This Weavers Delight Semi-Automatic Floor Loom, created by the Newcomb Loom Co. of Davenport Iowa is a bit of a unique beast. First invented in the late 1800's and became popular during the WWII era as a Cottage Rug Weaving Industry for the Wives of Soldiers who needed to supplement their income. This one is a series "C", S/N 5329 and was built on 03/07/42

They came fully assembled and ready to work. They are quite unique due to their automated system of changing the shafts and throwing the shuttle with the simple pull and push of the Beater Bar. Nearly anyone can operate this loom and weave a quality product. We've used this loom, as well as a couple of others, in our shop for the last 11 years or so and have had kids as young as 5 and adults in their 90's weave rugs for home or for gifts.

Originally, there were 4 different sets of "Cams" that were available to weave a nice variety of 4 step patterns. Included with this loom are two sets of cams, numbered #1, #2 for the Bowties looking cams (Or "T" as described in the manual) and the #7, #8, # 9 and #10 Fan type cams (Or "G" in the manual). The manual describes the many combinations of these cams to achieve the different patterns.

I will not kid you here... this loom is BIG, Bulky and Loud and if you don't have a set of French Patio doors to bring it in, it will have to be disassembled. You will need at least a pick-up truck to take her home and at least a couple of very strong people to pick it up and carry it.
