I'm looking to downsize to a smaller loom, so this one is now for sale. Specs:
Leclerc Nilus 4 harness loom, mid 1970s. I am the second owner. This is a great all-purpose workhorse of a loom, suitable for rugs, linens, etc. I'm selling to put something smaller in the space. I am the second owner. Contact me if you are interested!

$650, cash only, no online sales. Due to experience with online scams and identity theft, please give me some way to verify your actual existence, like a social media profile that I can check out. Thanks for your understanding! To reciprocate that, you will find me as pocketmeadowfarm on Ravelry. I do not yet have a social media profile for artisan handweaving. This loom is too large for shipping; I'm in the Kansas City area and am always delighted to meet another weaver, or prospective weaver. I will keep this warp on the loom so you can test it out.
Hot tip from a friend: if you think you've been the victim of a scam, immediately put a fraud alert and freeze on your credit report at all three reporting companies: Equifax, TransUnion, and Experian. Additionally, if someone asks you to verify a "code", of course, don't do it. It could be a google voice scam, wherein they are trying to set up accounts using your name and identity.
