Does anyone use a floor loom? Is this very difficult to operate? We are considering a trade and a loom was one of the things offered up to us for trade. Does this appear to be in good shape?

Is weaving something you really want to do? Do you have time for it?

I ask because a friend of mine just sold hers because she has had it for several years and never once used it. Had good intentions but never had the time.

I weave.
Are any of the metal parts rusty? If so, pass on it. It's not worth it at that point.
How many harnesses does it have? I can't see but it looks like maybe only 2 though that is rare and it seems like 4 is more likely.

It's hard to tell if it's a good deal or not. You might be able to get $400 for that loom if you resold it in working order. Thing with looms in New England is that everyone has an old one in their barn. If you want it to learn to weave on then it's worth it if it's not rusty and all the parts move properly.
