Schacht Weaving Looms

Schacht Standard Weaving Looms

 Schacht High Castle Tray for mighty wolf loom
Schacht standard loomSchacht Standard floor loom comes in two styles:  The Standard Low Castle and The Standard High Castle. Though both looms take up identical floor space, the lower profile of the Low Castle model appears visually smaller.  A High Castle loom includes a storage tray and holes drilled in the top of the castle uprights for the swivel pin of an extension lamp, otherwise the looms function the same.  Both the Standard Low Castle and the Standard High Castle Schacht looms are available in 36" and 46" wide weaving widths. Shown above: Maple Standard High castle Loom with double back beam.

All Standard Schacht flofour harness loomor looms may be ordered with eight or Four Now-Four Later shaft options. The number of shafts you choose will depend on the kind of weaving you intend to do. Though most weave structures can be woven on four shafts, additional shafts will increase your pattern option extensively.

The Schacht Standard weaving 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 which gives our looms a light treadling action.  Because of this parallel lamm, it isn't necessary to adjust the tie-up cords. Shown above: Cherry Standard High Castle 8 Harness Loom

Schacht Jack Weaving LoomThe Schacht tie-up system is quick and easy to use. Premeasured 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 the Schacht Standard floor looms include: friction reducing aluminum shaft channels, a back beam which folds with or without a warp on the loom, removable back and breast beams, and an adjustable open-sided beater.  The Schacht braking system employs a ratchet and dog on the cloth beam and a friction brake on the warp beam. This combination give you precise tension control at all times. All Schacht Standard weaving looms come complete with your choice of reed (please choose below), flat steel heddles, , one 11" boat shuttle with bobbin, reed hook and lease sticks. Inserted eye heddles or Texsolv nylon string heddles may be substituted for a small additional charge. Shown above: Schacht Standard Low Castle Loom with lamp accessory. Manufactured with pride by Schacht Spindle Company in Colorado
