Product Details:

David 70 - 27 5/8” Weaving Width
Now with new beater system! See below for details
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 70 has a 70cm (27 5/8”) weaving width. 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.

David 90 - 35 3/8” Weaving Width
Now with new beater system! See below for details
The David loom is also available in 35 3/8” inch 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.

As of 2013, the David looms come with a new beater. This beater has the advantages of a standing beater. It has a shuttle race, and is adjustable in height. It stays back, close to the shafts to get the optimal shed. At both sides the beater is guided by special bearings along a stainless steel rod. By adjusting the position of these rods, the weaver can adjust the height of the beater. This newly engineered beater is so great, we know any weaver using an "old" David loom will want to switch over. For those looking for a quick way to do so, we sell conversion kits for both sizes of the David loom. Don't miss out on this great weaving innovation!

Matching bench – height 57cm (22 3/8”)
