Sabina Folding 33" Loom

Comments

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.

HI Joan! I am in NM also. One of my students bought a loom that sounds a lot like yours...hmmm??? She is wanting help getting it to weave. It seems the harnesses are not returning as they should so she cannot make the second shed. I imagine the set up got messed with or it is getting caught. I am hoping to get over to help her soon and was wondering if you might have any advice/photos/manuals/diagrams to help us. oh the loom is a Sabina 33'

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

HI Shanny,

I too am looking for any information on this Sabina Loom? Photos, Manuals, Diagrams, advice? If you could possibly share...any info would be appreciated. I am trying to help a new weaver set this loom up. She found it at a Thrift store and the harnesses are not returning as they should be...?

Thanks so much, 

Hetti

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.

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

Hi 

A new weaver has asked for my help with setting up this loom she found at a thrift store. As I am not familiar with these looms I was hoping you might be able to guide us a bit on the set up of the loom. Specifically the pulley system for the Harnesses. I see that you have sold the loom , but any photos, drawings etc would help

Thank you, 

Hetti
