Louet David 8 Harness

The David is a compact eight harness loom that looks modest, but in functional quality, it surpasses many large floor looms. It is available in 70 cm (27 5/8") and 90 cm (35 3/8") weaving widths. Like a counter balance or jack loom it has a singular tie-up. The wide shed however gives the impression of a countermarch; all harnesses that are not treadled down for the shed, are lifted by an ingenious spring system. A friction brake is included, as of Jan. 1 2014. David is made of lacquered beech and comes with the castle section assembled to ease the set up of the loom. David has a built-in raddle and shelf. Included with the loom is a stainless steel reed 40-10 (metric), 800 texsolv heddles (280 mm), tie-up and lease sticks and 16 warping sticks.
