Measuring up for a New Reed

New Reed, Cut to MeasureWhen ordering a new reed, check the overall length of the reed you are replacing. This includes the end caps which add about 2.5-4cm to the total length.

The reed height is normally defined by the size of the opening in the beater. Most looms are flexible in the height of the reed they can accept, which is defined by the shed created between the beater and the upper warps.
