Does it work on grass

Asked by Ephraim July 16, 2020
2
Answers

Well... I’m thinking athletic field? I guess it could if the grass wasn’t too tall, but I would probably use a bigger box like a 100ft with the Heavy line, and fill with more chalk nose down will give heavy mark, not sure if DeWalt makes one with. Heavy line I think would be best. I use this smaller one to cut plywood and stuff, works good.

Can I use this as a plumb? Does the string or crank fold/lock into place ?

Yes, but not that heavy so wind will blow it out of position outside.

Wipe it with a damp cloth and let it dry. I wouldnt paint directly over chalk. Just the residual color.

How can you easily remove the chalk after use? Or is it permanent on the material?

Asked by JSmith February 17, 2018

Answers

From what I've seen it's pretty permanent chalk. I was using the line when it was raining and the chalk didn't go away. So water is probably a no go.

Hmmm..well it is nice looking
Cut it out of clamshell, added some chalk, pulled some to check it and it stopped reeling in. Pulled a little more out and started reeling it back in and stopped moving. Well the line did but the handle didn't. I thought " hey why buy a 100 footer when a 30 is more line than I need". Reckon I could hang it from the rafters of my shed for decorations. Not overly thrilled about having to adjust my projects this morning to go get another chalk box. If I knew where my 40 year old metal one was I would not be taking away from my coffee drinking time. Kinda hard to recommend a product I didn't even get a chance to snap a line with, if you buy it and get similar results, hey I told you so.

1 star for how many uses I got out of it.
I used this 1 time and when I went to reel it in it went in about 2 feet and then started to grind and met resistance after several attempts of pulling string out and trying to reel back in I was at the end of the string. I decided to open it up to see if something was out of place. the plastic gear was mangled and had several teeth bent over. spend a couple dollars more and get a metal one. you will end up spending the money anyway. mine is in the trash now. the chalk seems to be good so I kept it.
