I really like the versatility and size of this easel. It is perfect for my small apartment. It arrived quickly and was easily assembled. I highly recommend this easel. It's a lot of easel for the price.

I have not had this studio easel very long so have not put it through all its paces of positioning. That versatility of vertical or horizontal canvas plus the solid support design is why I chose this model.
It arrived promptly, well packed, and easy to assemble. Just like in my Mabef 27 field easel, the craftsmanship, wood, finish, and design are all done in a thoughtful and professional way. The metal screws, etc., are so much better than plastic.
This is an excellent value at its price. If I were splurging I would get the M18 with the ratchet, although the screw system on the 08 works fine with a little more effort.
Altogether the product and service are very satisfactory.
