I don't find something to say that isn't positive I'll feel like a shill. I used this reel for installing ridge shingle as well, and for a horizontal ridge it is great. For a hip roof you should be sure to hook at the top of the roof. This is the opposite of what I generally do and I almost ripped a shingle out while reeling the line back in. Seriously, this hook bites in. Great for framers, roofer and siders.

    Great innovation on an standard!
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] What a great chalk reel. Chalk lines are so simple and easy it's hard to think of improving the design but Dewalt definitely knocks it out of the park. Having a geared reel is a great idea, the gearing is fast and smooth - each rotation brings in 6X as much line as normal. Saving time saves money. Dewalt also used very high quality line that absorbed chalk well on the first use, marked clearly on the first use, and didn't spew chalk everywhere on the use. It was very neat and clean. I'm used using a chalk reel for weeks before it consistently makes nice chalk lines, Dewalt's reel marked nicely the first time and everytime after that. Finally, Dewalt's chalk reel has a large opening for adding chalk and an enormous reservoir for chalk. I think it might fit an entire bottle of chalk.

      I was in need of a new chalk line and since I have many Dewalt brand products I decided to try this one. As with all my other Dewalt brand tools it did not disappoint in quality and durability. I use it for the more common tasks such as drywall sizing for cutting. But as you will see in the photos I like to also use a chalk line to give me a secondary guideline when I am cutting lumber to a certain width dimension on a table saw.

      DeWALT 100 ft. chalk line I received this DeWALT chalk line on the HOME DEPOT Seeds program. 1st..I was very pleased with the way it is built with a large hook on the line for secure hookup and the 6:1 gear ratio for fast retrieval of the line. 2nd. The large swing away door to fill chalk reservoir gives visual when filled and helps prevent spills. 3rd. This DeWALT chalk line would be a very useful aid to any builder's tool belt for a very nice sharp snap line for framing. 4th The chalk did not come with the tool, I found out it is best to use a name brand chalk.

      DEWALT 100 ft. 6:1 Chalk Reel Dewalt puts together a great quality, heavy duty chalk reel. This chalk reel has a 6:1 ratio and gives a great 100' (30m) line length. The fill chamber is secured by a unique locking mechanism and opens wide to prevent spilling chalk when filling. They designed the unit with planetary gearing to prevent jams. The line clip is large and has bent teeth to allow a greater hold on the wood or other product trying to make a mark on. The unit is ergonomically shaped to fit well in either hand. The crank handle folds inward to be out of the way. The casing is made out of aluminum. Its overall size is good and will fit in the smallest of tool bags or box. The one issue I had is that there is no belt clip on the back of the unit. There is no way to attach it to anything to carry. This may be viewed as a determent. The chalk reel comes with a limited lifetime warranty. The unit is made in China. I really like this chalk reel. It feels good in the hand. It is smooth in operation. The unit DOES NOT come with chalk. It is dry. I'm very pleased with the reel. I dinged it because it does not have a holster or a belt clip which would be very handy. I rate this unit 4 stars out of 5. Thank you Dewalt for giving me the opportunity to try your product. Thank you Home Depot for offering this product to me.
