Another Loom Rescue

For no particular reason we had been looking for a 60″ loom.  Then we found one, but it was far away, near a friend’s home.  They agreed to pick it up for us.  We gave them instruction of what to look for.  They phoned from the site when they were there.  They brought it to us this Easter weekend.  But it was not a 60″ loom; it was a 45″ Leclerq Fanny, which we already have.  That was disappointing since we had asked them to measure it to make sure.  Oh well.  It is in pretty rough shape and will need to be stripped and polished, but the heddles and the reeds are in good shape.  One of the reeds is a 5 count reed which will be good for rugs, so it will become a dedicated rug machine, which is fine.  The refurbishing will take place next winter.  The loom will go into a protected shed and the metal will stay inside.  It was a good price.
