Having untied the Ashford Table Loom from the pedals of the homemade stand, then dismantled the stand, I was left with a few questions.
Do I sell the loom?
That was the plan. However, it left me with another question:
What do I do with the homemade stand?
There were issues with it. Now that I had a floor loom my suspicion that the old loom’s stand was too high was confirmed. Added to that was the need to move the supporting beam across the front that made it uncomfortable to sit at. I probably couldn’t sell it as it was, but I could give it away with the loom. But what if a friend wanted to buy it? I’d rather give them a stand that worked well.
After a bit of measuring up, I figured it wouldn’t take much to fix the problems. So Paul and I spent a few hours shortening the stand, adding a support beam under where the loom’s castle sits to simplify the pedal tie-up and a beam under the pedals to make the stand sturdier and easier to transport.
Now all I have to do is decide how much to ask for it and advertise.
Though I have to admit, I am tempted to keep it. And I should at least try one project on it, to make sure everything works, right?
