I wasn’t happy With the nylon rope or the way the weights kinda swung around. So I’ve started modifying the counter weight system. #1 I built a “weight box”. I just whipped one up out of pine to test this and will eventu...
I have installed the counterweight system and it works. I did it according to the plan. One thing I notice is that the weight swings when I roll the easel around. I’ll probably leave the weights off unless I know I’ll be needing the co...

I have attached the pieces that kind of lock the inner, sliding frame to the outer frame, hinged the base to the frame, installed the wheels on the base, and now have the easel standing. I have clamped a temporary back brace on it while I make the...
