Schacht Spindle Company’s Standard Floor Loom comes in low castle and high castle versions. Both versions are available with 36″ and 45″ weaving widths. Low Castle and High Castle looms take up identical floor space and function the same. The High Castle loom includes a storage tray and holes drilled in the top of the castle uprights for an extension lamp.
All Standard Floor Looms may be ordered with 8 or 4 Now-4 Later shafts. The 4 Now-4 Later model is an 8-shaft loom shipped with 4 shafts installed and the space to add an additional 4 shafts. You can purchase a kit to add 4 shafts at a later time. These looms are shipped with all the heddles, tie-ups, and other items normally included with an 8-shaft loom.
The Standard Floor Loom has an underslung jack mechanism to raise the shafts. The jacks pivot from two points equidistant from the center and lift the shafts by pushing up on the center point. A parallel lamm system provides a light treadling action without any adjustment of tie-up cords.
The tie-up system is quick and easy to use. Pre-measured nylon tie-up cords hang from the lamms and are attached to a treadle by sliding the appropriate cords into the treadle slot. This makes changing tie-ups very fast.
Schacht’s Standard Floor Looms include:
- friction-reducing aluminum shaft channels
- a back beam that folds with or without a warp on the loom
- removable back and breast beams
- adjustable open-sided beater
- braking system employs a ratchet and dog on the cloth beam and a friction brake on the warp beam—this combination gives you precise tension control at all times.
