Klopfenstein KS100 Studio Easel - Klopfenstein welded steel art equipment was conceived and designed in conjunction with art professors and students at a major state university. Rigid designs effectively eliminate wobble, twisting and tipping. Quick, secure adjustments easily handle most any painting size or position. Rugged construction makes it last! The Klopfenstein Studio Easel has a strong, rigid "H" frame design. The "Auto-Locking" canvas tray adjusts up or down at the touch of a control trigger and instantly locks in place when released. Double mast extends to hold up to 72 inch paintings at the desired tilt angle. Upper clamp securely holds the canvas in place. Heavy steel lever handles control tilt angle and mast height. Crafted of extra heavy 3/4 inch steel tubing, the KS100 is electrically welded to last. Easily folds flat for compact storage. Weight is 40 lbs, 58 inches high, 29 inch X 33 inch base. Staff photographer David Hoffend is shown in the second photo; to help give an idea of the scale of this easel. David is 6 ft 1 inch tall. Klopfenstein art furniture is made to order. Please allow 2-3 weeks for fabrication and shipping time. They are worth the wait! These can be shipped via UPS; due to the size and weight the UPS cost is $49.95.
