Hi I have recently purchased from eBay a very large mahogany countermarch loom. It looks to have been tied up with 4 of the 6 treadles and 4 of possible 8 shafts. It has 8 lamms all on the Same level 8 overhead jacks with centre pivots and a homemade shaft switching device. Having no experience with this type of loom I am really struggling to know how this would be tied up. I have spoken to the chap I purchased it from and he assure me it is a countermarch loom that he made many rugs on in the past but he is not in position to travel to my location unfortunately he was away on holiday when I picked everything up from his brother who was selling it for him.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I would really love to give this a go.
I can post pictures if that helps.
