Comments about Alvin American-Style Draftsman's Chair:
I ordered this Draftsmen chair after not being pleased with the ergonomics of an adjustable "standing" chair from another source. This Draftsman chair combines the best features of both a stool and a chair that enable me to stand-with-support when desired, and also adjust the height and sit with my seat and back fully supported when required. Spending hours photo-editing after an event is much easier and still fun, as it should be, when I have the flexibility, support, and even comfort of this chair. Assembly was very easy and only took a few minutes. Having the option of fixed casters (my choice) or wheels is real plus. The swivel, range of height adjustment, and foot ring all contribute to the ability to customize your position. There is nothing about this chair that is lacking and no feature that is not well executed. I'm very pleased with the value and functionality.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

height not accurate. but well made
Chair does not go as low as listed. The lowest setting for the seat height is 25" It is very comfortable and the footrest is great. This will work nice for my easle work, but not my drawing table, unless I put a couple of 2x4s under the legs of my table. be sure to keep the wheels locked if you are going to be getting up often. The wheels roll really fast on my hardwood floor. WEEEEE!!!It was easy to assemble because I am good at figuring out mechanical things, however, the directions were lacking and not clear. just blown up diagrams, no words.

Very comfortable for long hours of work
from a room with no windows
This chair is really well constructed from quality materials. Its very comfortable (almost too comfortable) so long hours sitting at the drawing table are no longer a chore that I dread. Just the thing for a sore back once you get the adjustments dialed in. Its very stable and easily assembled in minutes. My only complaint, and its a small one, are the locking levers on the casters. They stick out so far that they are easily stepped on and I'm always finding one caster locked when I want to move to chair. Kind of defeats my choice to use the casters rather than the glides but this alone is not enough reason to knock off a star.
