It has some funky hot pink and neon green warp on it. Can you tell this loom was in a barn? The warp is gonna come off soon and going in the garbage!
I made the 100 mile one way trip to look at a rug loom. Maybe I'm spoiled from the sturdiness of my Union, but this doesn't seem to be strong enough to weave a tight rug on! Not to mention there won't be much of a shed that I can tell.
I think this loom is headed for making tablerunners and scarves if I can get it functional.
I think the price for the loom was fair ~ $25, but when you drive a gas hog pickup 200 miles you're already in the $100 range! Still, not too bad :)
Who knows when I'll get around to cleaning this up. Lack of motivation is a problem here these days.
So much to do, it's hard to get started.
