Reversible Drawing Tables

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by StornowayMalcolm, Jun 17, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    Does anyone know of a manufacturer that supplies tough, high quality reversible A2 Technical Drawing tables. We currently have 25yr old British Thorntons ones which are excellent but getting a bit weary now. I have seen quite a few recently manufactured ones and they all start to fall apart within months of use. The problems seem to be cheap, thin chipboard tops and drawing boards which are unable to hold a screw or the reversing pivot and cheap parallel slides & mechanisms. Why can't they use ply or blockboard it would save a fortune in the long run? Looking forward to ay advice.
