THE SCHACHT WOLF LOOMS
Schacht Wolf Pup, Baby Wolf, and Mighty Wolf looms are extremely well-designed and thoughtfully built, and are reportedly the most popular loom in the United States. They offer steel hub friction brake, brake release foot pedal, aluminum harness channels, and an attached beater pin. The loom comes with stainless steel heddle bars and a stainless steel reed (choice of 6, 8, 10, 12, 15 dent - we will contact you after we receive your order to discuss your choice of reed size). The beautifully finished wood is maple. For easy storage, they fold compactly to provide even a smaller "foot-print" than many table looms. Schacht looms are sold fully assembled, with the exception of placing the heddles and apron rods. The Wolf "Four Now - Four Later" (4N4L) is an eight harness loom shipped with only four harnesses installed, but with the capacity to add an additional four harnesses at any time in the future. 4N4L looms are shipped with all the heddles, tie-ups and other items normally included with an eight harness loom.

Schacht standard loom

THE SCHACHT STANDARD LOOMS
Schacht Standard floor looms come in two styles: Low Castle and 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. The Schacht Standard floor loom has an under-slung 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. They employ a parallel lamm system which gives these looms a light treadling action. Because of this parallel lamm, it isn't necessary to adjust the tie-up cords. The 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. Folded depth is 26".

Other special features of 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 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. Both the Standard Low Castle and the Standard High Castle looms are available in 36" and 46" wide weaving widths, in either maple or cherry. Standard floor looms are available in either Four Now-Four Later or 8 harness options. 4N4L standard looms are shipped with all the heddles, tie-ups and other items normally included with an eight harness loom. If you wish to substitute texsolv heddles for flat steel or optional inserted eye wire heddles, please email us after placing your order.

Schacht cranbrook weaving loom

THE SCHACHT CRANBROOK COUNTERMARCHE LOOM
The Cranbrook Loom is widely considered to be the finest Countermarche loom available today. This Scandinavian-style loom has mortise-and-tenon construction, powder-coated breast and rear beams, treadle locks, and a fully adjustable overhead beater. A countermarche loom is a balanced system of rising and sinking shafts. There are two sets of lamms, an upper suspended lamm and a lower pivoting lamm. Each shaft works independently, its operation not affecting that of the other shafts. The tie-up system of the Cranbrook employs a special size Texsolv nylon loop cord that remains permanently installed on the treadles and may be tied to either the upper or lower lamm.

The front, rear, and knee beams of powder-coated tubular steel give the loom added rigidity while affording better protection for the warp. The solid octagonal warp and cloth beams are 16-1/2" in circumference. The Cranbrook can be expanded from four to six or eight shafts at any time. The locking treadles are especially helpful for rug and tapestry weaving. Solid bronze ratchet gears, pawls, and beater hanger racks are featured on all Cranbrook Looms. The warp beam ratchet gear is released by a foot pedal.

The Cranbrook loom is available in 48", 60", and 72" weaving widths, and in 4 or 8 harnesses. Available accessories include: 12-treadle option, a second warp beam, sectional warp beam, tool tray, worm gear, sliding threading bench, beater weight, and tension box rail, and raddle.
