A few weeks ago I uncovered an old portable sketching easel.
I was looking for some supports to use for an art exhibition and wanted to test some things out. This easel turned out to have the double ended bolt and turn screws missing so was in fact pretty useless. I did contemplate going down to the local DIY store to look for something to fit, but then looking on the internet I discovered that Winsor and Newton still produced the very same easel. I sent off an email explaining what I needed and asked how much a replacement part would cost. They asked for a photo of the easel and a postal address. Two days later with no monies changing hands I was in possession of the very part I needed to make the easel a functional piece of equipment. A big Thank You Winsor and Newton
