I am an elated owner of a used Macomber ad-a-harness B5 loom. The loom was used for many years by the original owner but following her death it was left for more than 10 years in a room gathering dust. The family recalls the original owner purchased the loom some time between 1968-1972. The loom has 16 harness and 48" weaving width. The loom was partially dismantled and the treadle hooks disconnected. I am not familiar with this type of loom, as my previous experience is with 8 harness table loom. I am eager to learn from experienced weavers.
I have not been able to locate a manual for this loom. In searching the Internet, I did see on Sarah Haskell's blog that she intended to publish a manual in PDF but could not find it on the blog site. Sarah noted on her blog that as of August 1 she is focusing more o. Her global peace project and is on sabbatical as a sales rep for Macomber.
I am looking for information on cleaning the loom, ensuring all parts are present, or in need of repair or replacement, and any information and advice that you think helpful to an eager, serious learner-weaver.
Thank you, Robin S
