    I love this parallel glide. It glides nicely and feels solid and durable. I use it for hobby calligraphy and a friend suggested I get a parallel glider. I opted for the best and have not been disappointed. I’m also impressed with Dew Drafting Supplies. Easy order and fast shipping.

    I've had an inferior rolling ruler for a few years and was frustrated each time I needed it because it doesn't roll straight so it basically defeated the purpose. I finally splurged and got the Alvin and it's like night and day. Plus it can help you draw circles and angles (who knew?). I'm very happy with it so far and look forward to using it on lettering projects for many years to come.

    Nice glider, just wish they sold replacement rubber rings.

    This is my second parallel glider of this model. Made in Poland, extremely high quality. The only downside is that the rubber rings on the wheel mechanism seem to dry out over time. Otherwise it is almost a perfect piece.
