H Frame Easels With Counterweight
With Counterweighted easels the painting is clamped into the mounts, then it is easily raised and lowered. The counterweight effectively makes the canvas almost weightless, so you can slide it up and down effortlessly. Perfect for big paintings as you can always have the section you are working on at eye level. All counter weighted easels have a tilt range of plus 5 degrees minus 10 degrees, they fold flat for transport and can be carried by one man. The captive weight can be removed and is in multiple sections for canvases of different weights. Operation by pulleys and wooden counterweight, is light, easy, fast and smooth. Bottom mounts can be raised and lowered on the main shaft separate to the counterweight to allow for lower ceilings. Easel vertical travel is adjustable to suit ceiling height. Locking knobs top and bottom lock the movement rigid, if required. The movement is simple strong and reliable. All easels have lockable heavy duty, rubber tired metal castors with ball bearing pivots . All H frames fold flat for storage and transport. - See the Counterweighted fixed angle easel
With Counterweighted easels you do not need winders or winches because counterweights are, quicker, easier and a lot simpler, to operate.

When easels are sent to a private home please advise a secure place where the parcel can be left, if no one is home. I can usually predict when parcels will arrive in Metro areas however this is not 100% accurate and cannot be fully relied upon. My carrier will not leave a parcel without instructions to do so.
