I had been hoping to find a small rugged loom to haul up to the mountains that could live on the deck upon which I could weave rugs and/or scarves. I found it. It’s pretty rough but a diamond in the rough! This is a Kessenich Loom, they’re valued as work horses. The loom is probably from the 1960’s. It was hand made from sold red oak. It’s mostly all there, I think. I plan to do some cleaning this weekend. The finish is pretty much done. Most of the screws are frozen. It’s a project but I expect well worth the investment ($197) off eBay. I was able to pick it up locally (which is rare in Florida) which saved me shipping. More about this loom as the project developes.1-blog
