An upgraded version of the Lugano Double-Masted Studio Easel with Crank (MBM-02), this version features all the benefits of the original easel plus a convenient crank mechanism that eases adjustment of the working angle. It also includes a crank that adjusts the height of the working area and allows control over canvas elevation, making it especially handy when working with large canvases. This artist's easel is constructed of beautifully oiled, stain-resistant beechwood and has two extendable center poles for stable use with canvases up to 92.5". The poles and canvas are locked in the desired position by tightening a screw in the rear. The sturdy base is supported by four casters and leveling bolts.
