Stands FAQ

 

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER A CORNER CLAMP?

Some people like the Corner Clamp for very small pieces, perhaps 6” x 6” or smaller because it grips the bars on only a small part of the corner. This means that the clamp is up and out of the way so that it does not interfere. Your hand will not bump against it.Other people prefer the Corner Clamp because of the strong grip on very larger pieces. It grabs both the side and bottom of stretcher bars at the corner thus providing exceptional grip.Still others like the way it works with scroll bars.

 

WHAT IS THE EXTRA LONG “L” BAR? HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED ONE+

This accessory replaces the “L” bar that comes with your stand and will give you approximately 6 extra inches on the horizontal (where the clamp slides on). If you work in an overstuffed recliner, in a chair with large arms, in bed, or need to reach across any distance, you may want to consider an Extra Long “L” Bar. If you find that you are uncomfortable in your working area, try to figure out why, This accessory may be part of the solution.

Please remember that whenever you change the configuration of this carefully engineered workstand, you may compromise the balance. You may need to adjust for stability.

 

WHAT IS A TAK?

TAK stands for Table Adapter Kit. This accessory changes a floorstand (workstand) into a model that sits on the table. The kit is only replaces the “center” so you will need to use the clamp and base from your floorstand. The alternative is to purchase a second clamp (such as the Corner Clamp) and/or a second base (perhaps the extra-long base). Remember that these two items make great gift suggestions!

 

WHAT ARE THE USES FOR THE HOLES IN THE LIGHT BRACKET?

One of these holes is needed to connect it to your stand. One hole can be used for the (Comb) Accessory Bracket and the other can be used to hold a light. The bar can also be used with the Daylight Double Clip (to hold directions), or the large Daylight magnifier. With these two items you would not use the holes.

 

WHAT LIGHTS FIT THE LIGHT BRACKET?

The Daylight U23000 works well with the Lowery. People have used Dazors as well, especially the gooseneck model. Most lights that have a “thumb” should fit. Always remember to adjust to get the best balance for your stand.

 

HOW CAN I ADD STABILITY TO THE STAND?

If you are unable to secure your Lowery under furniture, you can add stability by adding weight to the base. Some people have used bricks and covered them with needlepoint. Any weight will do, including books, bricks, etc.

 

HOW LARGE A PROJECT CAN I USE WITH MY STAND?
