I have decided to sell one of my floor looms to hopefully fund the purchase of a tapestry loom. If you know of anyone who might be interested please feel free to pass along the details.

8 harnesses, 12 treadles
Double warp beams/back beams
Loom folded for storage
12 treadles, easy tie-up!
Lamp, included, mounts to
the right or the left
Tray is handy for
all sorts of things!
The loom has a storage tray and holes drilled in the top of the castle uprights for the swivel pin of an extension lamp. (Lamp also included) The double back-beam is handy to facilitate different warp tensions for weave structures such as warp pile, supplementary warp, Bedford cord and double weave. Each beam has separate tension. The loom bench can be adjusted for height, and has a storage shelf below the seat. The bags are mounted on both sides of the seat and are very handy for keeping shuttles and tools close at hand.
