Glimakra Standard loom, 120 cm, with Myrehed Combination Draw Loom
Glimakra Standard loom, 120 cm wide with Myrehed Combination Draw Loom
Attachment. The Glimakra Standard Loom has 10 ground harnesses and all
the pieces to do countermarch and counterbalance. The Myrehed
Combination Draw Loom Attachment can do up to 50 pattern shafts (I have
21 shafts) and also does single units at the same time. Also included
is a 1 inch sectional beam that is homemade. It is easily removable if
you want a smooth beam. You also get a custom made ergonomic bench by
Walter Turpenning. The loom has all Texsolv heddles for both pattern
and ground heddles. This loom has only had 3 warps on it. Kept in a
nonsmoking house with no pets.
Am willing to ship this loom but it is pricey! There is an alternative
to shipping this loom. The weather and the golf in Scottsdale is
great. My husband and I run a one bedroom bed and breakfast through Air
BnB. We are willing to have a weaver and spouse or friend stay for a
week for free. We can take the loom apart and take cell phone pictures
so you will have a record of how to put the loom together.
Asking $6300 plus shipping if you do not want to pick it up. This is
10-20% less than a new loom.

Glimakra Standard Loom 47"
My mother purchased this standard loom new in 2007 and had been using it gently to make rag rugs until recently. She has cared for it very well, so it is in excellent condition and in a smoke-free home. It is set up as a countermarch loom and features an on-the-loom warping frame, an 8" reed, Texsolv heddles, and all paperwork and instructions. The bench is included.
The following books are also included: Rag Rug Handbook Glimakra Looms by Joanne Hall Tying Up the Countermarch Loom by Joanne Hall Favorite Rag Rugs by Tina Ignell Mastering Weave Structures by Sharon Alderman The Handweaver's Pattern Directory by Anne Dixon Simple Weaves How to Make Rugs by Candace Wheeler Learning to Weave by Deborah Chandler and Weaving Rag Rugs: Dress Your Loom the Swedish Way

Loom is currently set up at my mother's house in Jamestown, TN. We will disassemble the loom in the next few weeks for a move to Maryville, TN, and I am glad to drive to meet a buyer within a reasonable distance.
