    My wife will be storing an 8 shaft loom for her Weavers Guild. That, of course, goes in the living room where she can use it. Her current 4 shaft loom is now here:...

    I had to go back and review your posts, specifically about the psx and sprog. Once again I must confess ignorance. What are the psx and sprog and what do they do?
