Amazing new AVL Jacquard

My mouth is watering, but, even could I afford this wonderful gadget, where the HELL would I put it???  Also would have to reinforce the floor.  Oh well.  Lottery tickets, anybody?

"We've just finished building our second Technical Education Loom (TEL) and are proud to say there's no other loom like it in the world.

Its custom features include:
  • Rapier system designed specifically to work with technical fibers (fiberglass and Kevlar)
  • 1200 hooks with 8" weaving space (150 EPI)

Who wants one?"
