Guess what I purchased on Friday. Yes, a new used loom. The man that showed it to us really had no clue about it. He said it is his wife's and she was not there to answer questions. He thought it was custom made?? It has Sanjo on the side. If you look at the far end you will see Emma. She is very unhappy. I had to move her recliner chair out to make room.
I looked them up and the only thing that I found were a few looms (not like this one) and a huge tapestary loom. So you decide. I like it right now. It is soooooooooo heavy. It is eight harness and 12 treadles. 57" weaving width. I have found only 2 things wrong with it so far. The headles are not in a metal frame. It has a metal bar that slides int a slot in the wood harness. It is missing 2 top metal bars- not a biggie.
Then I just noticed that the rachet dog leg thingie is missing. The ratchet is there but the handle to advance is not. I don't think that is a big thing either. I hope?
I almost forgot. It has 2 warp beams in the back and a real neat break and built in handles. Also a raddle that attaches to the front beam or should it be the back. I have it on the front right now. Now to clean her up.
Pardon the mess. I just got things arranged and now no room again.
