The new Desk Angle Adjustment Mechanism features a front activated- spring loaded lever that allows the user to shift the angle of music from flat-0 degrees to straight up and down - 90 degrees and three angles in between.
The brass handle lever allows the user to lock and unlock the swivel feature.
When the lever is pushed down the desk can be rotated 360 degrees or removed entirely from the brass extension pole.
When the brass lever is pulled up the desk is locked in place and will not rotate or be pulled off the brass extension rod.
This entire mechnism was designed and built by my father-Roland Young of Grand Forks, North Dakota
In 2015 I was commissioned to make a pair of Music Stands for the Salmagundi Art Club of New York City.
The result is this clever mechanism the allows the user to lock the angle of the desk in one of 5 positions. The user can also rotate the desk 360 degrees and lock it at any point.
There is a separate adjustment to lock the stand and a desired height every two inches.
In 2017 and 2018 I worked with my father- Roland Young to design a Music Stand with more features for adjustability.
A customized dedication/name plaque is fixed to the backside of the height adjustment block.
