Not quite what I'd hoped for

Comments about Mabef Pochade Box and Tripod:
There are a few glaring problems with this pretty good product. 1. It only opens flat (all the way) as there is no adjustable hinge for the top. This makes the box very heavy and unbalanced on a tripod. 2. The depth of the tripod receiver (for the screw) is very shallow and you will need a very heavy tripod for it to not fall over. This is a very heavy box for its size. 3. It only accommodates 1 (one) 9x12 panel in the storage area. The other 2 slots are for 8x10. And it cannot be adjusted.4. The clamps which hold the panel on which you are painting don't quite open far enough for a true 12 inch panel. You can widen (lengthen) the channel with a rat tail file or loosen the clamp and have it slightly less secure.5. There is no real finish on the box so it will not repel water. Needs to be polyurethaned.6. The palate needs to be varnished before using unless you want it to draw oil out of your paints.7. There's a little twisty thing on the top that I cannot figure out its purpose.8. It does no have a carrying strap (for shoulder) nor does it have rings for this purpose. This is a necessity when it's loaded with paint and mineral spirits.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your candid feedback. The tripod mount is a standard size, you can expect that with your paints and supplies in the box, it will not overbalance. Like all Mabef products, and many other easel brands, this box features an oil finish, and the "twisty thing" on the top can be used to support the lid if the box is open flat on a tabletop. Please know that we want you to have a plein air setup that works for you. If we can assist you with seasoning the palette or even choosing a different product in exchange, we hope you'll feel welcome to reach out to our Product Information Team. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or email@example.com, and they're happy to work with you!
