The Varpapuu countermarch loom is 8 shafts. It is easily assembled as it uses 8 mortise and tenon joints. It has a worm gear instead of a brake system which makes it easy to beam a warp from back to front. The loom measures 51” front to back, 55” wide and 63” tall. It comes with a stool, several reeds 10, 12, and 14. There are 1000 texsolv heddles, and a new texsolv cord tie up to treadles. It is a sturdy workhorse loom for weaving rugs. It is a loom best suited for a taller person 5’6” and up.
Asking $650.
