light tables simply add light so the person tracing can see the original details - as the replies said, a window is just as good. The image is transfered at the same size for reproduction.
The artograph can enlarge an image to the wall to be traced at a bigger size - depending on how far you place the artograph from the tracing source (generally a chalk board or smooth wall surface.

Subject: Light tables
I am purchasing a light table for the purpose of tracing.
I see most 16x18 tables are around 150.00
Does anyone use the artograph tracer 2 that costs around $50.00?
It is for tracing so I am wondering what the difference is.
I'd love to save the money but don't want to find out later that I should've gone for the other ones.
