The mast of the Santa Fe III is self-contained in its own box construction, and slides upward without the fuss of additional bolts and knobs. A marine-style, single-masted winch raises and lowers canvases up to 250 lbs (91 kg) with ease.
A deluxe, 26" wide painting tray offers two 1 quart stainless steel canisters (included), and a bubble level. Non-skid rubber grips secure paintings on the tray. Double-laminated quad base and side frames.
This easel offers a variety of settings for sitting or standing, plus angle setting. It folds flat for easy storage. Ships partially assembled. Box dimensions are 77" × 30" × 10" (196 cm × 76 cm × 25 cm).
Optional Set of 4 Plastic Casters

Optional Set of 4 Rubber Casters
Set of 4 rubber casters (2 regular and 2 lockable), makes it easier to move an easel around within the studio, even while it is in use.

Comments about Best Classic Santa Fe III Easel:
I like the quality craftsmanship that when into building this easel. I guess you get what you pay for. Everything assembled perfectly and was easy too! Packaging and delivery was great. I love the solid oak hardwood knowing it will last my lifetime...it's a nice show piece as well. I also like the crank to raise and lower the canvas. I ordered the hard rubber wheels which attach by screwing in 4 screws on each caster. Do yourself a favor and order these, you won't have any regrets when it comes to moving it around.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great once-in-a-lifetime easel
from Ajijic, Jalisco Mexico
Packaging was fantastic! My easel had to be double shipped, to a foreign country, and it arrived without a scratch. Easy to assemble and a joy to use. The only complaint I have is that the rubber casters sold with it do not fit the easel. I had to have a secondary base made by a carpenter that the casters would attach to and then the whole thing attached to the easel. Had I been in the states, I would have sent the $60.00+ casters back but that was not possible where I am. The easel is wonderful, but if you plan on moving it around, DON'T buy the rubber casters sold with it.
I absolutely LOVE my Sante Fe III.
from Gilbert, AZ
I was looking for a solid H-Frame Easel. That is exactly what I received with the Best Sante Fe III from Richeson Art (as a gift on Christmas). It is sturdy, heavy duty, and actually easy to assemble. The wench is nothing to be intimidated by either. The directions are easy to follow.Although it is not advertised as such, it can and will (I would only do this with light to medium weight board and canvas) angle to a vertical 0 degrees. This was something I was looking for and settled for not having. However I was pleasantly surprised once it was all set up that indeed it did result in a 0 degrees, perpendicular to the wall.***It also comes warrantied for LIFE! Anything breaks, the company replaces the part for free. You can add wheels! They are Rubber and also heavy duty and lockable.The easel easily can be used to paint down low (even with smaller canvases) as well as up high. All I did was flip the small canvas base support over and use it as a top support while sitting lower. Easy peasy!Highly recommend!
Best Easels are made of the highest quality solid red oak in Kimberly, Wisconsin, USA. All Best easels have a lifetime warranty and are a great choice regardless of what medium or size you work in.
