Louet David 27.5 inch or 35 inch looms with NEW Sliding Beater and Friction Brake included
FREE Additional Reed from Bountiful. The Louet David loom, a unique sinking shed jack loom, has become a popular small floor loom on todays market. Weaving on this loom gives you a real appreciation for the word balance. Balance is the key in this design. Louet’s skillfully engineered design has created a sturdy, well-balanced and easy to treadle loom.
Technically, the David is a compactly constructed floor loom that takes less floor space, but still has many of the same features of a large floor loom. The David uses an ingenious but simple to understand system of springs and pulleys, which produces a generous shed with a remarkably light treadling action. Like a counter balance or jack loom it has a singular tie-up. The wide shed however gives the impression of a countermarch: all harnesses that are not treadled down for the shed, are lifted by an ingenious spring system.
The David has a built-in raddle and shelf and comes standard with eight harnesses and ten treadles. The tie-up is made to the metal parallel lams, which can be tied either singly or in combinations, allowing for unbalanced weaves not possible on the usual kind of sinking shed loom, the counterbalance type.
The David loom is made of lacquered beech and ships in one box
