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.

Helpful and friendly service - they actually rang me to check that I was OK with a delay of a few weeks due to back order, but that had already been made clear on their well-set-out website. I was content to wait because the item in question is hard to find anywhere else. The goods arrived when they said they would, and I am happily using them!

The A0 Ackworth drawing table is a great piece of kit. I ordered an A0 papryoboard cover around the same time and there was an issue with the manufacturer caused by the Covid pandemic. The manager took the time to call me personally to apprise me of the situation. It took me around 5 months to get my cover, but this was by no means the fault of Big Orchard which shipped it to me the moment they received it from the manufacturer. Friendly and courteous service is always appreciated, thank you.

I discovered this place when I needed a new covering for my large drawing board. Their communication and service is excellent. What is more, they are in Yorkshire.

Ordered a drawing board - great price and quality. However, I lost a screw on footing for it, and they quickly sent me out a new one at no charge! - excellent customer service. Thanks!

I’m very pleased with my purchase (A1 plan chest) which is well made and looks great. The service and delivery were very good too which included the item being carefully positioned in my art studio. I would highly recommend The Big Orchard.
