David 90 (35”) Loom
C$1,000.00 – C$4,795.00
“Small but Mighty” Named after David and Goliath, David is a compact 8 harness loom loaded with functionality. The David is a unique sinking shed jack loom with a 5″ shed and has become a very popular compact floor loom. David comes standard with 8 harnesses and while he may look modest, he has tremendous functionality and the weaving experience surpasses many large floor looms. Smooth and light-weight treadles due to a cam system give the David treadles a mechanical advantage. Weaving on this loom gives you a real appreciation for the word balance.
Like a counter balance or a jack loom, it has a singular tie-up. All harnesses sit in the up position. The harnesses that need to move to create a shed are pulled down by an ingenious spring system. The spring system also results in easy treadling: once the treadle is pushed down, the weight of your leg is sufficient to keep the shed open.
