For the 2021 Holiday Season, Schacht is offering their classic 8 shaft Standard Floor Loom made with solid Cherry wood with a FREE Standard Floor Loom trap included. This can be ordered through December 30st, 2021 only! This loom will be shipped directly to you from Schacht approximately 5 weeks after placing your order!
Schacht’s Standard Floor Loom has a high castle, and is available with 36″ and 45″ weaving widths. The looms with both widths work the same way, the only notable difference is the difference in weaving widths. The high castle includes a storage tray; you will also appreciate holes drilled in the top of the castle uprights for an extension lamp.
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. Schacht employs a parallel lamm system that gives our looms a light treadling action without any adjustment of tie-up cords.
Schacht's 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.
Other special features of 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, and an adjustable open-sided beater. Their 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.
