From the Leclerc website:
"A loom reminiscent of those our ancestors used, with many major improvements which makes this one of the best Leclerc looms ever produced. Its great adaptability allows it to be used as a general purpose loom, or for any specific purpose required by an inventive and creative weaver.
Made of the finest Canadian maple, it is finished with clear lacquer and varnish so that the beauty of the natural grain and color of the lumber remains visible. It is possible to upgrade this loom to have 8 or 12 shafts by adding one or two extra 4 shaft kits.
Because the jacks are in the loom castle, less pressure is needed to lift the shafts.
The overhead beater is optional."
Pictures are from stock images, and one of the loom partially assembled. The loom is flat packed and ready for collection- either by a courier which I can help you arrange collect in person from Cambridge.
