"It was custom made for a technique called shaft-switching. I'm the second owner and long knew of the man who built it before the loom came on the market. When I bought it, the loom had been disassembled and on the previous owner’s garage floor for three years. Once I got the loom to my studio I needed to figure out how it went together. There was no instruction manual...an engineer friend helped set it up. After that, I was up and running."
