Comments about Gagne Porta-Trace Mini-Sketch Projector:
I bought this device to use in roughing out shapes for figurative drawing. I need to be able to adjust the projector image bigger and smaller, depending on the reference image. I realize this item was inexpensive, but this was not at all what I hoped it would be.This mini overhead projector was supposed to be adjustable. I was not able to adjust the lens at all. Instructions were minimal (and should have been, for such a simple tool). The only way I could get a clear image was to station the device about 6 feet from the wall, which magnified my image to the size of a human head. If I moved it closer, the image shrank a little, but got blurrier and blurrier.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. This projector is adjustable – the image size can be made larger or smaller by moving the projector nearer to or farther from the projection surface. The lens barrel will turn to focus the image. However, we understand if you feel this product won't meet your needs. One of our Customer Care Representatives will be in touch to offer further assistance.

This projector is great for personal use. It is easy to use and light weight. It is fully adjustable and works like a charm. It does recommend that you protect your art work from the heat that the light bulb creates. I surest putting your art work under a piece of glass to protect it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
