Catalog - Chain Gang

Chain Gang

New Pricing: INCLUDED WITH THE RADIUS TOOL & CHAIN GANG- $75.00 ( 75 FT. OF CHAIN) I've had 3 Thank you's this week.

This was the handest tool for curved parking!!!! Saved lots of time !!

(Big Foot not included)

To be used with the Radius Tool's 30 ft. Additional 45' chain and fittings Chain Gang.. 75 ft. Total ..and 2 Big Foots (not included).
As the picture shows this is a triangle of chains. The Radius Tool and The Chain Gang has been around for a couple of years now and has helped lots of people to layout those hard radius parking lots. Now you get both. "Remember a 90 degree line every time" if used right. These chains will pay for themselves the first time you use them !!!

These tools are designed to work with a single person.. Using the Chain Gang takes longer to move around the curves But you're snapping the lines as you go. So maybe it saves time?? It does take two weights with one person or 1 weight and two people, but you save the cost of a extra employee. Note:If you have to hire a employee for the extra layout 8 hrs for$15.00 hr.... $120.00, gone the next day. 2- people, 2 days= $240. One Big Foot: $125.00- 2 BF's- $250.00). They Last's Fooorrreeevvvveeer !!!!!

So why not use Two Big Foots (you need two weights with long lines) and get it right faster? By having Big Foot's and using the chain idea, you can march right around the radius, or any layout, and snap the lines as you go. Included are several chain hooks ups, extra links and markers. There is a 60 degree triangle included for the 60`layout on a radius. You can layout all the small side of the radius or you can trust the Chain Gang and not layout the stalls. If the small side of the stalls are on the isle side, you will have to layout the stalls or place a lot of marks on the radius. I have set 3- 9ft. for the right angle, for this isle radius layout that MICK has used in his class. Also I set up the last 3' of the RT with 6" included. This is so you can set the lengths a bit fast and not have get out a tape.

You could lay out one of the surveyors rope (Pre-Marked Tapes) and just place the Big Foots on this as you go around the radius. Just make sure you have the right length in-between the Big Foot's.

THE CHAIN GANG COMES WITH THE RADIUS TOOL AND A MANUAL WITH ALL KINDS OF IDEAS, A PRE-SET TRIANGLE FOR THE 60 DEGREE SET ON A RADIUS, SUGGESTIONS, PICTURES OF THE USE WITH THE BIG FOOT. OR- 2- POLES ONE WITH CLIP AND ONE WITH A CHALK HOLDER. TWO PEOPLE CAN WALK RIGHT AROUND A CURVED LOT. OR WORKING ALONE WITH A BIG FOOT. EACH CHAIN HAS IT'S OWN BAG FOR TRANSPORTATION. ALL FOR.... $75.00.. plus s/h. (If you have a Radius Tool and need just the Chain Gang, OF COURSE! call me, 970-482-0049, mtn. time.

Catalog- Big Foot Radius/Angle/Circle Tool/Layout Poles

"OK" LAYOUT PEOPLE - THIS IS GOOD NEWS !!

I'VE COMBINED THE "RADIUS TOOL" (30') AND THE "CHAIN GANG"(45') "RCGT", INTO ONE TOOL. OLD PRICE FOR BOTH-$120.00..... NEW PRICE FOR BOTH..$75.00

YOU GET 75 TOTAL FEET OF CHAIN(same). A CLAW SPRING SNAP TO ATTACH TO THE BIG FOOT (same). A PRESET 60° TRIANGLE FOR SETTING THE 60 DEGREE ANGLE ON a Radius.

NEW--A PRE-SET 9'x18' RIGHT ANGLE FOR RADIUS ISLE LAYOUT, "RADIUS TOOL", Pg.10 in Manual. This chain can also be used for the 60° Triangle. Pg. 8 Manual. (3 x 9') (There is also a 8'x 3 triangle for the 60`@ 60 on a radius lot.) The Isle layout doesn't have to be so exact, so we can use it for multi uses. I set the 9' lengths with rings in between the 9' lengths. If you have Big Foots these rings can be attached to them, on the allthread to make your corners. If "NO" Big Foots (?) ..Two people can work. There is 3' of chain that has has been set with foot markers and 6" markers. This can be added to the end of any one of the other ends for seting different projects. You will need most of the 75'for the "CHAIN GANG TRIANGLE".Pg.6 manual (A "MICKS TUFF JOB IDEA"-from the Pavement Expo class).

A CHALK HOLDER(same), SMALL LINKS TO USE FOR YOUR SETTINGS (new). EXTRA LINKS(new), 3 BAGS FOR TRANSPORTING (same), AND HANDBOOKS FOR LAYOUT IDEAS, AND HELPFUL PICTURES, DRAWINGS TO HELP.      Over 20 PAGES.

CUSTOMERS HAVE ASKED FOR JUST THE RADIUS TOOL or THE CHAIN CANG, SURE!! $40.00 for either one. YOU GET A LAYOUT OUT BOOK JUST FOR THE RADIUS TOOL "A perfect 90`each line!!", NO head scratching. WHEN YOU ORDER THE CHAIN GANG, YOU GET THE "LAYOUT BOOK" SHOWING THE 60 DEGREE PART AND THE BALANCE OF THE 45 FT. OF CHAIN. THIS IS REALLY THE ONLY WAY TO LAYOUT A RADIUS. IT WILL SAVE YOU THE PRICE THE FIRST COUPLE OF HRS. YOU USE IT. AND WITH THE 2-POLES, ALL THAT TIME YOU HAVE BEND OVER MAKING MARKS,,,, NOT ANY MORE,,, NO BENDING OVER !!! WITH THE 2-POLES. AND IT'S GOOD FOR HOLDING THE STRING WHEN SNAPPING chalk LINES.

"THE CHAIN GANG" This tool was a brain storm of mine after I attended one of "Micks' class at one of the Pavement Expos. He had made a chain into a triangle that one of his CREWS could layout a radius or curved parking area. Well, did that work slick !! The only problem I saw was that he had 3 people.... Not HIS problem, but with my customers, that are probably 75% Mom & Pop or sole proprietors/one person operations, this is a problem. So how do you draw arcs by your self? Well... you hook up the "Radius Chain" to the Big Foot and start making arcs. I've laid out lots of radius/curved parking lots, by myself. If you have a second person you can attach the chain to "two  POLES"(below), It takes no time. Micks crew also had to go back and find the length of the line that was going to be painted and make another mark and snap the line. With the Radius-Chain you establish the length of the painted line when you find the first arc. Then all the lines will be the length your gong to paint. That saves time right there. If you do this by yourself and the Big Foot, you can snap the lines as you go. More time saved. You can use the Radius Tool for Circles and find Angles. (playgrounds)  radius)Comes with all kinds of hints, directions and pictures. Check out the, how to use the radius tool in the hints.

You might say: "I do math to find all my marks". "Well and good". If The Radius you are working on is a perfect circle radius, (and that radius point is no where to be found). Doesn't work to good on a random curve. HOW ABOUT NO MATH! The Big Foot and Radius Chain way, you build each line on it's own radius. Makes a perfect 90 degree every time on each line. It saves times in the long run and there all perfect, no matter where the radius or the curve goes.

Good News Too !! Mick came up with a way to use His Triangle & 3-people, and layout 60 degree parking on a radius. If you go to a Pavement Expo, take Mick's class "On how to do the tough jobs" This will impress you ! More Good News! I came home and figured out how to do these 60 degree Radius jobs with the Big Foot alone. You need the Chain Gang to do this layout or extra chain. More information about this tool and the way to make it pay for itself the first time you use it, is included. Lots of pictures too! (BIG FOOT not included). Both the RT and the CG have their own bag with handles, to carry it on the Big Foot. 75 ft. of Chain. Includes a preset 60°triangle for setting a 60° on a radius. w/bag, PMT, Chalk bx, SEE-->> More Good News...New at the 2013 Expo Tuff Jobs Class...Mick used a 27 ' chain to layout the isle stall marks. (radius) "Walla" the chain for the 60 triangle. Pg.10 manual. 3-9ft.pcs.=27'.  2 tools one chain.

email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

All the fittings, for attaching it to The Big Foot and to build whatever you will need for layouts. Some colored zip ties come with it, to mark certain links so that you don't have to measure the same lengths over and over. I've also set aside a 3 foot link. Very easy to attach to the ends of the chains. With different colored links(in feet), to help find different measurements, faster. The chalk holder attaches to the links. very easy to attach to the chain. With the two poles there's "No bending" over".

***NO BENDING OVER TOOLS ???***

Picture Above: I use this tool to layout the island radius's on dbl. row islands. Notice that the Big Foot is holding the Radius Tool Bag, a set of plans, chalk box and other Items, so you don't have to go find them. Every thing is with you !!!!!

NEW FOR 2014........Check out the NEW Radius-Poles in this section!! AS YOU CAN TELL, I'M HOLDING ON TO A POLE TO MAKE MY ARCS. I've come up with some poles that telescope. One has a chalk holder fastened to it and the other has a snap, for holding the chain. This is really neat for the two man layout. One with the chalk and the other holding the chain. You really layout the stalls. In using these poles, the chain and poles were always somewhere else when we needed them and had to take time to retrieve them. "Not any more," I've attached a tube to the Big Foot to hold these poles. There always handy.   "Good News" The pole with a stick chalk or lumber crayon is use to mark the stalls!!! For The Chalk Line Holder..... The pole with the metal snap,...can be used to hold the chalk line string. NO BENDING OVER TO HOLD THE STRING !!!

PRICE: $75.00.. For Both the RT & CG, comes with manual. Want a catalog? Call or e-mail.

ADD the two poles for $30.00 ( THE NO BENDING OVER TOOLS) TOTAL FOR THE RADIUS LAYOUT TOOLS = $105.00 "SPECIAL" 7-5-2015   RCGT & 2 P0LES...$90.00"

If you already have a Radius Tool and would like to add the rest of the ChainGang..60°triangle and the 90°right angle..$40.00.

I'VE MADE MISTAKES WITH THIS TAPE AND IT WILL TAKE A LITTLE LONGER TO DO THE MEASURING. MAYBE YOU CAN WORK LEFT HANDED, MAKING YOUR MARKS WITH YOUR LEFT HAND, I CAN'T.  SO,... NOW THERE IS IS A "RIGHTY HAND TAPE". WHEN YOU PULL OUT THE TAPE (CASE IN LEFT HAND) THE NUMBERS WILL BE "RIGHT SIDE UP TO YOU". I'VE WONDERED FOR YEARS WHY THIS HAS TAKEN SO LONG.

Two Poles and Radius Tool Chain

 

 

Tired of bending over for layout? and the string holder for snapping chak lines? NO MORE !!!

<----- These 2 poles where my first try. They worked great. But we had to go find the RT or carry it with us on the jobs .......    "WALL-A" the telescoping poles AND THE STORING TUBE.

If you have a Radius or Curve Parking Lot to lay out, fast and want it to look perfect, why not use the TWO POLES and the Radius Tool. With two persons working the RT it will be perfect AND you don't have to bend over to make any marks.              A PERFECT 90° EVERY TIME !!! Working alone with a Big Foot, works the SAME ! Just takes a little longer, but you knew that. If you ever had problems trying to make it all fit, THIS IS SIMPLE.. You will pay for most of these tools the first large lot you lay out by your self. Sounds a little impossible?? but it's NOT !!!

You can, with a 2 man team, use the metal snap handle, "NO BENDING OVER", for "HOLDING" the string "For snapping the chalk lines"

Catalog - Premarked Custom Tapes

THE (PMT) PRE-MARKED LAYOUT TAPE

Pre-marked tape

To save countless hours of layout time, Big Foot Layout Tools offers a pre-marked surveyors tape. It's made by Keson® Tools. This tape is 1/4 inch wide, almost 1/8 inch thick, coated in clear vinyl for excellent durability**. Stall markings are marked on both sides, so you don't have to fight the tape to keep it right side up. The Keson tape comes in two measuring units: Inches or Tenths of a Foot. email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Hint: if you do a lot of changing of stalls, new layouts, some more stalls than original or less. If you use the tenths tape you can use a minimal function calculator, to do the calibrations. That way you won't to go back and forth from inches to tenths.   If you don't have one ask and I'll send one with the order. Saving a lot of time.

If you are just starting up and don't know the stalls sizes in your area. Before you call in your order, measure some stalls in your area, both straight in and at an angle. For angle stalls, measure straight across the the stall (90`between lines) and along the curb between the lines.. If you still don't know what I'm asking, Call or email and I'll send you a diagram of what I'm saying !!

I WILL PUT WHAT YOU WANT ON THE TAPE. (THERE IS NO SENSE OF HAVING A SERIES OF MARKS THAT YOU NEVER USE:) Keep it at 4 stalls, less confusion.


I have to clarify stalls on the tape and why just 4(maybe-5).I have put 5 on a tape. It's hard to find that 5th color. The sun does it's work on the tapes. Colors fade.

I had a customer ask for 8 marks on a 300 ft. tape. I don't think they thought through what it would be when he unrolled the tape. There would have been 251 marks on the tape. 9-8 marks each 10 ft. I couldn't find enough colors that wouldn't look like each other after a while. he wanted: 8', 8'6", 9', 10' @ 90° & 60°. (60° marks,- 9'3",9'10", 10'5", 11'6"). I suggested 1-tape w/ 90°stalls, and 1-tape w/60° stalls. That's with the 2 tape special $10. off each tape.

Marking a tape with so many marks would be very time consuming.

So, I'm going to put a price on extra marks. beyond the standard: $10.00 for each extra set for a 200 ft. tape. And $15.00 per extra set for a 300 ft. tape.

***NEW***

I have 2 new single marks on the tapes. One at 20'9",PURPLE. One at 22' BROWN.

These marks are for setting a quick 60°angle. They depend on what the dimension is "out from curb". (18 ft. or 19 ft.)  Make a couple marks out from the curb 18 or 19, snap a quick chalk line, across both marks. Layout your stalls for your 9' @ 60°( 10'5"). Put "0" on your second stall mark and hold 20'9" PURPLE, (if @18'), draw an arc over the chalk line. You should have a 60° angle. If it's out 18', use 20'9", if it's out 19', use 22', BROWN. This sets your stall on the isle.

Note: 22' will be BLACK, second stall, if you have 9'6" @ 60° (11') Remembering these stall lines (I hope)will speed up the layout.


It comes on a cord reel (reel colors will vary) for easy roll-ups and storage. I recommend just having 4 stalls per tape. There is no need having a stall mark on a tape that you don't use. That's the way other tapes come, with several dimensions that you'll never use. Put the stalls on that you use. Some never use the 8'6" stall or the 45 degree stall. I've been putting on 9'6" and 10 ft. stalls both in 60 and 90 degree, on lots of tapes. I've put just one stall on a tape, because they did a lot of night work and just wanted one mark to find.. Made a lot of difference just to look for one mark at night!

If you have different stalls that you use once in a while, may I suggest, buying a 200' tape with just those odd stalls on it.

I help layout two NEW Walmart stores, one had 10 ft. stalls @ 60° and the other had 9'6" stalls @ 60°. Also the tape colors will fade with the ultra violent rays and it's not going to stay "WHITE". And to many stalls are hard to find in the early A.M. and the late P.M.  So I use the  Permanent Markers, that way you can clean the tape and refresh the markings as needed. I used a nonabrasive cleaner, and remarked each of my tapes, each spring.

You can have any stall, any angle. If you order early a.m., I can ship next day. 970-482-0049 mtn. time.

AVAILABLE MEASUREMENT UNITS:

Inches, & Tenths of a Foot

Available Lengths:

200 ft. - 300 ft.

Markings for Tapes:

YOUR CHOICE!!!!

SOME SUGGESTED STALLS:

@ 90°: 8.5 FT., 9 FT., 9.5 FT., 10 FT.

@ 60°: 9 FT., 9.5 FT., 10 FT.

@ 65° , 70°   ???? (any measurment, your choice)

Colors for Stall Marks: BLACK, GREEN, RED, BLUE

Now you can have the stalls you want on "YOUR" tape. Any Size, Any Angle you choose.  You could order two tapes and have different stalls on each tape. Maybe two tapes, 90 degree on one and 60 degrees on the other. You don't have to have 4 stalls. Maybe one stall for night work. Custom markings for warehouse-pallets, truck-RV parking etc.

IDEA: (!?!?!!?) I have some 165 meter tapes (330') that i ordered for foreign countries that never developed. They make a very good guide for painting long lines. you'll never use them for layout, so doesn't matter if they get paint on them. I would price them at $50. or with a reel $60.

Tapes come ready for "hook-up" to the Big Foot. Or a "hold-on-strap" for person holding tape.

PRICES:

200 ft. - $110.oo....5 LBS.

300 ft. - $120.oo....7 LBS.

SPECIAL: 1-200 ft. and 1-300 ft. Your choice of stalls. Maybe different stalls on each. Maybe one in Inches and one in Tenths of a Foot. If you have one of each, you will use the 200 ft. 75% of the time. A lot more convenient, you don't have to drag the reel around with you !!!!!

A 2015 SPECIAL.. 1 EA. (1-200 & 1-300), YOUR CHOICE OF STALLS ON BOTH.. $200.00 (save $30.00)

**These tapes are for layout only. They don't stretch, and won't hold any body or two people tuging on them, pulling a weight around, especially when it's extra HOT. The colors will fade, they ARE in the sun all day. I always cleaned my tapes in the spring with a mild solvent and remark all the colors that needed it. "Hint" I did have several tapes break with lots of layouts. When this happened I used them for a line to follow when painting long lines. They take a wind pretty good and lay flat. Plastic doesn't last forever. Take care of your tools and they will make you money.

Catalog - The Big Foot Layout Tool

Hi, Thanks for finding  my web site!


HAVE YOU EVER NEEDED HELP LAYING OUT A PARKING LOT, BY YOURSELF ?

HAVE YOU EVER NEEDED HELP MEASURING MORE THAN 50 FEET BY YOURSELF ??

HOW DO SNAP A CHALK LINE BY YOURSELF ??

IF THE ANSWER IS YES OR ??? TO ANY OF THE ABOVE

A "BIG FOOT-WEIGHT" WILL SOLVE ALL OF THE ABOVE !!!

I know....I know...I know..Everybody has a "whatcamacallit" that works perfect. Let me ask you this... Do you have to bend over to move it ? Two hands to move it ? Is it in more than one piece ? (moving the string/tape and the weight) Can you snap a 100 ft. chalk line ? Can you pull a 300 ft. tape tight, with it ?? Can you stretch a string line for painting 5 + double row lines, with it ?? How much room does it take up in the truck/trailer. How long does take to put it together?? With a Radius Tool, 30 ft. Chain, you can layout a curved parking and snap lines as you work, by yourself. !   

NO HAMMERS ----NO NAILS ---- NO BAND AIDS----MADE IN AMERICA !!

This is the product that we're known for. "OVER 23 YRS". There's one in every US.State. It's the perfect tool for when your laying out pavement markings by yourself or wanting to increase your productivity when working in pavement layout teams. It comes with a Carabiner to attach to the all-thread to find angles and to draw circles or a radius.  It CONNECTS great with the most products listed in our other catalog sections. Maybe a Pre-Marked 200/300 ft. Stall Tape. It was designed to help "YOU" when working alone. The Big Foot Layout Tool is available by itself or can be purchased with our other tools to make "Combo's" and save you cost.

I would like to make a comparison for you .!.!. Wink The Price of Big Foot is: $125.00. If you had a layout job come up and you had to hire a person(s) to help for a couple of days @15.00 per hr. for 8 hrs. = $120.00. OK maybe not one day but after the job is done and he leaves .. maybe a good worker maybe not.. DID THEY SHOW UP FOR WORK, AS ASKED ??... Your out the money ... plus taxes, etc.. Money mouth If you had that Big Foot at $125.00, It would be around "FOR EVER" and if you take care of it and don't leave it on a job site it will last for ever. It will pay for itself in a couple of days.... depends how much you use it .. a month tops. If you work alone, you have to have something to help, it will save you time .. and you only bend over 1/2 the time. "To snap the lines".  Haven't figured that out.

The Big Foot was changed a bit in 2007 from a solid piece of steel to two, 1" x 5" x 7" steel plates. This makes it a bit larger and it weighs more too. (22lbs.) It still has rubber sole with the metal snap for attaching any item and holds it to the pavement surface. It's not painted but is covered with orange duct tape for visibility. A foam grip has been added for comfort. Extra plates can be ordered for extra weight, (11 lbs.ea.) easy to ASSEMBLE.

With The Big Foot you can attach a 300 ft. (it's ready to be attached) Pre-Marked Surveyors Tape (PMT) and it will hold it tight and straight. It will allow you to snap chalk lines at least 100 ft. You can with 2- Big Foot's, use them to hold long lines, one on each end, to paint 4 to10 or more, double row stall lines. I have pictures of two stripers, on riders, using 4 Big Foots, 2 long lines, painting 10 dlb. rows. (This is getting it done fast. (IDEA!!) With a two man crew, one can snap lines (alone) and the other ('s) can start painting.

I've talked to stripers & layout people that have used just about everything and anything to help them work alone. And NOT ONE, that has purchased a Big Foot, said that their weight was better. Read the comments!! In fact they told me that wished that they had purchased one a lot sooner. It will increase your productivity. At lest 2 times faster for moving the weight while snapping lines alone. One point, you don't have to bend over to move it... The metal snap lets you change tools easier. MOST TOOLS COME READY for hook-ups. And with the Cross/Arm, you can have the other tools with you. Check out the the combo pictures. Maybe, just maybe, you won't leave something on a job site. I fix an old tool bag to fit on the Big Foot to hold extra chalk, site plans, pencil-paper, water bottle, etc., anything is better than walking back to the truck to check out site plans.

I have a layout manual that is the way I did things. Not "THE way" but "MY way". I've been collecting ways to do things for yrs. When I started in 1969 there was "no way" to do anything. No standards. BELIEVE ME ! No stencils to buy. No books on how to paint a straight line. No book on dimensions or How to get a 60 degree angle (??). (High School Geometry..yikes!!). I've been going to the Pavement Expo's since they started and pick up something from somebody or a class "every time". The manual will help and have suggestions. If you would like a manual they come FREE on Request, with a Big Foot purchase. (A free manual with the Radius Chain Gang Tool (RCGT), ALSO.)

ALSO ATTENED THE STRIPERS ROUND TABLE.. LOTS OF QUESTIONS ANSWERED THEIR.

PRICE: The Big Foot....$125.00....25 lbs.I'm using usps "flat rate" for shipping & handling ... $15.00 (saves min. about $10.00.

Extra Weight....$25.00....12 lbs.

Big Foot Layout Tool

If you hire a part time employee for 1 or 2 days of layout, at $8.00 hr.= $128.00.(maybe $9.00=$144.00) If you buy a Big Foot @ $125, it's with you for ever, (if you take it home each day). That Employee might not even show up the next day. (??)

Some Comments from Big Foot Owners !!! (Ask Robert Lilies!!)
-------------------********************----------------------

9-22-09: I had call from a customer in Ohio and he wanted 4 Big Foot's, with the Extra Weights. I asked: "How are you going to use the 4 BIG FOOT's ?" He was doing a very large warehouse and need to stretch a string line 500 ft. on a sealed surface (slick). Extra weight on each end. He took the Big Foot's apart and added an extra plate to each. Now, each weighs 33 lbs. He did some layout and put a BIG FOOT on each end (500 ft.). After a week went by I called to see how it worked out and he explained:

He used a rider and moved the weights without getting off.

He did 122,000 Ln. ft., in 3 days, by himself. Nice "PAY-DAY"Money mouth


A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT Surprised

Have you ever seen a "Righty" Hand Tape (?), I have some ! There 30 ft., w/lg. numbers, $10.00 ea. I've been trying to find one for 40 yrs. All hand tapes are for left handed people. If you don't know what I'm talking about.... Take a hand tape (any size) and pull out the tape, if you're right handed, the numbers are up-side-down. Now if you are left handed that's OK. If you are right handed you have to learn to mark left handed or add-subtract up-side-down. I guess we're petty good at that. If you order a Combo, any size, (if you ask) 1- FREE !!!!

--------------------------***************************------------------------March 9th 2015

Lee, a Customer from Canada: I bought last year 2- Big Foots. I love them to death! They save a lot of hassle. I would like to order 2 extra plates........ (He must pull a lot of long lines. I never had to add extra weigths to my BF's.)

CustomerComents: March 12, 2010

Hi Bill, My name is Lloyd with "Integrity Striping LC". I have bought or ordered, well this will be my 4th Big Foot Layout Tool. You make an outstanding product !! I would like to get a couple of spools of the woven cotton string also. (new string for chalk box) If you would, please call me. Thanks, Lloyd


FROM "MO" IN CASPER WYO. I can't begin to tell you how much time I have saved since using the Big Foot. My husband was very "Skeptical" of this yesterday when we to work on a layout together, he was "truly amazed". The chain ("Radius Tool") makes angle marking a breeze and I Personally love the Pre-Marked Tape, no more hunting for numbers (!!) and being able to snap lines with "ONE" person is Great !!


ONE MORE :)..... FROM WOODY IN OKLA. I just did a truck stop job: added 200 new spaces @ 65 ft. long ea. and removed 23 spaces. I did it alone in about 18 hrs. including the layout. It would not have been possible to do it without the Big Foot, much less in 18 hrs.


ONE MORE...this is a good one for the lady/office managers/helper..etc...Smile

Hello Mr Feldman....

We recently purchased a BIG FOOT - our first. I have to tell you - it is really great! I currently hold the positions of Company President, Wife, Mother, Office Manager, Sales/Marketing/Customer Service..... Your tool Has eliminated my LEAST Favorite title - that of "Chalk Line/String Holder" !! We look forward to using more of your products in the future ! Again, Thank you !
