Leclerc 90″ Loom

Leclerc’s 90″ Loom was first manufactured in 1937. It was a 4 shaft counterbalance loom and looks for all practical purposes like a Mira, the major differences being that it has two sets of treadles and an overhead set of pulleys to support the shafts.  Dubbed the Double Loom 90″in 1952 it was replaced by the Kebec 100″ loom in the mid-1960’s.  A Fanny-like hinge was an added option beginning in 1980 along with a 120″ option, and in 1982 it was again refashioned into the Kebec II, which remains in production today.  Its current price starts at $8,500+.

I have yet to find Instructions for either the 90″ Loom or the Double Loom.  Here are the instructions for the Kebec I in their stead…
