Small but Mighty. Named after David and Goliath, David is a compact 8 harness loom loaded with functionality. The David, a unique sinking 5-inch shed jack loom, has become a very popular alternative as an entry level floor loom. David is a compact eight harness loom that looks modest, but with tremendous functionality, it surpasses many large floor looms. Smooth and light-weight treadles due to a cam system give the David treadles a mechanical advantage. Weaving on this loom gives you a real appreciation for the word balance.
Like a counter balance or a jack loom, it has a singular tie-up. All harnesses that are not pulled down by a treadle are lifted by an ingenious spring system. The spring system also results in easy treadling: once the treadle is pushed down, the weight of your leg is sufficient to keep the shed open.
Available sizes, each equipped with 8 harnesses and 800 heddles:
- David 70: 27.5″ (70 cm) weaving width
- David 90: 35″ (90 cm) weaving width
