Schacht Flip 15" Rigid Heddle Loom
Comparing the different rigid heddle looms, I find this model includes all the best features. Arrives Assembled, Wood is finished, set up for a second heddle, includes minimum required tools to get you started. Can be mounted to a table or to optional floor stand. Folds for storage. Sturdy, well designed and constructed. Plus it is made in the U.S.A.
Folding rigid heddle loom, is comfortable, compact, sturdy, and a pleasure to weave on. Designed for high performance, this loom folds in a jiffy for storage or transport.
Weave in comfort. Choose three different weaving modes: use the rear leg for hooking to a table edge, clamp it to a table for stand-up weaving, or install it on the optional convenient trestle stand.
Fine-toothed nylon ratchets provide precise tension control. The conveniently located heddle blocks on the sides of the loom hold the rigid heddle in the up, down, or neutral position.
The heddle, available in 5, 8, 10 and 12 dents per inch, is made of durable ABS plastic, with large eyes and slots.
Flip is ideal for plain weaves and pick-up patterns. The exclusively-designed two heddle capabilities make sense of 2-heddle weaving for the first time (you will need two heddles of the same dent).
Warp in a flash. Included with Flip, are clamps and a warping peg for direct-loom warping. includes instructions for both direct and pre-measuring methods (using warp board sold separately).
The top cross brace allows long warps, up to 5-6 yards (depending on weight and winding paper), to be wound on the beams without impacting the size of the shed.
