The only things wrong with this loom - it's missing the little rubber tip on the back ratchet and pawl handle, and, I was using rubber bands on the back tie-on bar to hold the yarn secure and they dry rotted so there's just a bit of residue on there. There's also a bit of black paint missing on some of the metal pieces. Other than those things, this loom and accessories are fine.
A rigid heddle loom is a wonderful way to learn weaving or good for people without the space or inclination to weave on a floor loom. Because of the portability, you can move the loom to any room of your house and still weave. On the stand, the loom sits at chair level so you don't have to have a special bench or chair. The loom folds forward with the woven item still on the loom so it can be mobile without worrying about messing up your project.
The current retail price for the loom, stand and two extra heddles is $439 - this doesn't include the cost of buying the books. I am asking $350 or best offer for everything.
I’m looking for an Oxaback Ulla 115-125 cm preferably with combination drawloom.
For sale or trade - 45” Leclerc Nilart jack loom with 8 harnesses and 10 treadles (it was made with the option of being converted into a 12 harness but I do not think Leclerc sells that kit anymore). Cloth aprons in very nice shape. Light scratches over parts of the wood. Comes with well over 1,000 inserted eye heddles, 2 unmarked side feed shuttles, 2 sets of lease sticks, and eight 45” wide reeds
1 - 5 dent stainless steel
1 - 8 dent stainless steel
1 - 6 dent carbon steel
1 - 9 dent carbon steel
1 - 10 dent carbon steel
1 - 12 dent carbon steel on loom
1 - 12 dent stainless steel
1 - 15 dent carbon steel
On all of the reeds that have paper wrapping the paper is tattered and missing in some places. One reed is stainless with plastic edging. Most of the non stainless reeds have light rust, again this does not appear to affect the reed quality.
Includes a nice walnut bench with side and under seat storage that was built for this particular loom.
The loom measures 55” wide, 58” deep open to its full depth, 35” folded (these two measurements are without the treadles), 49” tall at the castle, and the breast beam is 34 1/2” high.
From what I understand, the Nilus II was the upgrade for this loom. Priced new the Nilus II, with 8 reeds and a bench, would be over $5,000 ($3,975 for the loom, the reeds are $84 for the carbon steel, $117 for the stainless and a bench to fit this loom is just over $500).
I am asking $1,800 obo for the lot OR I would very much like to trade for a 30” - 36” 8 harness loom. I’ll consider any brand and style of 8h floor loom as long as it falls in that width range.
The loom is currently not warped/dressed so will be easy to dismantle. However, I may be putting a warp on within the next two weeks if it’s still here.
Loom is located near Hickory, NC, about an hour north of Charlotte. I’ll be glad to meet someone within about 100 miles.
I have more pictures. Please msg me and I'll be glad to send them along.

This gorgeous cherry jack loom, with a 60” weaving width, 10 shafts, 16 treadles, double warp beam, and worm gear was custom-made and signed by Gary Swett, Loom Maker, February 1992. It also comes with a matching furniture-grade commuter bench, raddle, lamp holder, reed, and extra wire heddles, all in perfect working order. It weaves like a dream – the action is easy and treadling is light. All the beams are removable for easy threading and tying up of treadles. The loom can be disassembled for transport. With great regret I have to say good-bye, due to space constraints. Located in Waterbury Center, VT Asking $3,500. Buyer is responsible for pick-up or shipping. Please contact [email protected]
36" Leclerc Artisat floor loom. 4 shafts, 6 treadles. Built in 1976. This is a great, sturdy loom, weaves well. It comes with a 5 dent carbon steel reed and 8 and 12 dent stainless steel reed. I am upgrading to an 8 shaft loom and do not have room for both. I am in the Asheville, NC area and could meet within a couple of hours. The shelf on top of the castle is a temporary shelf my husband installed and is not original to the loom. The holes where a shelf had previously been installed were there so he added the wood for me.
