This is an older Macomber in excellent condition. Mechanically restored and wood cleaned and refinished in areas that were a little rough. This is an "Ad-A-Harness" loom that is a 4 Shaft, 6 Treadle that can be expanded to a 10 Shaft, 14 Treadle. Parts are still available from Macomber Looms.
The Macomber is a very sturdy loom that was designed and built more for function than appearances and is considered a "Work Horse" in the Weaving World. Fully capable of weaving anything from Rugs to fine Linens.
They are designed with rear hinged treadles that allows for easier treadle action but takes some getting used to if you've used other looms with front hinged treadles. People who use Macombers swear by them and wouldn't consider any other. They fold up on both front and rear and take up little space when stored.
She has been warped and tested and is available for you to weave on her to see if she works for you.
This is a Package Deal and the loom includes the following:
Bench w/ Storage
15 Dent Stainless Steel Reed
Flat Steel Heddles
Tool Shelf on top of Loom
