  2. It should have provision for quick height adjustments.
  3. It should have provision for fine height adjustments.
  4. The top should be able to be swivelled horizontally.
  5. The top should have provision for adjustment to accommodate different sizes of ceiling boards.


  1. Make free-hand pictorial sketches of two possible designs of the stand.(8 marks)
  2. Select one of the designs in (a) above and make a refined pictorial drawing. (14 marks)
  3. Make detailed exploded sketches of the mechanism used in considerations (2), (3) and (5) above.(13 marks)
