The Delta's treadles are hinged from the back allowing for a very light treadling action. The DELTA is easily recognizable as the head of the LOUET line of Floor looms. The Louet Delta loom is comfortable, robust and technologically advanced, but above all a weaver's loom. Warp tension can be adjusted by fine increments. The floating breast beam insures tension is returned to exactly the same tension as you had before you advanced the cloth. Tie ups are easy. All treadles work the same way across the full width of the loom because of the parallel system. Also, all lams are horizontal which makes changing tie-ups quick and easy. For individual comfort, blocks are available to adjust treadle height. Harnesses are adjustable to allow you to create slack in the heddles for easier threading and tighten them for weaving. The brake system on the DELTA is a friction brake system on the warp beam, which is sturdy and easy to operate. A convenient advancing system is provided on the cloth beam. The DELTA is made of plantation grown ASH and is finished with a double coat of clear semi-gloss lacquer.
