A mahl stick is a necessary add on for a lot of artists, giving you support when working on the fine details.
The Westerly Mahl Stick add-on provides a clip on dowel cross-support which connects to the upper canvas clamps across the width of the easel. The mahl stick is attached to the cross-support with the supplied fittings and can slide to the right or left as needed and clipped out of the way or be removed completely when not needed.
The mahl stick comes in a standard size of 1.5m cross support with a 1.5m stick and comes complete with the fittings to mount it to your easel.
The mahl stick uses standard 21mm pine dowel which is available in many hardware stores in lengths upto 2.4m so sizing etc can easily be adapted if you need to enlarge or adapt it in the future.
