Schacht Standard Floor Loom - 45"/115cm

Free delivery of this loom to UK addresses

You will receive a £100 discount* off weaving accessories you order with your loom

Once your loom is delivered you will also receive a 10% discount code** for use on any orders of yarn, code valid for 12 months

This loom is built to order. Please allow up to 10 weeks for delivery.

All Schacht Standard floor looms may be ordered with eight or Four Now-Four Later*** shaft options. The number of shafts you choose will depend on the kind of weaving you intend to do. Though most weave structures can be woven on four shafts, additional shafts increase your pattern options extensively. If you have a keen interest in pattern drafting and weave structures, eight shafts will allow you to fully develop this interest.

This loom has an under-slung jack mechanism to raise the shafts. The jacks pivot from two points equidistant from the center and lift the shafts by pushing up on the center point. It employs a parallel lamm system which gives the loom a light treadling action. Because of this parallel lamm, it isn’t necessary to adjust the tie-up cords.

The Schacht Standard uses a tie-up system that is quick and easy to use. Pre-measured nylon tie-up cords hang from the lamms and are attached to a treadle by sliding the appropriate cords into the treadle slot. This makes changing tie-ups very fast.

Other special features of the Standard floor looms include:

  • friction reducing aluminum shaft channels,
  • a back beam which folds with or without a warp on the loom,
  • removable back and breast beams, and
  • an adjustable open-sided beater.

The braking system employs a ratchet and dog on the cloth beam and a friction brake on the warp beam. This combination give you precise tension control at all times.

Please note that this loom is supplied as a flat-pack kit which requires assembly. Full instructions are included.

We recommend making a partial payment which acts as a deposit for your floor loom.

You get a £100 discount on any accessories with your floor loom and we will organise this discount for you.

Once we've received your order we will you email as soon as we can you discuss what accessories you would like with your loom. This will be emailed to you as an invoice for you to check and you can add or remove items before your loom is shipped. However, do be aware that some items may take longer to arrive than the floor loom itself. Payment for accessories is due at the same time as the final payment.

We normally are able to give you an update on when we expect the loom to be shipped from the factory within a couple of weeks of you placing your order.

The final payment for your order is due when the loom has shipped from the factory. You will receive 2 invoices, 1 for the remainder of the payment for the floor loom and the second for the accessories.

We can take payment by BACS, card or Paypal. If you want to pay by BACS do let us know as we will need to arrange a seperate invoice for this which will include our bank details. If you have any questions at all then do contact us.
