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!
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. Used 3/4 inch dowels, made one peg removable to make it easier to take off the warp. Thank you Joyce and hubby!
So glad you're enjoying it! Thank you for your support!
The only thing that turns is the frames. You might have to make the center holes in the frames a little bigger or put some soap in the holes to stop the squeaking. If it's very humid in your area, that will effect things so keep that in mind too.
