Louët David Floor Loom
We are unable to accept new orders for Louët floor looms at the moment due to uncertainty around the import costs and processes for these large items now that the UK has left the single market & customs union.
If you are interested in this loom please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will keep you updated with information.
If you already have a loom on order from us this is unaffected.
The Louët David is a compact eight shaft loom that looks modest, but in functional quality, it surpasses many larger floor looms. It is available in 70 cm (27 5/8”) and 90 cm (35 3/8”) weaving width. You can use the drop down menu above to view the price for the different variants of the Louët David Floor Loom.
Like a counter balance or a jack loom it has a singular tie-up. The shed however gives is of similar size to that on a countermarch. All the shafts that are not pulled down by a treadle, are lifted 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.
This second generation David loom has two major improvements:
- A new sliding beater. It has the advantages of a standing beater. It has a shuttle race, it is adjustable in height and it stays back, close to the shafts to get the optimal shed. At both sides the beater is guided with special bearings along a stainless steel rod. By adjusting the position of the rods you can adjust the height of the beater.
- The friction brake for the warp beam is no longer an accessory, but comes standard with the loom.
The David is made of lacquered beech and comes with the castle section pre-assembled to ease the set up of the loom. The David has a built-in raddle and shelf and included are a stainless steel reed, Texsolv heddles, tie-up and lease sticks and sixteen warp sticks.
