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.

          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!

          Comments about Alvin Parallel Straightedge Portable Drafting Board:

          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. :)
