Harrisville 4 harness direct tie up loom for sale. $400 
I just replaced one of the chains that lift the heddles.  It folds up to fit in the back of my Honda Rav 4.  I was given this loom a few months ago, and it looks like it is in pretty good shape!  I looked on Weavolution to figure out how to put the chains on, and it looks like Harrisville sells new and improved pulley systems for it and also has a manual so there is lots of support available for this loom.  Looks like a great starter or workshop loom. 
 
Please text me, or call at 616-340-0420. I am in Grand Rapids and could meet you halfway.

Two knitting machines for the price of one:  $550  

A fine gauge used Brother KH-860, punch card model, and a used mid-gauge Brother KH-260 that I intended to use with my hand spun yarn.  I learned on the 860 and it worked fine.  When I purchased the 260 it was supposed to work, but didn’t for me then.  I didn’t have the time to investigate what the problem might have been.  Work and life became more complicated and I stopped machine knitting altogether and haven’t returned to it.  I do think the mid-gauge will work, but I am not interested in spending time on it, thus your chance for a great bargain!  I will include my patterns and books.  The photo shows the 860 model, but you can contact me for more photos and questions.

***STUNNING 72” CRANBROOK BEXELL WEAVING FLOOR LOOM - LIKE NEW!!!***

 

72" Cranbrook Bexel, Countermarche design with 6 harnesses , texsolv heddles and 10 locking treadles.  It is currently assembled and stored in my clean home. It is one of the original Bexell Brothers' looms made specifically for the world-renowned Cranbrook Art School. This classic loom produced exceptional work and is in excellent condition. Includes: full-width hanging tool shelf, reeds, and bench. 

 

The current retail price of a new Schact version of this loom is over $10,000. I would be willing to sell it for $4,000 for local/regional pickup in Rochester Hills. The serial number for this loom, manufactured in Pontiac and purchased in 1992, is J-72 7967 773. 

 

I will be sad to part with this loom in the processing of downsizing and moving, but I will be happy for it to continue bringing joy to another artist and weaver :)

Kessenich Floor Loom, weaving width is 46”. Front and back beam is removable for easy threading. Hight of the front beam is 32”.

 

Front to back is 51” and 62” wide plus 10” if the shelves are on. (two are included) This loom can be folded up when not in use and then just 28” deep. Kessenich is still producing and selling looms in case you would like to add double beam or sectional beam.

 

This is a very sturdy loom and unlike other foldable jack looms, holds tension very good and easy to be used for rugs or tapestry too. Only reason I’m selling is that I use my AVL a lot and no room for equipment that is not used. Bench is included. Comes with ss 8,10 15 dpi reeds. Willing to travel to meet up somewhere for gas money and a dinner for two ;)

TABLETOP WARPING MILL $200 OBO
This is a vintage (circa 1980) mill in excellent/barely used condition. I believe it is a Beka, but have lost the paperwork long ago.  Crossbeams: 27 x 27, Frame: 19 x19, stands 26.5" tall.  It has ball bearings that help it spin easily and will warp at least 20 yds.
 
I'm asking $200 USD/or best offer, plus shipping (which i'm guess wouldn't be more than $20USD).  I would love for this to go to someone who wants it by Christmas. Located in San Jose, CA.
