Now that's a chalk box!, July 24, 2003
Reviewer: Gary Berton "bert-toolnut"
If you are sick and tired of the plastic junky chalk boxes that should be sold in the toy department, you will love this Tajima chalk box. I have the Tajima Ink Rite and love it, so when I saw this Tajima chalk box, I had to give it a try. First of all it is very good looking, fits in your hand nicely, and is geared to rewind very, very fast. Unlike most chalk boxes with a cheap cotton string, this box has a very strong nylon string. You have to get use to a little stretch on long snaps, but once you are use to that, it is the best. The nylon string gives you a better snap and holds the chalk more evenly so you get a nice line. Also consider getting the Tajima chalk, it is a very fine powder and gives you a nice clean line. Highly recommend, this tool fits in nicely with the other premium tools you are now seeing on the job site.

Great chalk line!, October 28, 2004
Reviewer: doctorsirena "doctorsirena"
I bought this chalk line since we were doing a major reroofing project and needed to snap every other row to keep things straight. For the first part of the roof, we used a cheap aluminum chalk line with cotton string and had to change the string every so often because it frayed. Also, the string would get stuck inside the box and be difficult to pull out (it even broke once). The new Tajima had no such problems. It does take a little while to get used to the difference in string - the Tajima nylon string is thinner and stretchier than the cheap line. But it makes fine, distinct lines. Also, the Tajima blue chalk seems to be finer than standard blue chalk and it makes a sharp line and probably aids in the ease of pulling the string. The string recoils fast when you wind it up. The plastic-covered metal end on the string where you attach it to things works well. This tool seems to hold a lot of chalk (or maybe uses less per snap), so it doesn't need refilling very often. It also looks good - a pretty red color but the case does scratch a bit when dropped from the second story and the paint has rubbed off at the edges from frequent use. Overall, we have been very satisfied with the Tajima Chalk-Rite.


love the quick drive..., February 11, 2006
Reviewer: Somanytools
only down side is I sometimes feel a bind when unwinding...haven't figured that out yet...I must admit I miss my old straight line Brand ...but I guess this is progress... I love the holding clip and the quick drive and it makes a nice clean line...no dull spots...I just don't know if they warrant the price...?


 Can't Beat It !, August 26, 2005
Reviewer: Robert Owens "rdo_jeep"
I really like this tool. Besides the fact that it makes a very well defined thin line, I love the fact that it doesn't spew chalk out of the string hole all over the work piece every time I pull the string out.
PLUS... Nobody else on the job has one and of course that means you're cooler than everyone else. LOL


 good, not great tool, April 30, 2005
Reviewer: M. E. Pelaez
Generally well designed, using it every day showed the weak rewind knob. Plastic shaft snapped. Drilled a eighth inch hole in the lever, used a 3/4" #6 machine screw and locking nut to hold the knob and it should last a lifetime. The nylon string also doesn't hold as much chalk for repeat snaps without a rewind but I trade that for its other advantages.


money better spent elsewhere, September 10, 2004
Reviewer: R. STEWART

I have had many chalk lines over the past twenty years of doing construction and for the money I expected this to be the Mercedes of chalk lines and although it is very "cool looking" it frankly works no better then any of the other chalk lines I have owned. Considering I could by almost six of those cheap plastic ones for what I payed for this (and they do just as good a job), I would say save your money and spend it on something else. I also want to say I was fooled into believing this is a Japanese tool when it is not, it is just a company using a Japanese name on a China import.

     I worked in construction for 38  years installing Linoleum Floors, Formica Counter Tops, Ceramic Tile and lots and lots of Carpenter Work.  Now that I have put in my time at the trades I am selling tools because I believe after all the years using them, I am qualified to guide you in finding the right tool for the job.  -  Just for fun here's a picture of a couple of my trucks from my Floor Covering business, also a picture of my garage and my little dog called Marbles.  -  I will post notes here and there throughout the web site on tools and things that I think are important and/or solve problems, based on my experience.  -  When I was young it seemed impossible to finish a job successfully because there would be a part that just couldn't be done.  Later I discovered that when you have all the tools for the job the most difficult project goes smoothly.  -  Also lets face it, having a good set of tools is one of life's greatest pleasures.  Not only that but it is a great boost to your ego when you receive complements a job you have done.
