Schacht End-Delivery Shuttles
The Schacht End-Delivery Shuttles are the ultimate in shuttles
designed especially and precisely for handweavers. They are lightweight,
comfortable to throw and catch, adjustable to a variety of yarns, and
easy-really easy-to thread. Their end-delivery shuttles are available in
12" (5 oz) and 15" (6½ oz) sizes.
How the end-delivery shuttle works:
end-delivery shuttle has a pirn which remains stationary, instead of a
free-spinning bobbin. The weft yarn unwinds off the pirn’s tip when the
shuttle is in motion and stops unwinding when the shuttle stops. The
yarn comes off the pirn and goes through a set of tension pads and comes
out of the shuttle at a constant tension. This even delivery of weft
causes less draw-in, which in turn makes better selvedges.
the temptation to handle the weft yarn at all. Simply adjust the
tension with the enclosed Allen wrench to suit the yarn you are using
and allow your shuttle to do the work. You'll love how you can weave
making your weaving go more rapidly than ever.
