27” Louet David Loom

8 harnesses with additional heddles, built-in raddle, sliding beater, sectional warp beam (easily used as a plain beam), 10 dent reed.
Two very different tension devices for warping from Louet. One is similar to a tension box that hooks on the back beam, the other is a much smaller setup… Louet Warp Tension Regulator and Sectional Warping Tool

It has two minor scratches on the castle. About two years old.

YES!

I offer a professional service that applies to craft artists (web design, bookkeeping, marketing)
YES!

Can non-MCA members list ads in SOURCE+SELL?
YES! As long as the listing is Maine craft related and fits into types of listing we are sharing. As with all listings, if we determine it doesn’t fit in we will let you know. & we always welcome new members – please consider joining! Click here for more info.
