Leclerc Dorothy 15 3/4 inch Loom with Stand  $125.00  Located in Comox, BC. The Leclerc Dorothy is an excellent Table Loom providing 15 3/4 inches of weaving width, in a sturdy package. The four shafts are activated by 4 color-coded side mount levers that can be depressed individually or in groups to raise the corresponding shaft(s). Pushing down a set of levers automatically releases the previous set, making shaft changes easy and allowing the weaver to get into a rhythm. When the loom is in use, as in the picture above, it measures 19 3/8 inches wide (21 inches to the tip of the handles), 22 inches deep and 18 inches high. The loom weighs about 15 pounds. The Dorothy table loom is an excellent choice for sampling, workshops and general purpose weaving and is the largest selling table loom in the world. Both the cloth and warp beams have ratchet mechanisms enabling a high tension to be placed on the warp and there is also a tab at the top that when moved will release any depressed levers. When not in use or when being transported, two screws holding steel stabilizer bars can be loosened allowing the loom to fold up as shown in the picture below. This reduces the loom height and makes it easier to store in a closet, lean against the wall or to put in a car trunk for transport. This can be done while the loom is warped making it excellent for those weavers who want to travel with the loom or who lack the space to leave it out all the time. When folded for storage or travel the volume taken by the loom shrinks to 19 3/8 inches wide, 27 inches deep and only 11 3/4 inches high. Table for Dorothy Loom. Light folding base. The height (25″) allows the weaver to use an ordinary chair to operate the loom. Pictures Available. Contact by e-mail.
