Default Masking easels

Hi everyone,

I'm gradually getting together all the darkroom kit, I found a secondhand easel on eBay and I have noticed that the blades and edge of the frame do not sit flush with the metal base, so the paper isn't held completely flat in the easel. (see photo)

I haven't actually tested this yet, but I thought the whole point if the easel is to hold the paper flat?

I'm guessing that this is important to get the sharpest image?

So is an better quality easel something worth investing in?
