ASSEMBLE THE SATURN DRAWING TABLE


The Saturn Drawing Table is easy to assemble. All you need is a screwdriver, key, and drill. But you want to make sure you have all the parts before you start putting it together. Flip the frame over, and attach the base pipes. Make sure the longer part is facing toward the front, so it can support the rest of the frame. Attach the rubber feet to the pipes, followed by the adjustment handles. From there, you can attach the drawing board by laying it flat on a blanket or towel and screwing the frame onto the center of the board.


ALVIN PORTABLE STRAIGHT EDGE BOARD


There are times when you need to work no matter where you are, which is where the Alvin Straight Edge Board comes in handy. Start by turning it upside down and opening two feet that will allow it to sit on an incline. The grills on the opposite edges of the board can be used to keep it in place at the edge of the table. Simply move it toward you until they catch at the desired position. The Alvin Straight Edge Board is perfect for on-the-go architectural work, which is why you should consider adding it to your list of tools.

How do I choose a drafting table?

When selecting an architectural drafting table, it is important to assess the ways in which you plan to use the surface. Ensure that the table’s surface area will be large enough to accommodate your activity. Check out the table dimensions to confirm that it will fit in your space. Look for features such as adjustable height and angle that may be useful.

What angle is a drafting table?

The angle on drafting tables can vary. Some models feature an adjustable angle, where the angle may be set from 0 to 45 degrees. Other models may offer a fixed table top angle that cannot be changed. The option to modify the angle allows you to determine the most comfortable setting to perform your work, and it allows the portable drafting table to accommodate different types of activities.
