This 40cm (16″) 24 shaft weaving loom is a combination of popular features from other Louet looms, many unique innovative ideas, and the well known dobby loom concept.
The Louet Magic Dobby loom was designed with several purposes in mind. First as a multi-harness loom that was more affordable than some of the alternatives. A small loom that was portable and a perfect sampler loom.
The loom comes with a stand but can be converted into a table loom. This very versatile feature allows the loom to act as a table loom while at a workshop, and a floor loom in your home. In order to take the loom to a workshop, just fold the front clothbeam and back warp beam sections.
There is a single treadle, which is attached to the floor stand, to raise the shafts and a lever with a detachable handle that can be attached to raise the shafts. Both cloth and warp beams are tightened with a ratchet system.
With the mechanical dobby, additional program blocks can easily be added or removed as your pattern needs change. After you exceed 45 bars, it is recommended to add a weight to the chain so that sufficient tension is maintained on the bars to ensure proper movement as the chain is advanced.
Dimensions: height 140cm, depth 100cm and width 58cm
The loom is supplied with the castle section assembled and a floor stand with treadle, 30 Dobby Bars with 600 Pegs, swivel (pivot) beater system, a raddle, a stainless steel reed 40-10 (metric), 600/800 Texsolv heddles, lease and tie-up sticks and sixteen warp sticks.
