Counterweighted Fixed Angle Easel

Home -- or go to Counterweighted H Frames

A fixed angle counterweight easel that is stable, and simple but gives all the benefits of being able to easily raise and lower the canvas, as it is fully counterweighted using a tried and true simple pulley and weight system.

Advantages over a counterweighted H frame

Cost - it is a significant cost saving. Does not stick out in front. Takes up a little less room than a H frame.

Disadvantages over a counterweighted H frame.

Tilt angle is fixed to a rear slope of 8 degrees, it is not on castors and not so easy to move around the studio.

This is with the tray lowered, The tray will actually go to the ground, but here it is mounted at a higher location on the centre shaft.

Raised, raising and lowering the easel is by one finger, The rear counterweight balances all the weight. The tray simply slides up and down with the canvas attached.

This is my easel. if you look closely I have the outline of the painting on the canvas. The painting is of my daughter in law and is of the photo taped to the canvas

This ACH1600 is limed white, with tray and palette holder. The model is my mum. It is quite a large easel. The tray goes to the floor.

Work in progress. My studio. The painting is half finished, I have added a palette holder to my tray for the tubes of paint, the palette is on the tray, the wet brushes in a plastic bag, to stop them drying out.

Note the painting of our dog "Jessica" on the left FFHV easel, it is also half finished.

When easels are sent to a private home please advise a secure place where the parcel can be left, if no one is home. I can usually predict when parcels will arrive in Metro areas however this is not 100% accurate and cannot be fully relied upon. My carrier will not leave a parcel without instructions to do so.
