LeClerc Voyageur 8 shaft table loom – 40 cm (15 3/4in) width (second hand)

                

 

This is an 8 shaft table loom designed especially to make it a good workshop or demonstration loom as it folds down, locks, and fits neatly into the accompanying bag. And you can fold it up safely with a warp on it.

The levers are nice and close together on the top of the loom so very easy to operate, and they have little magnets that snap the levers into place.

The bag is made of blue heavy duty denim and has pockets for tools and bits and pieces.
