I used this for a large project, and will continue to use it for many to come. For those that are asking about the dimensions of the item, it's about five inches wide by eight inches long. so the open space between the coils is that size. But, once you finish a section, you can roll it over the wooden rollers to continue a longer piece. I've also made a lanyard with it, and just rolled the finished parts over the dowel, so I could continue with the pattern to my desired length.

The loom works great. The only issue that I have had is with the metal pegs on one of the rollers. They all pop out. Almost lost my first project part way through when the peg I had it attached to pulled out. A little epoxy and the issue is solved. It is a nice size loom and works great after fixing the peg issue. If you buy this, I would suggest tugging on the pegs a little before starting to be sure that they will stay firmly in. When I was researching this type of loom, this peg problem appeared to be a problem with pretty much all of them. It didn't matter what brand or what size.

This is great for beginners and veterans alike. The biggest problem is getting each project set up and getting started. It was frustrating trying to get the threads to stay stretched tight after I got them arranged on the loom, which is quite lightweight. I found that I had to twist, wrap, tape and knot the threads in an attempt to keep them taut. But after I figured that out, it was relatively simple. My 8 year old grandson even made a simple bracelet for his mom, and he had a great time.

It comes with some needles, thread, and beads; the best thing to do with these is throw them out and get some

This was my first attempt at using a loom. The instructions to setup the loom itself were clear. The directions on how to start weaving were pretty good. I watched some YouTube videos, so I felt confident in weaving. My 1st piece of advice is to throw out the beads that come with the loom. They were horrible. At least 25% of the beads were too small for the needle & thread make the second pass-through. I went to my local bead store & bought #8 seed beads, & they worked well. However, when I went to take the

This is a really good loom to use. The size is perfect, and the loom itself is a lot sturdier than it appears in the picture. I would suggest this loom over the smaller ones.

I really enjoy this loom, but it's a headache to set up, especially for a beginner like myself. I learned on Rick's Beading Loom and this is a completely different animal. My suggestion is get you some inexpensive thread and just practice setting up your threads until you learn how to keep them tight. Otherwise you'll end up wasting a lot of valuable line (like I did) in the learning process. After going through almost two spools of Fire Line, I finally figured out not only how to set it up to my standards but also how to unwind the thread back onto the Fire-Line spool if I make a mistake and need to re-thread the loom. It takes patience, and I nearly lost mine. A few times I had visions of chucking it against the nearest wall. But I stuck with it and I am now working on an enormous project with seventeen beads per line. Also, I should add this works best with smaller seed beads, not the larger type. It says to not skip rows in the included directions, but on how-to videos I've heard you can skip rows if needed to accommodate larger beads, so this may be a sort of user-decision thing.

It comes with a small pack of black and white beads and a small pack of multi-colored beads, a small spool of thread, needles and directions. it is some-assembly-required, but it's nothing too difficult. You may need help tightening the wingnuts on each roller if you don't have good grip strength, but you don't want them too tight as they're there for you to make adjustments as you work.

This is a great size loom. I have used small looms for many years and have recently been doing larger creations, so the size of this loom makes them easy. Much more stable, and just as portable as the smaller ones.

I put my loom together (just minor assembly, no tools. Took a couple minutes). Threading it was easy. Note that there is some oil on the warpholder that will discolor light thread. The beads will probably hide it, though.
