Hello, hoping some of you are still around. I am getting a Herald loom that was part of an estate of a local lady and I was wondering if any of you have a big loom. I think mine is between 40-48 inches wide. It folds up and I noticed a long metal rod on the diagonal on the outside that reminds me of a strut but it doesn't compress. I hope the people who have it at the shop where I am buying it from (antique shop) know how to colapse it for transport. If not, do any of you know how and is it too difficult to explain over this forum?
