Chalk Line. Tajima's Chalk-Rite Jam-Free CR301JF holds 3 1/2 ounces of chalk — enough to snap 689 feet of lines, says the maker. The 100-foot-long reel features a wide, 1-mm synthetic line and rewinds quickly. The tool has a tough ABS case that's translucent so you can see when it's time for a refill. The filler cap closes tightly and seals with an O-ring to prevent leaks. The CR301JF costs $15. Tajima Tool, 888/482-5462.
