I bought the Rick's loom because it seemed like it would be easier to use than the basic loom that I was using. Things to keep in mind:
1. Make sure you are exact in the length of the item you are making because you won't be able to add after starting it.
2. Keeping the tension on the threads while setting it up isn't easy. In my opinion, this is the toughest part.
3. This loom has a huge range of use and I would buy it again.
First time using this and I must say that I can't wait to make another project. Set up was easy and my bracelet turned out really nice. My daughter asked for the same loom for Christmas when she saw the end result.
I placed an order on 08/29/16 for Ricks Beading Loom. Other sites have the loom but they are not assembled. I am so happy that I received my order today 08/31/16 and it was assembled. Artbeads you are great and love the videos on the various products. Your video is the reason I sent back a plastic loom and opted for the Ricks Loom. You instructors provide great instruct and I love the Learning Center.
I can take this long Labor Day weekend and make some beautiful jewelry. THANK YOU
