Is the straight edge removable?
Yes. It is easy to remove the straight edge from the wires.

What is the difference between Counter-weight and Cross-wire parallel motions?
Counter-weight parallel motions rely on a weighted mechanism to stop the straight edge sliding to the bottom of the board when the table is at an angle. Cross-wire (or continuous wire) parallel motions rely on friction to grip to board. Read our article on What is the difference between parallel motions? for more information.

Can I use a compass with Papyroboard board cover?
Papyroboard is a hard wearing vinyl material which protects your board surface. Although it is hard wearing, compass points may still find their way through if used regularly. We would recommend a cutting mat to protect the board surface.

An excellent product and a brilliantly helpful company. When we realised that we would prefer a higher grade board, Big Orchard were extremely helpful. They dispatched the board we wanted and arranged the collection of the original board in exchange. Great customer service, many thanks.

I am very satisfied with the customer service from the Big Orchard company, had a concern with my A3 lightbox and spoke to Matt, who arranged for a pickup. I was impressed by the speedy return of the light box which came back as good as new.

As a drawing board newbie I didn't know how to use my drawing board or how to store it. Steve and team were very kind and took their time to talk me through how to use it and look after it. The customer service as we well as the products are great.
