Schacht Cherry Double Back Beam for 50th Anniversary Wolf Looms

These Cherry wood Double Back Beams are for the Limited Edition Schacht 50th Anniversary Wolf Looms.

Schacht floor looms can be fitted with a double back beam - and now this has been extended to include the Wolf Pup and Wolf Pup LT too.

A double back beam is a second beam that is attached behind the first beam and has a separate brake drum and brake release. The main purpose of using two beams is so that two warps can be separately tensioned. This can be useful if, for example, you wanted to weave a double weave fabric where one layer weaves longer than the other. In order to do this easily, you need to beam one layer on one beam and the other on the other beam and this keeps the length of the two layers separate from one another. 

If you would like to order a double back beam for an existing Schacht Wolf loom then please let us know the serial number of your loom. Older looms will require a slightly different beam to ensure a correct fit.

This is a special order item and shipping will be from July 2019.
