The Challenge-Ferndown version of the popular, lightweight Challenge drawing board from Blundell Harling is slightly more sturdy and versatile than the original. It has 4 adjustable working angles (15, 30, 45 and 60 degrees), as well as being slightly heavier and robust.
It also features a cross-wire parallel motion, which runs on a pulley system allowing a high level of control as well as easy movement. The board also includes a transparent acrylic straight edge with a graduated graphics scale for accurate, technical drawing.
