    I bought this drawing board for my home office to design for my blacksmithing business. I like its portability and its range of adjustment. Works great for drafting and construction design, as well. I would like a bit more info on the adjustment of the parallel rule, but overall I am very satisfied with the product and its reasonable price. [...]I look forward to dealing with you again.

    Its convenient for classroom use, stores easily. But the parallel bar has no ball bearings on the underside of it (like a standard Alvin parallel on a full table would have, so the bar constantly gets drafting adhesive dots stuck under it and they are difficult to get off. It's very annoying

    Comments about Alvin Parallel Straightedge Portable Drafting Board:

    Drawing board arrived in a prestine condition, given the fact that
    It came in a snug fit package. However, the straightedge does not
    Work properly. The two top adjustment knobs are very small and
    they do not hold down the metal pieces on the sides that run through
    The wires on the bottom of the board. On top of that the metal pieces
    I mentioned earlier are sort of long causing the breaking knobs on each
    Side not to be able to run exactly along the sides. Furthermore, the
    Straightedge also fails to run smoothly up and down the board and it also
    doesnt move straight. Sometimes it tends to move only one side and the
    Other side remains on its place.

        This drafting board is solid and durable. The straightedge moves smoothly and the cable system is easy to adjust. The legs lock firmly in place

            Bought this table about two weeks ago and it has been super helpful in all of my drafting work. The shipping exceeded my expectations, as did the quality of the board itself. I recommend this without a doubt!

            the bar is not parallel.
            i won't suggest people to buy it at all. instead,i will recommend Alvin's another item called "deluxe board with straightedge." It performs way better than this one.

                    This product was a bit difficult to get level at first. I am still not sure it will stay level but it seems to be set up now. For the price I sure hope it does the job. That's all I need out of it. :)
