  • Worth every penny

    I was a bit wary of forking out the cash to get one of these boards, being young and new to the career (i.e. poor!), but I have to say it's been worth every penny. I found them absoloutely idiot proof and my first attempt was a success, and I haven't gone back to gum paper since!!

    One tip is to get yourself a rubber camping mallet; the heavy weight and the cushioned blow makes knocking in the pegs a doddle (I seem to take less time doing it than the chap on the video anyway!) and the paper is safe from tearing (the result of a hard hammer).

    I now keep three boards, two 1/2 imperials and a 1/4. Phil (Stafford) on 30 Jun 2008

  • Very good

    Can be a bit tricky to get the paper out of the grooves after it's dried a while, but overall an excellent product Lisa Cirenza (London, United Kingdom) on 8 Jul 2012

    Ken Bromley's replies: Hi, if you try lightly sanding the stretcher in the grooves, this should remove any excess varnish which could be causing the paper to stick.

  • Best stretcher of them all - Perfect Paper Stretcher 9.5"x13.5" (1/4 Imperial)

    This is the best paper stretcher I have ever used and I have tried many. The paper is tight and solid which eliminates those annoying ripples. I use all three sizes. Peter Zdenek (Mercerville, USA) on 31 Mar 2012
