I inherited this loom, and I'm not a weaver so I don't have much more information about it. It looks like it might need a little work! I believe it was purchased from an antiques dealer about 5 years ago. I have more pictures I can share if you email me. The loom is located in Ann Arbor.

Masterweaver Loom for Sale:

 

Price $50/negotiable, Located in Royal Oak.  

 

Contact b9scha@gmail.com

 

Some history:  The Masterweaver loom legend is that it was designed by an engineer for his wife so that she could continue weaving despite arthritis.  Like the Speedloom, it can be warped in 10 minutes.  However, setting the disks to produce the desired pattern can take several hours.  Since finger dexterity is of prime importance in manipulating the disks,  The position of the disks is identified by braille-like dots which are somewhat difficult to see.  The brochure claims that it can emulate an eight-shaft loom, but I've only been able to achieve 4 shaft patterns.    It's 24 inch width is good for shawls or place mats and I usually keep it set for rosepath.
