Sorry if this has been addressed before. I couldn't find a definitive answer in the search. I'm wondering if any of you industrious folks has successfully built a 4 blade easel. It seems that some other purchase always trumps this one. I love my Saunders for smaller prints but the cost of a large one makes me weep. I'm pretty sure I can channel a hardwood frame with a router and get it flush to a base. It's those darn laminated blades I cant find a replacement for. They have to be rigid and un-tweakable but flat enough for a clean edge. And tell me if this is folly. My adventures in making a printwasher ended in a lot of money wasted on lexan and industrial adhesives and cost more than the secondhand Salthill I found later. Thanks
