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.

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.

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. NO BODY IN THE TAPE BUSINESS KNOWS.??? THESE TAPES HAD TO HAVE BEEN INVENTED BY A LEFT HANDED PERSON. "I'VE GOT "RIGHTY'S" IF YOU ARE PLACING AN ORDER, ASK ME AND I WILL INCLUDE A 30' "RIGHTY" HAND TAPE IN YOUR ORDER!!! .....of course FREE !!!

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"
