Description

The David, a unique sinking shed jack loom, has become a popular small floor loom on today’s market. Weaving on this loom gives you a real appreciation for the word balance. “Balance” is the key in this design. Louet engineers’ skillful 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 remarkably light treadling. 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 has a built-in raddle and shelf and comes standard with eight harnesses and ten treadles.

The David loom is made of lacquered beech, and is easy to assemble, following step by step instructions (written by Sharon Alderman). Included in the standard eight harness version are 10 treadles, 800 “Texsolv” heddles for both David 70 and David 90, a stainless steel reed 40-10 (10 e.p.i.) with 12 cm (5”) inside height, 2 lease sticks and 16 warp sticks, plus instructions.

The David 70 has a 70 cm (27 5/8”) weaving width. The David loom is also available in 90 cm (35 3/8”) weaving width.

The back beam of this loom folds up to save space while the loom is idle. It also passes easily through any standard door frame.

The full dimensions (width x depth x height) of the loom are: 87 cm x 85 cm x 127 cm (34 ¼” x 33 ½” x 50”)

The David looms are packaged in one box for economical shipping. Weight: 30 kg (66 lb)

  1. The Louet David is the perfect loom for anyone who has limited space but still wants a loom that gives them the creative tools available with 8 shafts. The tie-up couldn't be easier and the weaving goes smoothly and quietly. The lock pin makes the threading and denting so easy, and the shelf gives you easy access to your shuttles, snips, pins, etc. as you work away. All in all, it's a beautiful, compact loom that's perfect for me.
