DIY Horizontal Warping Mill

I couldn't afford $300 for one of these and couldn't find any plans on the 'net so had to design my own. Space is at a premium so it had to completely fold, too. My husband and I engineered and assembled this one. By removing the cross pegs and one end on each side of the leg supports, the entire thing folds flat and can be hung on a wall or stored under a bed. What's not to love about that?!

I'm often asked how many yards it holds. That's hard to answer. I haven't made a warp, yet, that will max it out. It all depends on the size of the yarn you are using, how many ends you make and how many times you spin it. If you need to make insanely long warps, you can always make it wider. Each rotation yields 2 yards.

My friend Linda posted a video on how to use a horizontal warping mill with multi-threads using a paddle for super fast warping!

Actually "how many yards" can at least be partially answered. You should know how much 1 turn holds. That is easily calculated and is constant. Hopefully it is 1 yard?

Each rotation is 2 yards. I will update the de scrption.

OMG! Just finished making this, and it's a BEAUTY! Only cost $50 in materials ... and $400 worth of tools we already had. [icon_smile] Used 3/4 inch dowels, made one peg removable to make it easier to take off the warp. Thank you Joyce and hubby!

I bought the plans for the horizontal warping mill not long ago. Today, hubby and I went to the lumber store and got the materials. We went out to "The Man Garage" and started cutting and had it assembled in in under 2 hours. It's awesome! Thanks
