This deluxe bead loom is made from mainly recycled pine wood (frame
wheels and blocks). The spokes and rollers are made from new dowelling and the metal fittings are also all new.
Each roller is fitted with 3 tying on pegs unlike most small bead looms which generally have 1 peg.
The easy to use brake system for the rollers can be seen in the pictures and is made simply by tightening the aluminium strips at each end against the roller wheels. A screw holds the brake plate in place while adjustment is made.
The opposite side of the loom has 2 spoked wheels for turning the rollers as required.
This loom is very easy to use and I have selected very heavy pine wood to make the main structure so the loom will hold itself quite well without being clamped down (although you may prefer to clamp it or just sit with it in your lap!).
Size - Length 38.1cm-15 inches
width (including butterfly nuts) 17.5cm-7 1/8 inch and height 8.5cm-3 3/8 inch.

The loom has been left with a natural finish (and very well sanded) as a varnish or stain may affect the roller and wheel movements.
