Vintage wooden weaving floor loom from the Kessenich Loom Company. Well cared for and stored inside; loom is in excellent condition. Made in USA. $1495
From the Kessenich website:
“Kessenich Loom Company’s standard foot loom is built of Red Oak with a hand rubbed oil finish. It’s reputation has been built on being strong and heavy enough for rug weaving. The loom has easy access to the pin and chain tie-up system. Treadles are hinged at the front and are separated sufficiently to ease treadling actions. Rear hinged treadles are optional. Extra space is allowed for storage of unused heddles in Shaft frame to avoid interference with the full weaving width of the loom. The beater bar is extra heavy and has 3 positions for height adjustment. A steel pin is used to stabilize leg arms. Optional loom shelves attach on each side of the leg arm. All looms are collapsible for storage and moving, even while warped. Sectional warp beams have 2″ wide sections. Each sectional package comes with tension box and counter and guide. The drum is 18″ in circumference and can easily be converted into a plain beam. A Spool rack or creel is recommended for use with a Sectional Beam.”
Standard four shaft foot looms from Kessenich can be repaired and replacement parts are available.
46″ weaving width – Great for large projects (rugs, blankets, etc.) but can also handle small projects.

Mirrix looms (7/3/2021) - 117-21

I have two Mirrix Big Sister tapestry/beading looms for sale. I use one for complex tapestry (loom #1) and the other for bead weaving (loom #2), so each loom has been upgraded in different ways. Each one can still be used for both tapestry and bead weaving by removing some of the upgrades. Mirrix has information and instructions for the loom and the upgrades as free downloads on its website.

Mirrix Big Sister tapestry/bead weaving loom #1 (upgraded for weaving): This loom has an added shedding device for a total of two shedding devices, which allows the weaver to choose different weave structures for areas on the tapestry and permits, for example, the use of thicker yarns in some areas and finer yarns in others to distinguish background and subject. Coils include 8, 10 and 12. Two hand wrenches, more than 290 heddles, 2 Allen wrenches, 10 bobbins. (Also included if the buyer wants them are 3 paperback tapestry books by Nancy Harvey: Guide to Successful Tapestry Weaving, Patterns for Tapestry Weaving, and Tapestry Weaving Workshop.) Excellent condition. $300.

Mirrix Big Sister tapestry/beading loom #2 (upgraded for beadwork): This loom has an added bottom spring/coil bar so that the warp is kept at an even sett at the top and bottom. A second warping bar with texsolv cord and plastic arrows, allows for a shorter warp so that expensive beading warp can be conserved. There are matching pairs of coils for the top and the bottom in size 8, 12, 14 and 18. More than 150 mirrix heddles, 10 bobbins, 2 hand wrenches, 1 allen wrench. (Also included if the buyer wants them are 3 paperback beading books: The Art and Elegance of
Beadweaving by Carol Wells, Bead Work by Jules Kliot, and Beautiful Bead Weaving by Ortmeyer and Porter). Excellent condition. $300
