    For Sale: 16 shaft, PDL, 60” wide in W. NC. $6500 OBO

    This loom was made for me in 1989. But I have continuously upgraded it.

    Finished doing blankets so am selling this loom to downsize my studio space.

    I have the original shipping boxes for the beams and CD IV though I’d prefer not to have to organize a shipment. If you want to see this loom in action, I would put a narrow warp on it for you to try. If you need a detailed picture of anything or have further questions, please let me know.

    Pictures are available.


    • CD IV for positive dobby (computer dobby control)

    • E-lift, but also included are original cables and treadles. No leg strain with this loom.

    • New Auto Advance can be adjusted more easily that the old one with gears.

    • Double box fly shuttle, modified to be a side throw (modeled on Laura Fry’s arrangement)

    • 1 yard sectional beam with rakes spaced 2” apart.

    • Plain beam mounted below (apron not shown here and flanges not included)

    • Raddle with 1/4” spaces

    • Tension box mount (but no tension box)

    • 2400 + heddles, 2100 mounted on the loom, rest are extras. Heddles have been dyed for ease in threading is sets of 4 colors.

    • Reeds, all stainless, 6,8,10,12 and 15 dent.

    • Built-in bench

    • Apron to cloth beam

    • Original manual + additions for E-lift and Auto Advance and CD IV

    • Sandpaper beam mounted on the loom, but there is also a rubber cover for it

    • Various small, spare parts such as extra picker returns and filters for E-lift fan cover.
