The Archie Brennan copper pipe looms are easy-ish to build and wonderful to weave on.
Here’s a link to the instructions that we used to build mine: LINK
It struck me that warping the pipe loom would be so much easier if I could pivot and spin the loom.
I saw a video on Youtube that showed a woman rotating her loom to warp it and that got my gears clicking.
And, so, I designed a set of pivoting clamps for the pipe loom, and now warping the pipe loom is just BLISS!!!!!
Here’s the video tutorial for them in action:
By the way, the finished size of my clamps is:
I am pleased as can be with them!
Note: The clamps can easily be moved on or off looms that are already warped, so switching looms on and off a stand is easy peasy.

Thanks for sharing this! If the clamps can be put onto the loom AFTER warping, this would be an awesome way to move one loom off the stand and another onto the stand!
Absolutely, Jessica- there is no problem in moving them from loom to loom and on and off the stand. Very much a win win. 🙂
This was such a good point that I edited it into the body of the post. I thought that I had made it clear that this is one of the benefits of the pivoting clamps, so I am glad that you pointed out that I hadn’t. Thanks! 🙂
