Loom add-ons and overshot samples

I am weaving 8 shafts overshot variation samples for a class I'm taking at our weaving guild.

Older Glimakra came with lower lamms of the same size than the upper ones. I made new thicker and longer lower lamms to help balancing the shafts. But still the new ones still weren't heavy enough, I attached a couple of 12" nails to each of them with rubber bands. I often use this trick on my wider loom.

Also made two extra threadles, the loom only came with 8.

Plus a wooden loom fluorescent light box.
