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.

Super product and very helpful staff
Purchased a six drawer plan chest from them. Great firm. They kept us informed prior to delivery and when it arrived the delivery man was very helpful getting it set up in a tight corner. The plan chest is beautifully made and drawers take plenty of weight of paper and glide smoothly. Good handles that are easy to grab but rounded so they don't catch as you walk past. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them - excellent product and good value for money.

They listen, they REALLY listen.....and then help!
Finally, technical service providers who listen, and provide clear, concise and sound technical advice. Since I arrived in the UK over 5 years ago, I’ve never experienced such typically “Kiwi style” personal service from any other commercial technical outlet. I must give you blokes top marks for the way you do business. It’s been a real pleasure, and a credit to you all. Thank you.
Well done you blokes

Great customer service
I had an issue with an art folder. To be fair the problem was with the supplier, and not The Big Orchard. They refunded me without question. Highly recommended.

Really great service from the folk at Big Orchard - I experienced some trouble ordering online (my bank’s fault, not Big Orchard’s) and they couldn’t have been more helpful in sorting it out. The drawing table is wonderful too. 5 stars!
