Sabina Folding 33" Loom


Posted on Sat, 05/19/2012 - 00:46

Purchased one of these beauties today at an estate sale. It is 34" wide with a rising shed. The ratchet in the middle of the sectional warp beam is metal (and huge!) but the pawl is wood with a small metal plate to prevent wear. I couldn't find out anything about it before purchasing it and it needs some minor repairs, but the movement is really smooth and I couldn't resist. I love the fact that the front beam assembly comes completely of which will make warping easy.

Does anyone have a copy of the original instructions for the sabina loom?  I have the 33" one with the wooden ratchet, but would take any.  I can reimburse for photocopy and mailing, or can handle scanned images

Shanny3 - I pm'd you.  I just got a Sabina  (jack with the metal ratchet) and it came with instructions that I'd be happy to share with you if you still need them.

Mine is in need of a lot of clean up (apparently stored in the attic for 20 years) but the cherry wood is cleaning up nicely and it's pretty sturdy once set up.

Hi kddid, I just acquired a Sabina folding loom and would love to see your instructions if you still have them!  We're trying to restore her and have no idea what we're doing yet...  thanks so much, Donna

I have since sold the loom because I found the ratchet brake in the middle of the warp beam too problematic.
