LOUET DELTA FLOOR LOOM, 43" or 51"
The Delta, the flagship of Louet line of looms with treadles that hinge at the back for the best possible treadling action. Like the "Spring" loom, due to its exceptional qualities to the application of the parallel countermarch system and moving breast beam are carried forward as features of the Delta Loom. The working of these systems is explained with the description of the Spring Loom. The springy tie-up device on the treadles provides a progressive shed. This means the shed widens gradually towards the back harnesses, so that the warp threads above and below in the shed are on even levels. The treadles and footbar hang conveniently at the same level. When the treadles and footbar are too low there are wooden blocks (special order) for heightening these. The Texsolv tie-up cords, pre-cut in the right lengths, make changing your tie-ups quick and easy. The Delta is equipped with a treadle for the friction brake device on the warp beam and a convenient advancing handle on the cloth beam. Included is a profiled lath on the breast beam which protects the woven fabric. The hardwood loom is made of ash. Apart from its fine appearance, ash has always been valued for its outstanding qualities of strength and resilience. The Delta is available in 110 (43") and 130cm (51") weaving widths. The middle part of the loom with the parallel countermarch cords, harnesses and lams will be delivered already assembled with 8 or 12 harnesses.
