David 8 Harness Floor Loom with New Beater
The Louet David is a compact eight harness loom that looks modest, but in functional quality, it surpasses many large floor looms. It is available in 70 cm (27 5/8") and 90 cm (35 3/8") weaving width. 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 friction brake is included as of January 1st, 2014. David is made of lacquered beech and comes with the castle section assembled to ease the set-up of the loom. David has a built-in raddle and shelf and included are a stainless steel reed 40-10 (metric), 800 Texsolv heddles (280 mm), tie-up and lease sticks and sixteen warp sticks. Note: Bench is not included.
