Glimakra rug loom with shaft switching Rug loom with shaft switching...
Glimakra rug loom with shaft switching Rug loom with shaft switching and warp extender. Glimakra Standard model loom. 47" weaving width, 4 harness, 6 treadle. Loom is in very good condition, and I have been weaving rugs on it more or less continuously for years. It is a counterbalance loom. I have modified it from the Glimakra counterbalance system to one using rollers as per picture. I have also made other modifications to facilitate rug weaving, but in all cases I have the original, unaltered equipment if you prefer it. It has sectional warping and a shaft-switching lever platform, with .4" spacing, so it is set up for 4-end draft and a sett of 5 e.p.i., but this could be changed. Included are bench, 5-dent reed, temple, 2 ski shuttles, so you are ready to start weaving immediately. Loom must be picked up in northwest Florida. Also included, if you like, would be a day of instruction in use of the equipment generally, rug weaving, shaft switching, whatever. $2000 firm. I have more pictures available, and can give you lots of information. Just call me at 850-763-1028 or e-mail (you can see pictures of rugs woven on the loom at emiliepritchard.com). 2016 pics

Leclerc Weavebird 24 Shaft 36" Wide For Sale in Wisconsin $4000...
Leclerc Weavebird 24 Shaft 36" Wide For Sale in Wisconsin $4000 This is an early model Weavebird that's been updated with new cables. It has a sectional warping beam but can still be warped the traditional way. I'm the second owner and have loved the complex weaves made possible by the computer interface but am now ready for a smaller, simpler loom. It comes with a 12 dent reed, sectional warping tension box (removeable) and other goodies. Just ask! From the Leclerc website this description: "Weavebird is a centre closed dobby shedding mechanism. There are no jacks, no lams, no tie ups, no limitations on shaft combinations and no limitations of pattern repeats. Two treadles, hinged from the back of the loom, operate the shedding mechanism. Weavebird controls both the rising and sinking shed so the tension on the warp threads is always uniformly even. Because part of the warp threads rise while the balance sink, the yarn stretch is minimized.The loom has 2 treadles. The right treadle opens the shed and the left treadle closes it. Due to Leclerc's unique Shaft counter-weight design, physical stress to operate it is minimized. The treadling effort to operate those Loom is similar to operating a 4 shaft counterbalance loom." This would be a pick-up only. I can break it down into smaller pieces when it's ready to moveand it's already labeled for re-assembly. I also have photos for assistance. It has a last project on it now if you want to see it work! Cash or money order or Paypal. Would also consider part cash/part trade for a Baby Wolf 8 shaft! Please email or 612-203-3826.

Vintage Walker 36" Weaving Width Counterbalance Loom a...
Vintage Walker 36" Weaving Width Counterbalance Loom a vintage counter balance loom that has been refinished and fully restored. The loom is a Walker Manufacturing Company Loom from Philadelphia Pa. and is in excellent condition. It has 4 harnesses and a 36 inch weaving width. Leclerc sectional bars were added to the back beam, which can easily be removed to return the loom to a plain back beam. Comes with a bench and two reeds: a stainless steel 36.75 inch wide 12 dent and a 40 inch - 10 dent with some rust. The 40 inch reed is a tight fit in the beater but does work. The only change I have made to the loom was the addition of new bolts and wing nuts to the beater to make it easier to change reeds and a new cloth apron. Original bolts to the beater come with. This loom is a perfect fit for someone who is interested in weaving and wants a visually pleasing work of art in their studio. I am facilitating the sale of this loom for a friend and the loom is currently in my studio. She is asking $850.00. I travel once a month on i90 towards Erie and then down i79 towards Pittsburgh and can easily take the loom with me. The overall dimensions are 48.5 inches wide by 43 inches deep and can be disassembled. This does not take into account the brake handle on the back. Let me know if you have any questions or would like to see more images. photo
