I bought this stand 4 years ago and have used it 3+ hours almost every single day (yes, I’m an avid needlepointer). About 3 years into use the height adjustment screw started cracking. It never fully broke, but because it was cracked the hold was weakened so every few days I had to loosen the - oddly - very tight screw fixture and raise it back up. The downward movement was imperceptible until I realized my hoop was almost touching my legs. Last week the plastic bit covering the metal bit holding the hoop clamp to the top of the stand cracked and a small piece fell off. I noticed my hoop was wobbling a bit and when I turned it around to look I saw the crack. My husband looked at both issues and tried to jerry-rig the height screw, but no joy. When he saw the latest plastic crack he said “buy another one.” So I did.
I think 4 years of overall great functionality is totally worth $95! It’s a very stable stand, but very light weight. Hubby bought me an 8 inch lighted magnifying glass with a c-clamp that fits great on this stand. Even with the extra weight of the magnifying glass I never had a problem with the stability of the stand. The clamp that holds my needlepoint hoop has a metal tooth locking mechanism to adjust the angle of the hoop. And then the whole thing turns 360degrees for easy access to the back of my work. And the top of the stand that holds the hoop pivots side to side - possibly 360degrees, but I’ve never tried moving it that far…
I love this stand, and as I said, I’ve gone ahead and bought a second one now that the first is slowly dying. It’s worth every penny!
