Table looms are great for classroom use, workshops, sampling, and small projects. They are ideal for learning about four- and eight-shaft pattern weaving, since the direct tie-up through the hand levers allows for infinite experimentation.
Schacht table looms are expertly crafted of the finest hard maple and built for maximum structural stability. Many schools use Schacht table looms and find they weather well after many years of heavy use.
Schacht uses fine-toothed nylon gears on both the warp and cloth beams, which allow precise tension control. The front-mounted levers make shaft selection easy to reach with each hand. Front-mounted levers also make it easy to see at a glance which shafts are raised.
Schacht table looms are available in three weaving widths -15″, 20″, and 25″- with four or eight shafts. The looms come with a stainless steel reed in your choice of 6, 8, 10, 12, or 15 dents. Flat steel heddles, two apron rods, and three lease sticks are also included. A double back beam is available for all 8 shaft table loom width,
