Comments about Helix Parallel Straight Edge Drawing Board:

I am an architect that often travels and needed a small drafting board that would allow me to design work on 11x17 paper format - so being small was a good thing. The size and design intent was really good BUT all parts are plastic and the parallel bar is very flimsy in that there is little to no structural support to stop the bar from bowing up and allowing your triangles to slide under it while working. After one day the wood portion of the parallel bar fell off which was installed with double back sticky tape. Also the design is good -
the problem is that whoever constructed the board just didn't do a good job making sure screws were going in straight and that the parts were installed square and flush etc. So - at this point, I am not so sure how long it will last, but for the low price and the fact that my number one need was a small hard surface to sketch and draw on while on the go - it does that perfectly fine. Really like the design intent but the execution of putting it all together and providing structural integrity of the parallel bar just isn't there.
