For Sale: Gilmore 32” Maple Floor Loom with Weaving Bench and Accessories

Used Gilmore maple floor loom in excellent condition. 32" true weaving width, 6 shafts, 10 treadles, treadle ties, beam ties. This model (6 shafts; 10 treadles) is no longer sold by Gilmore.

This is a beautiful machine and a pleasure to weave with. It is a lovely piece to feature in your home. I am only selling it because I am no longer physically capable of using it.

For Sale: Belfast West Felting machine (AKA: THE BEAST)

I purchased this from a mill in Winchester VA on 6/19/2013

I have been using this to make 3 ' x 3 ' panels. You just put down the batting, or wool, wet it down with Dawn and make sure it is completely soaked, then run it for 20 minutes.  Turn it, run it again, keep turning it and turning the piece over until it gets to the type of felt you want.  Usually one hour. I then use heat to get it really tight in the dryer. There are different ways to do the fulling of the felt. I can show you examples and you can come over and try it. There is a back up motor for the beast.

Cost was   $4,200

shipping     $1,511

new motor $2,000

ASKING $4,200.00
