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.

Bought a 10 drawer plan chest for personal use. The 2 Steves that run the co. could not have been more helpful - & kind. They went way beyond the necessary 😊👍👍👍👍 The product is excellent; exactly what I needed, to resolve ALL my art materials. 🎨🖼

I made enquiries before taking the plunge on purchasing my new A0 Mutoh draughting machine and board. Steve R was most helpful throughout the whole process and the delivery was much earlier than expected. The equipment is brilliant. I mounted the drawing board on to my old stand which admittedly struggled with the board as it was a great deal heavier and better than my old one. I discussed the situation with Steve T who was able to provide me with additional parts for my stand so that the stand would do the job. I can't fault these guys, they have been helpful throughout. From my experience, as an Architectural Practitioner, I can highly recommend using The Big Orchard - as I will be in the future!

First class service - will use again. Friendly answers to questions over the phone; packaging and delivery first class too - unlike my amazon experience for the same product...

Excellent service all round. I ordered and received a beautifully engineered A1 draftsman desk with stand. It is solid but not heavy. A perfect addition for my studio. Quality is robust.

A3 Priory Drawing Board - I have been using an A1 drawing board from Orchard for many years for professional garden design work and it is really robust. I needed a smaller board for a new design project I'm working on - I wanted it to fit on my desk alongside a laptop, to work at a very small scale on A5 paper. I was a bit hesitant about buying a small drawing board as I needed it to have the same qualities as my large one and cope with accurate technical drawing. I've only been using it for a short time, but I'm very pleased with it. It takes a while to get used to moving from A1 to A3, but I can't fault the parallel motion. I have used it at several different angles and the only issue I've encountered is I find it a little tricky get it to lie flat for storage. I think I'll get used to that though, and overall I give Orchard 5 stars as usual for a high quality product.
