Floor loom for sale

It's a beautiful—and large—wooden loom that I need to find a new home for by the end of September. It has been in storage for a while, most recently in my garage in San Rafael. I have to move by September 30th and sadly can't take it with me. I hope to sell it, though I don't know what it's worth.

Dimensions: 50" length x 40" width x 56" height

May need some TLC to get it working. Will need a truck and a few really strong people to lift it.

Arrange a time to view/pick up. Located in San Rafael.

Will consider any offer.

Looms and yarn for sale

I am trying to find good homes for some items of my mother-in-law’s, who was a weaver and fiber artist. She worked mostly with Tamalpais Weavers, who I have not been able to contact, and she also took classes at College of Marin.

As of now, I have three items:

  • Nilus LeClerc Dorothy table loom, $500
  • portable tapestry loom, $50
  • chest full of yarn, assorted colors, all wool, as far as I can tell, $150 (?)

I hope to find interested parties for these items. My mother in law was very accomplished, and I know she would want these items put to good use.

For sale: 4-harness loom

I am offering this loom to a beginner for $400. I don't know much about the loom except that it is a four harness loom with 6 treadles, and a 40" beater with 36" frame, counterbalance loom. There is also a sturdy wooden bench that comes with the loom.

My cell phone is the best way to contact me (707.548.2110), or this email address: gloyer@gmail.com. The loom must be picked up from my home in Santa Rosa near the Flamingo Hotel.

Thank you!
George

For sale: 10 harness/10 treadle countermarche loom

I am a weaver in Oakland, CA, and I would like to sell my 10 harness countermarche loom to someone who will use it.

Description: 10 harness/10 treadle Lervad (Danish) countermarche loom/convertible to counterbalance. Very similar to a Glimakra loom. Made of Danish beech with a few parts in maple. Weaving width is 130cm (about 49"). This loom is deeper than any other countermarche loom I have ever seen, which reduces wear on the warp threads, and the treadles and harnesses are easily accessible. Mortise and tenon construction, back slung treadles, overhead beater, cloth protector, adjustable bench included. I will also include a couple of shuttles with bobbins.

All parts are in good working order. It also comes with 10 harness damask harnesses, and most of the parts to be converted to a counterbalance mechanism if you so desire. It has about 900 or so texsolv heddles and all texsolv tie up cords.

I have used this loom for the past 10 years and it really weaves like a dream! I have woven everything from lace to large rugs on it with no trouble. I'm only selling it because I am upgrading to a 16 harness 63" loom. A similar 10 harness loom new from Glimakra would cost more than $5000. I am asking $2200 or best offer.

L.W. Macomber AD-A Harness Loom for saleFor Sale:

L.W. Macomber AD-A Harness Loom

This is a model B4 6-harness loom with 48” weaving width. The loom was made in 1970. I purchased the loom in 1978, in Berkely, California, from the original owner. Macomber is asking $4,097 for this model. I am asking $2,500.

There is a tad bit of water stains on the wood. Since we moved to Southern California in 1990, I have not been able to use the loom as I once did. The loom has been stored in our garage in Irvine, CA.
