Loom arrived quickly; it was easy to put together. But the instructions on how to dress it and provide tension were vague. After owning it for over a month, I'm still not able to use it properly. It needs something to hold the warp and provide tension. If you just wrap your warp around the the top and bottom dents, as you're supposed to, you won't get enough tension. I'm going to purchase a couple of 19" dowels to use for my tension, on my 20" Beka.
I think if I had the money to purchase another loom, I'd buy an Ashford or Kromski. And the two shuttles provided with the loom are at least 18" and it would be nice to have one abnout 1/2 that size...so, that's another purchase I'll need to make.
