Chalk Reels

February 2016

Milwaukee Tool introduces Bold Line and Precision Line Chalk Reels. Featuring the industry’s first planetary gear system and integrated STRIPGUARD™ clutch, the new chalk reels have been designed from the ground up to deliver the longest gear life in the industry.
Unlike most chalk reels with a spur gear system, Milwaukee’s new chalk reels feature a planetary gear system that distributes forces evenly over 3 gears, putting less stress on internal components to prolong life. A proprietary StripGuard™ Clutch protects gears when the line is snagged or excessive force is applied, while a premium 6:1 gear ratio ensures the chalk line is quickly returned to the reel housing. The combination of these features leads to an even more efficient reel, and less need for frequent replacement units.
Both Bold Line and Precision Line Chalk Reels are designed with braided lines for increased strength and a sharper line. The 1.5mm braided line of the Bold Line Chalk Reels allows the user to snap multiple bold, clear lines; while the Fine Line Chalk Reels’ tightly-braided 0.9mm line minimizes chalk spill and creates a clean, crisp line.
To protect internal components, and for even more added durability, all chalk reels boast reinforced reel housing for increased jobsite protection. A flush folding handle prevents the handles of the reels from moving when not in use or during storage.
