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
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,
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.
Looking for setup instructions for a Finnish friend who inherited this loom from her father but the instructions were lost along the way, any help greatly appreciated, thanks Veikko
I too am trying to help someone get this loom set-up. If you were able to help us and could offer any help in the way of advice, photos, drawing, directions, manuals, :) I would so very much appereciate it. She is a new weaver and she cnat figure it out. I dont want her to get discouraged. She found the loom at a Thrift store so Im sure it needs some tweeking.
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 too am looking for instructions, manuals, photos, insight into this loom. Oh my goodness if you had any info or could send me in the right direction that would be wonderful! The shed is getting stuck/ and Im not sure how to fix it...
Thank you so much,
I have since sold the loom because I found the ratchet brake in the middle of the warp beam too problematic.
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
