Making a 48" Rigid Heddle Loom

A customer requested a 48" rigid heddle loom that would use an manufacturers heddle.  This was a fun but cumbersome project but it's getting there.  All that is left to do is the routing of the edges and sanding smooth.  Then I'll put a coat of wax on it and shine it all up.  I might have to make one of these for myself!  You could get a twin size blanket made easily with such a large loom.
Here she is almost finished.


  1. Did you make the ratchet gears yourself? I'm trying to find some or make some right now.

  2. Yes, I do make them however you can purchase them in a few places. Search for ratchet and pawls sets.
    I can make you a set like these from wood for 22.00 and nylon for 27.00 if you are not able to get a set that you need. If you'd like me to make a set check out my Etsy shop and make a request. Good luck!!!

  3. I'm impressed. I've told my cousin about you. She into all this stuff. Well the using not the making of it.
