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.

The Big Orchard are fantastic. Really enjoying using a drawing board supplied by them to plan my exciting new project. Steve went to great lengths to make sure I was happy with the board I had chosen. Excellent quality product and the best customer service I've ever experienced. They take a lot of pride in their work and rightly so. Top marks Steve and all the team at The Big Orchard. I never post reviews but really wanted to share what a great experience this has been! Would definitely recommend and would use again.

Excellent service and a lovely plan chest. Sadly it had arrived slighty damaged in transit (not Big Orchard's fault), but they went above and beyond to rectify the problem at our convenience. Thoroughly recommended.

I can't say enough about this company, when I first started in the garden design arena, I purchased an a0 parallel motion drawing board which is brilliant. I have spent hours drafting designs on this board and we see me through many more years. Highly recommended.
