To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It will do the job I want it to do, which is for quick sketches and simple plans. I wouldn’t rely on it for dead-on accuracy. It is made of plastic of course, and the straight edge has a little wobble, you need to move it up and down from the the left side to keep it parallel. The triangle works fine with the straight edge. I don’t foresee using the rotating ruler as it is very wobbly and not exact at all.
While being a compact drafting tool set, it is not conducive to quick and effortless drafting. Parts stick and need to be adjusted and re-aligned often which does not facilitate quick drafting of work. Nothing is smooth with this item. Most of it is friction fit. As to storage and portability, it lacks in that design aspect. It’s a puzzle and when put together, falls apart when transported. I’m sorry for spending so much money on something I thought would streamline my work. I will stick to my t-square, triangles and board.
This is a low quality board . The ruler does not glide well in the slots and stutters. The locking mechanism is badly designed as the ruler lifts from the right side of the board when trying to lock it. My unit also came defective as the paper holder would not open due to a piece of rubber that was not glued properly. The reason I gave it two starts is because the price is really cheap for a drafting board. So if you have a one-time project and don't care about quality - it may work for you.
I got this for doing shop drawings of P.I.D.'s and for aligning mattes for my animation work. It appears to be ideal for both applications, is well made and the price is very low. The design is also perfectly tailored for intuitive use, especially how the paper mounts (you do not necessarily have to run around the shop looking for your roll of tape though a use a bit on the opposite corner from the built-in paper gripper).
Have to be handled with care because is not to strong, but is perfect for the job intended. Versatile and accurate. I really love it. I do some modifications to adapt to my necessities and work just amazing. Hard to find sellers to some places so this seller is a jewel for risk to send it on a distant travel to your country so treat him well! REally take a lot of care on the packaging. So it can support the rigor of the travel. So this seller I recommend it 100% is a 5 Stars one and a must have in your favorites. I mean it!
This was a gift and I was told that the picture is misleading. The attachments must be held if you want to use them, which makes this quite cumbersome for on the go use, unless you’re in an ideal environment.
