I am picking up an AVL 12 shaft manual dobby floor loom on Saturday, sight unseen. I know it needs dobby bars and have been in touch with AVL, who pointed me to the online manual. The now-owners know nothing about it and were ready to put it out on the street. I can't wait to make it mine!
However: If anyone can help and tell me what I will need to dismantle/move it, I'd be very grateful. Do I need special tools?
