Weaving width 70cm (27.5"), 8 shafts
The mechanical Dobby is a program bar with pegs system. The numbered holes in the program bars correspond with shafts of the loom. If you want a shaft to be raised, you place a peg in the corresponding hole of the program bar. Your program bar chain can be as long as you like; however, if the number of program bars becomes too great, you may want to consider an electronic Dobby.
The Octado mechanical dobby weaving loom has a similar operating method to the familiar Megado, giving a big counter marche shed and a very light treadling action.
The middle (castle) section of the Octado comes completely assembled. A detailed instruction manual will help you to complete the assembly without any problems. Included with the loom are 20 Dobby Bars with 100 pegs, a shelf and built-in raddle, a stainless steel reed (40 dents per 10cm), 600 x 330mm long Texsolv heddles, lease and tie-up sticks and sixteen warp sticks. Bench not included.
Dimensions: height 127cm, depth 99cm, width 115cm
