2 Treadle Reproduction Loom #11
The price on these will vary depending on wood used.
This is my interpretation of a 18th century tape loom. I have made some updates for better ease of use.
This lovely 2 Treadle loom is handmade from Red Maple Ambrosia, Curly Maple and Black Walnut. It measures approximately 24" from the floor to the top of the base (not including castle and warping rods) and is 12.75" wide at it's widest area of the top and 26" long. The heddles have 60 Holes/slots and are made from Curly Maple.
This loom is built so that is can be completely disassembled for flat storage and for shipping. It weighs 30lb when packaged up for shipping and about 23 pounds assembled.
Your loom comes with a book with very easy assembly instructions and instructions on how the two heddles are to be warped. A prior customer "Susan" created a new instruction manual on warping her an additional two more ways. I'd read through them all and decide which you will try. There are no other instructions or patterns.
Find a table that is 24 inches tall and sit under it to be sure that you will be happy with your loom. There is no way to raise it so it you are very tall and have super long legs this might not be the loom for you. You do not actually sit under the loom, only your chins and feet will be under the loom. This is the reason I've made her wider than the original.
You can see videos of this loom on the What's New page of this site.
The weaving tools are made from 1/4" Curly Maple and inlcude:
Large Knife Edge shuttle
Small gepha shuttle
Large Rectangle boat shuttle
WPI measure tool
Also included is a professionally printed instruction book and a wonderful Hand Forged Sley Hook made by Celtic Swan https://celticswan.com/
The images are of the loom that you are purchasing and the image of the tools is the complete set that is included. I do not claim to be a master woodworker or finisher so keep in mind this is not "fine" furniture. If you fret over little things then you will not be happy with this loom or most any of my weaving tools.
The two treadle weaving loom is my interpretation of an 18th century loom. It is my design that the entire looms can be taken apart including the legs and all the top assembly parts. This is my design and is copyrighted. :)
