Here is a little history of the loom taken from Janet Meany's Weavers Friend website.
"Another model was the Cambridge loom with four shafts and six treadles. It wove up to 45" wide and was recommended for teaching weaving in schools and colleges. After Reed's death, Paul Linker continued to build the looms until his death in the 1970s. The looms are no longer being manufactured."
I really like old looms. They are good and sturdy! I often wonder who the other weavers who wove on them before me. Wouldn't it be wonderful if old looms could talk?
