24 inch Leclerc 8 Harness Floor Loom

With bench and reed. Like brand new condition,

one owner. $1500.00

250 335 2868 or



Leclerc Nilus loom. Older but in great shape. 54 inches wide 44 high. Was my mother’s. She bought new in 1976. Used gently for about 15 years. Includes bench and accessories.

The loom is “Leclerc Nilus”. It is a 4 shaft, 6 treadle jack loom. It probably has weaving width of 45″; the other option is 36″. It has vertical metal rods, The beam with Apron measures 48 inches between metal ends.
The apron fabric is possibly in need of replacement and that is reflected in the price. It is easy to replace.

Need to see to appreciate. Very heavy so plan the move. It is on second level. I can not help move it.

Looking for a Salish loom! My mother was a weaver and Master spinner most of her adult life but now has dementia and the kind of work she could once do is beyond her grasp. However, she has requested a Salish loom for her approaching 80th birthday, and so I am looking for one! If you can point me at a source or have one for sale, please contact me, Janet Wilson ( Many thanks all.


Hand made loom with kiln dried fir by Bob Eddy in Lumby, B.C., around 1977.  It was treated with Danish oil.
This loom is both a counterbalance and a jack loom.   It can be set up for either type. The position of the beater adjusts for each set up.
It can weave 45 inch fabric.  I have one reed which is 10/1.  The four harnesses are strung with string heddles – I have abut 400 right now and a bundle of seine twine to make more. There are 6 treadles.  Tie up is harnesses to lams to treadles. Floor to top of castle for counterbalance is 53 inches; for jack set up a little taller. Length from breast beam to warp beam is 45 inches; from left to right is 53 inches.
Ratchet and pawl are made of fir; brake as well, etc.  Cloth beam ratchet and pawl are fir.
Sale includes heddles, lease sticks and other wooden rods for apron tie ups; and aprons if desired; new tie up strings, etc.; 2 to 3 stick shuttles. *I will include a standard warping board with this sale. This floor loom has wonderful capacity for many projects; it is a work of art as well. It is currently warped with a simple project to make sure all parts are assembled and are working properly.   Price range $950.

The loom is not currently set up, but I can put it together in my basement for serious inquires.
