Antique Spinning Wheels & Used Equipment at Apple Hollow Farm


USED SPINNING AND WEAVING EQUIPMENT
at Apple Hollow Farm


norwegian?


I've loved old spinning wheels and weaving looms since long before I learned to weave and spin, nearly 30 years ago. Even as a child, I was intrigued with the artistry and grace of spinning wheels, and massive power of weaving looms. I hope you enjoy looking at some of our "finds" and perhaps give one a good home.

Have an unusual antique wheel (perhaps one with 2 flyers or 2 treadles) or used spinning wheel, table loom or interesting piece of equipment you'd like to trade in? We may be interested!

pioneer weaving loom

NORTHWEST LOOMS USED PIONEER TABLE LOOM
Six Harness open heddle, open reed loom, approx. 20" weaving width. NO MORE THREADING THROUGH REED AND HEDDLE EYES! This is the coolest concept, and wonderful for fast warping for sampling or workshops. The Northwest Pioneer Loom is a highly portable, tabletop model which optimizes flexibility, portability & compactness. There is room for 2 more harnesses to be added. The Pioneer Loom features a unique open top heddle, open reed operating mechanism which facilitates on-loom warping to a maximum of 24 EPI & the flexibility to change warp threading while weaving without having to cut the warp. The Pioneer Loom is fitted with canvas aprons, 8 dent reed, heddles, and BUILT-IN warping rails! To facilitate on-loom warping, the Pioneer Loom features extendable beams and warping rails. The Pioneer will accommodate up to 9 yards of warp, depending upon the width. When a shorter warp is desired, such as in sampling, the rails may be removed and the loom warped from apron to apron. Or, you can just use a conventional warping board. Overall dimensions are about 24 x 24 x 12". Wood condition is good. This intriguing loom is ready to weave, and is available for $449 which includes shipping in the continental US.

fraser rag cutter

FRASER RAG CUTTER
Ideal cutter for making uniform width strips of cloth for rug weaving, braiding, or rughooking. This is still made, so additional cutting wheels of various spacings can still be purchased, and the manufacturer still provides service.

Uniform Slitting- Saves hours over scissors method. Cuts narrower and more evenly. Clean smooth slitting… strips hook easier. Loops are more uniform.
