How to Snap a Chalk Line

A chalk line, or chalk box, is a tool that is used for laying out straight lines on flat surfaces, or marking sheet material and lumber stock for cutting. Using this tool will be more precise than pencil lines, especially marking over longer measurements. Chalk lines usually have 50 to 100 feet of thin line wound around a reel in a small case containing chalk powder.

To mark a line, you gently tap the case to coat the line with chalk, then pull out the line taut, and snap it with your finger and thumb pinching it. Most modern chalk lines do double duty as plumb bobs. The plumb bob is simply a pointed weight on the end of a string line used to find vertical points via gravity.
