I am preparing to part with an old friend in order to buy a Macomber and thought I would post here in the event any of you are looking for a special loom. Here are the details:
Norwood 40" 8-shaft cherry floor loom - Solid, super-size cloth and warp beams, a ratchet brake system that needs no adjustment, an excellent shed and extra long weaving space. The floating lamms, jacks and harness tracks are constructed of wood, allowing for quiet operation. Sectional warping rails. Beautiful craftsmanship and top grade cherry wood. One reed and lease sticks included. Weaving width 40"; number of shafts 8; number of treadles 12; number of heddles 2000 (1000 more than new); overall width 47"; depth open 42"; depth folded 31-1/2"; height open 39"; height folded 45-1/2"; depth between reed and breast beam16-1/2". Weight approximately 175 lbs. (New birch looms are 150 lbs.). Excellent condition. Email with questions at Margaret@heritageyarns.com or leave message at (601) 956-1478.
