Wanted: 20x24 Easel

Postby timcooper » 15 Mar 2023, 21:17

Hello again,

Following up from my request for a 20x24 washer (which I ended up taking the advise of the group and tray washing) I'd like to invest in a 20x24 easel or suggestions for something DIY. I'm currently trying to jerry rig an easel using large rulers but it's not working out well for me.

I've been checking out the usual sites but a large easel is few and far between.

Thanks,
Tim

I use a Saunders 20x24 four blade model as my regular paper easel and it is the best easel I've ever had. And I got it for free because one of the adjustment knobs was broken off and lost in transit. This because a big easel is a fragile thing to ship and requires very sturdy packaging. I made a wooden replacement knob, painted it black, fixed it in place, and everything works. Lucky.

A 20x24 easel has become a crazy expensive thing to buy. I see a Saunders 20x24 at Blue Moon Camera and Machine going for US $700 and a Beseler 20x24 going at B&H for US$1150.02. Yikes!

Yep haha - that's why I'm asking around here.

There are also a couple of eBay but they're in the AUD$1k range too.

I made my own easel, a 12x16 in this case, but can be scaled accordingly. The following hurried pics show the basic construction and may give you ideas if you're inclined to a bit of DIY.
