I really wanted to like this loom. It had an intriguing shape. I love the solid ratchets and pawls. I was very intrigued by the swinging beater. Alas, I hate it.
Not because it says it is a folding loom and the warp goes flopping away when you fold it- all folding looms do that. Not because the tie rods are flat instead of round- I can go to the hardware store to replace those. Not even because the warping peg is so bizarrely designed- I have been known to use an upside-down C clamp. I am not crazy about the warping tool, but it is a version of one of the tools I use, just not my favorite tool.
I hate it because of the hanging beater that slithers mercilessly to and fro as I try to warp. I hate it because it looks like it comes with useful tools, but I cannot figure out how to use them. How can I clamp the base of the loom with 1 clamp and the warping peg with the other? The peg is just that- a peg. Shouldn't I get 2 clamps for the back? Where do those clamps go? DO I warp flat and weave with it raised? Why can't I find the manual online?
I have used a lot of different looms. I have worked on Bekas from the 70's, so it's not that I am spoiled and expecting tools with my loom. I just want tools that make sense. I have been happy with the Schacht Cricket and Flip looms. If Schacht could get the ratchets and pawls right like Glimakra, I would have my ideal loom. It's tempting to take a screwdriver to them all and make it work.
This is an expensive loom that is more difficult to work on than other looms. I do not see the advantages it purports to offer. Caveat emptor!
