24" MACOMBER FOR SALE IN EAST PROVIDENCE, RI

 It's a 24" Macomber 4-shaft Add-a-Harness B-Model, 6 treadles, 10 dent reed, metal tie-up hooks, and about 100 metal heddles. It's about 7 years old, in excellent condition.  Retails for over $2000; I'm asking $750.  

The AD-A-HARNESS jack loom Model B is expandable so you can add more harnesses as you go.  Full width 36”, weaving width 24", 49“ high castle, 23” depth at base.   All hardware included.  Between the expandability and durability, this one will last you a lifetime.

Macomber looms are what  the Rhode Island School of Design uses in its classrooms and studios.  These are  not sold in stores; they are built to order in York, ME from hand-selected hard maple  -- local wood milled in their own facility.   All moving parts and braces are metal, so they never stretch; they're ready to go when you are.  Tie-ups from pedals to lamms use special steel hooks that are simple to connect between any pedal and any lamm in any combination without  fiddling around with cords or Texsolv.

Please contact Naomi Herzfeldnherzfeld@cox.net or through Ravelry as "nbhknits"   More photos are available on request.  For pick up only and COD. (Posted 4-19)

for sale in Beverly, MA

Herbsterloom.jpg

LeClerc 60” Tissart tapestry loom.  1970’s upright maple loom with 2 shafts, rotating warp and cloth beams controlled by ratchets, and a movable beater with up/down action.  Sectional beam. Two identical sets of treadles have been added to the original set to make weaving wide tapestry easier.   Original instruction book.  This Tissart is intact and is working.  It comes with three reeds: 6, 8,  and 10 dent. There is a 10 yard 10/5  linen warp on the loom and extra linen warp yarn.  The Tissart was called the “loom for artists” because the weaver can stand or sit in front of it and view the vertical weaving as s/he works.  (This loom is no longer produced. However, LeClerc’s Gobelin tapestry loom is similar and is sold new for a base price of $4060.)   (68” W, 69“ H, 32” deep- away from wall, 24” D at base). Photos available.
