Q:Does it work on grass
by|Jul 16, 2020

Answer This Question

A:  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.

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

    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes it does and perhaps yes it can be used as a plum...Happy Holidays.

    by|Dec 16, 2019

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

    by|Jul 16, 2020

    A:  Crank locks on place. Base does not come to a point so it would be hard to use as a plumb bob.

    by|May 17, 2020

    A:  Yes.

              A:  I do not know. I doubt it. But seriously? It costs 6$ with the chalk. Its a good product that is convenient to use and performs as advertised.

              by|May 9, 2019

                A:  It might be if your age is 79+. I doubt it would be lifetime.

                    Absolute piece of junk. DO NOT BUY!
                    I love some of Dewalt's tools, but this thing is garbage. It holds up for maybe one or two jobs then the winding mechanism falls apart. Most of it is made of cheap plastic and won't hold up to jobs that a REAL carpenter will use. Buy another brand.

                      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.

                        The reel got stuck within the first ten uses. I was able to free it after a few attempts, only to have it get stuck again. I threw it away since it was past the return period.
