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 ordered the A2 Priory Drawing Board Cross-wire and love it. Packaged well and works wonderfully. I am not an architect... I use it for water colour painting as it is wipeable and has adjustable angles, so is is far to sophisticated for my needs rin reality. as I don't use the wire part and level/ruler other than it holds my paper/pad in place. Maybe it would make sense to make a simpler one for artists like me!

Great customer service! We couldn't be more happy with our cabinet that we ordered for our studio. The Big Orchard were so helpful and always kept us up to date :)

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.
