This is a good value on a very well-designed and well-functioning loom. The Spring gives the advantage of a countermarch shed, but without the complicated tie-up system characteristic of other countermarch looms. The spring-controlled breast beam gives good, consistent tension, and large sheds all the way to the end of the warp; so, loom waste is minimal. This loom is sturdy and holds a lot of tension; but, because of the spring feature, it has a relatively small footprint for its width and strength. It doesn’t take up a huge amount of space, and can be partially folded when not in use.
