Is your Strcto a table loom or a floor loom?
I'm starting to jones for a table loom.
It's a table loom, but I put it on a LeClerc stand, so it now has treadles.
It's ancient - at least 40 years old - and it's rather cranky and stiff. The kids couldn't get a shed to open, even after *tons* of WD-40, 30W oil, and even vegetable oil. The stand makes it usable - except for the brake mechanism, which is hard for *me* to operate. I'm pondering fixes for it...
Table looms are fun, but they make you want a floor loom bad. It's hard to keep going - your hands have to stop and change the shed. They're great for sampling and small projects, though, and much faster to warp.
Although - you already have a floor loom, don't you? *g*
