The Beaver Loom Co. was built in Granger Indiana around the 1970's. We would compare this to a Schacht Mighty Wolf as it is solid Maple, has a similar style Jack System and Shaft Guides. It's Tie-Up system is similar to a Norwood Loom and the Brake System is a Ratchet and Pawl system, similar to a LeClerc. It is quite heavy, like a Floor Loom but folds up like a Mighty Wolf. Folding is a bit cumbersome, but it is not a traveling loom, so it really only folds to get it into your house. She weaves as beautiful as the Mighty Wolf does. She is completely restored and tested with two warps run through her. The matching Bench is adjustable in height and angle. It has a floating tool tray that sits in the top of the Castle.
The Loom includes the following:
Matching Maple adjustable Bench
Maple Tool Tray
12 Dent Reed
Lots of Flat Steel Heddles
LeClerc Boat Shuttle & 4 Bobbins
LeClerc Ski Shuttle
Heddle & Reed Hooks
2 Lease Sticks
Fully Warped and Tested.
