A friend of mine got hold of a redundant dentist's chair with  hand controls to raise and lower the back.   Was able to adjust  to flat out or bolt upright.  

An ordinary  deck chair works very well too especially for binos .;  but a bit awkward to get out of.!

I use a drummers stool, or "drum throne". Works well for me, very portable, and much cheaper than a Mey stool.

Ironing stool for me too. £3 at a car boot sale. I've had it at least 3 years and it's still going fine. I am just about the correct weight... for an aircraft carrier :eek::D

Have to say that my chair has become my most continually used astro item over the years. I wanted a chair that I could perch on comfortably, would be very quick and very easy to adjust (with one hand) for countless incremental adjustments and not just selected height positions and would pack down small / light weight for transporting. So I cashed in on one of these, not necessarily cheap but at least for myself has been truly worth the while. Never thought of doing the ironing with it!

My ironing chair squab also started to crumble after a few months and it eventually gave up the ghost, I have since replaced it with an hardwood oval squab. I am 5-10 and 13 stone, so a little plump :laugh: of course this isn't the reason for the seat breaking :shocked:

If I would of known you this time last year I could have manufactured a 2.5" foam padded seat with durable nylon cover of the colour of your choice!

Damn I wish I would have made one for myself! Unfortunately have changed jobs since then.

Very professional. Looks great, and also looks like it will fold up into a much more compact package than my wooden design

it does fold up michael, the seat will lie back and the legs collapse to make it flat. its a bit heavy though but very strong
