Description: 

For sale is a Macomber Ad-A-Harness B4D floor loom. Unsure of the age,
perhaps 70's? It's got all 10 harnesses, a double beam on the back, and
comes with several reeds and shuttles. It's in great shape, no warping
and the finish is still smooth and lustrous. It's been stored in a
climate controlled environment. I bought it after graduating school
five years ago with ambitions to use it, but never found the time to get
any projects going. Delivery is possible if the buyer pays for gas and
lives within a 1-2 day drive from Madison, WI.

Comparing this loom to AKL:

This is a very nice loom to weave on, and easier to use on the lap than the 12” AKL, IMHO. Ashford always makes a nice product, and I have not been disappointed with the ASIL. If I could only have one of the two looms, I would probably choose the AKL only because that extra 4 inches makes it more versatile, but I really like this loom!

 

Comparing the ASIL to the Avril Loom:

 

Again, the Avril has those 4 extra inches in weaving width. However, it is similar in length to the Avril, so both are easy to use on your lap. Ashford does make better ratchets and pawls than the Avril loom, which are a bit flimsy. If I could only have one out of the Avril, AKL, and ASIL, my choice would still be the AKL.

 

Having said that, I believe that the best sized loom for the job is the smallest one that will give you the weaving width you need. So if you mostly weave scarves or other small items and don’t have the room for a stand, the ASIL would be a great choice. It is also a bargain, price-wise. And I see it being a fabulous child’s loom, as well as a great gateway drug--I mean “intro to weaving”-loom.

non-folding rigid heddle loom

Width of Loom: 
25.00 in
Description: 

Purchased used in May off craigs list.  Was told it was a 32 " loom with stand, 3 heddles, warping board, boat shuttles, books.  Got a great deal.  Got it home (as i know little about weaving) and one reed says "25" rigid heddle.  Owner must have read wrong.  The deal I got was good even for a 25" so no problem.  I had heard that 32 is kinda hard to get an even beat anyway, so I am only a little disappointed (which I shouldn't be.  $200 for a loom, 3 heddles, stand, warping peg, 2 boat shuddles, pick up sticks, apron sticks...and the list is longer..like I said I got a good deal!!)  Now to warp and begin!!
