Welcome to dickblick
Koh-I-Noor's Portable Drawing Board is the versatile drawing board for the office worker, the free-lance designer, the outdoor artist doing perspective drawing, the architect or engineer on location, and many others.
It's constructed almost entirely of feather-light plastic that is durable enough to withstand compass point and continuous use. This drawing board easily fits on a desk, table, or lap.
Features include a paper clamp on the lower right, a paper clamp/scale on left, an automatic locking straightedge with push-button release, guide rails on all four edges for holding the straightedge in either direction, and a vinyl carrying case with handle. Holds paper up to 11" × 17" (28 cm × 43 cm). Use it with or without the optional Koh-I-Noor Drawing Head.
The graduated protractor head locks at any desired angle with automatic settings in 15° increments. Constructed almost completely with plastic parts, it glides across the straightedge quickly and easily, except when the brake mechanism is used, making work like repetitive crosshatching and parallel line drawing quick and easy. Smoke colored.

Excellent non professional system
By Paul Bristol
from Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
Comments about Koh-I-Noor Portable Drawing Board and Head:
I have been using this system for about a year. It is definitely better than a wooden board and T square. I have not found a good use for the scale and protractor on the horizontal bar, but I have never had a scale on any other T square either.The legs that prop up the top of the board are troublesome. I tape them in place and handle with care.Once I learned the sequence for locking and moving the bar and moveable protractor they became automatic. Getting the sequence right insures square and parallel lines.The plastic shipping box is great for storing drawings and the system parts.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It s great
from Three rivers, Ma.
I m a retired toolmaker and tool engineer, I started my training on a large drawing board and drawing machine. I finished on a cad system. I now build Flintlock guns from the 1700s to early 1800s. I make patterns for carvings and engravings then transfer them to the guns. Most of this is done free hand but some can be drawn with the machine, I have a large board but over the years it has become a catch all. I now have cleared a small area for this portable board on the large and it works great.
I would buy this product again
I worked as a draftsman at Boeing in the early 60's and I still enjoy using my skills with this board for projects around the home. Very nice.

Golden Ratio of Drawing Tools

from Phoenix, AZ
Easy and fun to use. Lightweight but strong material. Versatile for my engineering drawings and colored pencil art creations. I'm so happy with this product I can't think of anything negative to say about it. Extremely satisfied. Wonderful!!
"Excellent math aid for child with disability"
from Gilbert, AZ.
I purchased this product for my son whose fine motor skills are affected by cerebral palsy. This drawing board holds his paper firmly in place,and allows him to slide the ruler and drawing head into a locked position in order to draw a variety of geometric angles for geometry class. This product allows him to be successful in a class which is very fine motor skills oriented. Excellent product.
exactly what i was looking for.
great for on site work, great at home.

Having read most of the reviews for the portable drawing boards on the site, I settled on the Koh-I-Noor. I'm really glad I did. It's perfect; easy to use, light-weight yet sturdy, the parallel rule stays parallel and the online customer service and shipping speed exceeded expectations. Though I prefer to use a triangle with my straight edge, I sort of wish I'd ordered the arm/head too, and may yet. All in all, an excellent value.
