Horn Hilo Overview
The Horn Hilo is the table that's taking the Sewing, Patchwork and Quilting community by storm! Something that we've been asked for over and over again in the past is a large work surface that has the ability to have its height adjusted. From first viewing what's immediately obvious is the quality and strength of it its build, it has the same 1" thick table top as the Stella unit, this gives true support and strength when heavy duty use is required and it has a durable ABS knock resistant edge to put up with years of use. It's finished with a hard wearing, fresh and tasteful Beech veneer, the main construction is of strong steel covered in a home friendly cream anti-bacterial powder coating to keep it clean and sterilised and its fitted with easy mobile lockable wheels, which again are of a commercial grade finish. It is capable of adjusting from a comfortable sitting height of 70.5cm to a full 97.5cm standing height (approx), the overall work area is 102cm (40") x 152.5cm (60") something that will impress even the mightiest of its users. The height is adjusted simply by turning a crank handle which is situated on the side of the table, this crank adjustment has a high turn ratio which allows the user to smoothly and easily raise or lower the table even whilst weight is on it, be it a light project or even with heavier items such as sewing machine equipment. The hand crank system is simple but very effective, foolproof and extremely reliable with far less to go wrong, this will ensure years of trouble free service for which Horn has become renowned. But what if space is a problem? No problem another great feature of the Hilo is that it allows the table to tilt upwards out of the way so when not needed it can give back valuable floor space to your room, once up it can be used as a handy design wall. As an extra there is also available a tailor made hobby / cutting mat which can be used for rotary cutting and will accept pins to hold your projects in place, this can be purchased together with the Hilo or at a later date depending on your needs.
