    Does anyone know where I might get a copy of the instruction manuals? I’m hoping I could garner some information I can use to build a loom?

    I was able to download the manual for my 12 harness one directly off the AVL website. Plus the person I purchased it from had the original manual.

    Thanks Cindy. I go check it out. I was hoping to find manuals of the pre-AVL looms but maybe this will be the ticket.

    I was able to get this off the AVL site: http://www.avlusa.com/downloads/AVL_12_Harness_Dobby_Manual.pdf

    Luckily it was the one for my loom.

    As far as I know, pre-AVL Ahrens looms didn’t have manuals officially published, since many were one-of-kind and made for the new owner’s specifications. I have seen some assembled by their users and passed on in single copies.

    One thing you can try is to look here: http://www.avlusa.com/resources/library/ These are for current AVL looms, if you find the one closest to your loom it might be very helpful if not completely the same.

    Or if you can upload some photos and a description of your loom, perhaps members of this forum can help you out!
