We have an antique Reed Cambridge 45" 4 harness counterbalance floor loom that we would like to either donate or give to someone. It's in good condition and has a sectional warping beam. We did a little restoration of the wood, reed and heddles before warping it up. It's a wonderful piece for a collector, weaving department or even pioneer living museum. I'd be happy to include some rug warp as well. We're moving out west and I simply won't have room for this lovely piece.
We figured out the ropes and chains and did a plain weave sample earlier this summer. I can’t be sure but most of it is original. It feels so solid-such a great feel. There might be newer chains and ropes but I’m not sure. We have an 8 dent reed on it and there is a 15 dent reed as well. We worked on the rust, but they may still use some more elbow grease.
