Anyone familiar with assembling an old loom?

I'm still not sure if it is a counter balance or a counter marche loom.  Not all the pieces are pictured.






This reed came with it.  I do have a metal one, but how many weavers have seen a reed made from real reed??l

LOL nutmeg!

Most folks, the first time they walk into our home think they've stepped back about 100 years in time.  Plenty of modern things but all kinds of old 'things' too that we use on a daily basis.

I'd LOVE to have a home with lots of "old things" that are used everyday.............. Wink
I have a son who's in the Navy that was on leave for a couple of days this week............he walked in and took one look at my Kiwi and said:

"Mom............one of these days I'm gonna come home and you'll hand me a bucket to go out to the hand pump well for cookin' water!"

Funny...... Roll Eyes......cuz' I had been thinking of having the DH build a well around the pump house.................. Grin

You should do it lissa!

That's what DH did for our 1st anniversary of the homestead present.  A hand pump well.

Course, we hit water after 23', so it's technically a sand point.  I love being able to not have to worry if the electricity goes out for an extended period.  We have water from the hand pump and would change out the parlor heating wood stove for the wood cookstove and carry on.
