Call me lazy, cheeky or just plain thick but I'm after knocking up a Draughtsmans Board and can't for the life of me think how one goes together nor find a model to have a look at. I want something that is preferably floor standing, with a tilt platen to take up to A2 and if at all possible, will fold flat for storage.

Anyone have a plan or maybe even a photo or two to get me going?

Once the boards made I can bother you all with questions on how to build what I draw...

Thanks!

Hi Desertbootz,

Why not be real lazy and have a glimp at the small ads. in your local paper. They often seem to be advertised for very reasonable quids. I picked up one in good order on a fold-flat steel stand, complete with parallel motion, for £30 - would probably have cost me more to buy the bits to make one. FWIW.

Cheers,

Trev.

Unfortunately the local ads option hasn't panned out to date but I'll keep looking.

The URL shows something more than I need but useful ideas and yet another useful website for the new bot to spend work hours smurfing.

Thanks lads! :O)
