Help with Old Homemade Loom!
<p>Hello!</p><p>I inherited a loom from my mother. My father bought this loom at an estate sale in the early 1970s. I think this is homemade, as I can not find any maker's mark on the loom. It is a four shaft table loom. I've done a few repairs and gotten it in good working order. I'm a beginning weaver, but am learning! The loom came with a 15 dent reed. It is possible to unscrew the beater and replace the reed, however, I have no way of knowing if any reed I buy will fit. The beater has two grooves in the top and bottom, and the reed has a soldered lip on the top and bottom that help fit it into the grooves so it does not slip out. I don't have a weaving store anywhere near me, so I have to purchase any supplies online. I can upload more detailed photos, if anyone would like to see. I am wondering if anyone recognizes this loom, or if anyone can think of where I could get different sized reeds that will fit. Any advice is appreciated!!</p><p> </p><p><img alt="" height="4032" src="/sites/default/files/IMG_6528.jpeg" width="3024" /></p>
