Optional back-hinged treadles reduce the effort needed to lift the harnesses. Treadle gates keep the back-hinged treadles in postition so they arenít free swinging and a tie-up rocker mechanism ensures a clean shed. We recommend this option for the eight harness loom. Other options include sectional beam, double warp beam, flying shuttle beater, and the add 4-harness kit. LeClerc looms come unassembled.
One stainless steel reed comes with the loom. Choose from 6, 8, 10, or 12 dent reed. Enter your choice in the text box above. Loom ships with 12 dent reed if no preference is listed.
