25 inch Schacht Rigid Heddle Loom:


- I am offering for sale my used-only-once 25 inch Schacht rigid heddle loom (see photos) which comes with its stand, 2 8-dent reeds, carrying case, etc. I paid $575 for the loom and everything that came with it.

- I also purchased 3 related books for $85. So my total expenditure was $660. 


- If you want to buy just the loom, I am knocking $100 off the price or $475.

- If you want both the loom and the books, I am asking $550.

Cash only and metro-Detroit area pick up.

50" solid cherry wood Norwood floor loom, matching storage bench, and MANY extras
50" Norwood Model 850, 8 harness/shafts, 16 treadle, folding Norwood solid northern cherry loom with natural oil finish with many options and accessories. This was a made to order and numbered loom and is in great condition. As with all oil finishes this could use a coat of oil which will make even more beautiful. 
If you could purchase a loom of this quality today it would be well over $4,000 and would not be made from such beautiful wood. The included accessories would be well over $1,000 as well so get a great deal and everything you need to get started for at least 50% less than new and lesser quality.  
It folds up so it doesn't take up as much room when not in use and is fully functional with no known issues.  It's no longer being used and we can use the space so get a great deal on a fantastic and high quality loom. 
Included (please see pictures): 
  • Norwood 50" Model 850 8 harness, 16 treadle Norwood Solid Cherry Large Loom Bench - 36" bench with tilting seat for weaving comfort and underseat work/storage box.  
  • Extra chain tie-ups - the chain tie-up system means there are no cords to stretch and can be changed easily as well as treadle height.  
  • Multiple spring and flat heddles 
  • 5 Reeds - The jack-type action of a Norwood loom provides independent harness operation for artistic versatility and ease of use. 
  • Royal skein winder
  • Harrisville Designs - bobbin winder
  • Umbrella swift for winding yarn
  • Leclerc warping board - some finish issues but can easily be refinished or used as is
  • 7 stick shuttles of varying length
  • 1 Boat shuttle
  • 2 Schacht Spindle ski shuttles
  • Other various accessories as pictured
If you would like to see any additional pictures or have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. 
Price: $2,500 cash only at pickup
