the Ricks Beading loom

Never have more than two warp threads! the Ricks Beading loom is a patent protected BEADSMITH exclusive item. Use any size bead and even mix bead sizes easily! With a comprehensive users guide, adjustable length, quality construction and, ergonomic design this loom will quickly become popular item. From Paul Ricks- Inventor of the BEAD LOOM- I have made a wider loom in the past, but discontinued it because (a) it was a slow seller and (b) about 9 inches wide is the widest practical width for this method of looming. If you go wider than about 4", you must use a much heavier gauge music rod for the warp rods to give them enough strength to resist bowing. This means the rods will have a larger diameter and that would produce an unacceptably large loop in the ends of the warp threads resulting in a "loose" finished project. For the 9" wide loom I produced I used .075 music rod and that was OK. Anything larger is unacceptable. I have had a few people request looms of greater width and I recommend to them that they make their project in 3" wide strips and square stitch the strips together to make their wider projects. I hope this answers your question ........ Paul
