Robust, but problems with palette

This is a nice robust easel that holds large panels quite steady. Its main disadvantage is the difficulty of fixing a large palette to the very narrow tray. Because of the narrow width, the setup is unstable. You basically have to clamp a palette onto the tray, an altogether messy procedure. Also the mechanism for holding the canvas is good for holding a stretched canvas, but can get in the way when you are working with small panels.
