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.

I used several drawing boards for A3 paper, but all eventually failed because the straightedge was attached to one side of the board and was not sturdy. All also suffered from nonexistent or weak stands for holding the board at an angle. Finally, I found the Big Orchard drawing board and it is the best I have used. The construction is sturdy and the straightedge is similar to the larger boards I used in college. The steel base rests securely on my workbench and the board can be set at various angles as required for drawing or viewing. It is a work of art!

I ordered a drawing board and this is definitely one of the best places to buy professional quality. They delivered it the next day, and took care to make sure I was confident in setting it up. It is great quality. Very impressed with the care they take towards their costumers, I am very confident that if I were to have any problems with it in the future they would be happy to help. Would highly recommend!
