Fine piece of equipment

Comments about Alvin Synchro-Tilt Painter’s Stool:
The Alvin Synchro-Tilt is a high quality machine and good furniture, too. The gas cylinder is strongly built and heavy, with stout seals and very smooth action. The lever and knob are simple and sturdy; built to last. The base (shipped with glides and casters) is structurally one cast piece, with bright steel receiver fittings for the stem and feet. Assembly was incredibly easy. I was prepared to spend an hour putting it together; it took ten minutes. Only four screws in total. Very well designed.That said, we found the plastic seat too hard, and rather too high for my 5'4" wife to use at her art table. It is really made to provide a little rest and support for working while standing. If that is what you need, you will not find a better stool for the price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just the right chair
from Summerton, SC
The seat is a little hard and to tilt the chair, a little wobbly, but once you get it set, it is the perfect height to paint . It really supports my back.
Best Seat for back problems
from East Hartford, CT
Yes, I would recommend this any artist with a back problem...who needs the support and to adjust when sitting is too much and you can lean with slightly sitting /standing position

Solid design - happy customer
from Key West, FL
The stool feels solid, the wheels roll smoothly, and it has enough customization adjustments to make it fit anyone. I chose this for it's low profile (can be rolled right under my desk when not in use) and for it's height range. The tilt seat helps because sometimes I fatigue in one position and a small shift can make a difference.I consider it more of a 'perch' - it certainly isn't a stool you relax on but that should be clear from the size of the seat. It's exactly what I wanted.

I am lost without it
By Ellen Margaret
from El Dorado, AR
I have had this stool for over 5 years. My husband and I are sign painters and we originally bought this for his use. He says the seat is too hard, so now it's mine. I find it very comfortable. It rolls easily [I never lock the wheels] and the height adjustment is wonderful, altho I rarely use the tilt feature. I use it while at the easel and at the worktable. I also stand up a lot, so when I sit here I'm glad to be comfortable. As another reviewer noted, it's easy on the back... it seems to promote good posture. I am thinking of buying another one for an employee to use.

By Fitz @ Taboo Tattoos
from Keyport, NJ
Stool was a snap to assemble had it together in less than 10 minutes. I'll be using this for tattooing so things I found nice were:Plastic surfaces for wiping down cleaning after working.And what I like mostly is the range of height adjustment I can raise the customer chair and lower this all the way to get lower back stuff and then I can lower the customer chair and raise this up real high for upper back, neck.About the only change I may make is the Alvin site had casters with soft wheels. And though we try real hard to keep the floors clean in the winter months people tend to track in sand/dirt.And the hard wheels scratch up the floor when they hit sand.

By Mrs. Colmey
I am an art teacher, and don't sit behind a desk. While teaching from a table, this stool is perfect. It is tall enough to lean on for support, but very comfortable to sit on while grading or while the kids are working indepemdently. It eases back pain from being on my feet all day, and is a guilt-free resting spot. It can be stationary or on casters (which lock), and it raises and lowers, tilts, and is put together so easily. I highly recommend this! I'm thinking of getting another one for my home studio, too.
Great stool for my aching back
By Kathy who sews
from Greensboro NC
I sew at several machine heights & sit on the edge of a chair to ease back pains. This great stool adjusts height easily & rolls well but feels really stable. I'm glad I found it at Blick! Assembled quickly, too.
