I hope this is an acceptable place to post this- I'm new here!
Someone local is selling a "Varpapuu floor loom" with an 8' weaving width. It's definitely beyond my skill level right now to be producing/investing in 8' pieces. I am a relatively new weaver using a Leclerc Inca jack loom, but I would love to have the ability to make larger pieces down the road [blankets and rugs], and the price can't be beat [she wants next to nothing for it], so I am tempted to take it and just store it until I can use it. That said, there's very little info in the ad and she claims to have bought it and never assembled it, so I will not be seeing it up and running. I'm hoping someone with more experience can tell me what I should ask/look for and also what model this might be from the photo she provided [from her original purchase] as my attempt to google it has turned up nothing. The only tag on it says "Varpapuu Pieksamaki Finland", no model info.
Any insight you could give me into this mystery Varpapuu would be much appreciated!
