Schacht Standard Floor Looms

Schacht manufactures beautiful floor looms in maple or cherry that are a delight to weave on. They are sturdy and function beautifully. Schacht is known for their uncompromising standards and attention to detail. Their customer service is outstanding.

Our Standard floor loom comes in two styles: The Standard Low Castle and The Standard 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. Both the Standard Low Castle and the Standard High Castle looms are available in 36" and 46" wide weaving widths.

All Standard floor looms may be ordered with eight or Four Now-Four Later shaft options. The number of shafts you choose will depend on the kind of weaving you intend to do. Though most weave structures can be woven on four shafts, additional shafts increase your pattern options extensively. If you have a keen interest in pattern drafting and weave structures, eight shafts will allow you to fully develop this interest.

The Schacht Standard floor loom has an underslung 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. We employ a parallel lamm system which gives our looms a light treadling action. Because of this parallel lamm, it isn't necessary to adjust the tie-up cords.

Our tie-up system is quick and easy to use. Premeasured 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.

Other special features of our 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. Our 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.

Sectional Beam Sectional warp beams are available for our floor looms: Wolf looms, Standard floor looms, and Cranbrook looms. Our sectional beams are easily assembled and can be installed on the existing warp beam of your Schacht loom at any time. Sectional beams for Standard floor looms have 2" sections and a one half yard circumference; Baby Wolf and Mighty Wolf sectional beams have 2" sections and a one foot circumference. They are available in maple or cherry with maple pegs.

Raddles help keep a warp spread evenly as it is wound onto the warp beam. Ours have built-in clamps and can be attached to either the loom's back beam or the shuttle race of the beater. Raddles come with plated pins inserted every inch and with holes drilled every half inch with enough extra pins included should you prefer half-inch spacing.

Sectional Beam Our sectional warp beam kit is added to an existing beam and has two-inch sections and a 12" circumference. It comes as a kit which is added to your existing beam. The Wolf looms can be folded to a depth of 20" with the sectional beam on.
