Hi..for many many years I wove professionally on two Gilmores. They
were the old rigid ones..no folding parts. They were big and heavy and
came apart easily for threading. Had an 8 frame 46" and a 4 frame 56"
or 60" I can't remember. Gave one to the weaving class here in SF, and
sold one to a friend, who later passed on again. Still weaving well
after 50 years or more. I was shocked at how noisy they were when I
had a student weaving on one on the second floor and I went downstairs
to the kitchen. Loud! glen black
