Description
 
The David, a unique sinking shed jack loom, has become a popular small floor loom on today’s market. Weaving on this loom gives you a real appreciation for the word balance. “Balance” is the key in this design. Louet engineers’ skillful design has created a sturdy, well-balanced and easy to treadle loom.
Technically, the David is a compactly constructed floor loom that takes less floor space, but still has many of the same features of a large floor loom. The “David” uses an ingenious but simple to understand system of springs and pulleys, which produces a generous shed with remarkably light treadling. The tie-up is made to the metal parallel lams, which can be tied either singly or in combinations, allowing for unbalanced weaves not possible on the usual kind of sinking shed loom, the counterbalance type.
The David has a built-in raddle and shelf and comes standard with eight harnesses and ten treadles. The David 70 has a 70cm (27 5/8”) weaving width.
The David loom is made of lacquered beech, and is easy to assemble, following step by step instructions (written by Sharon Alderman). Included in the standard eight harness version are 10 treadles, 800 “Texsolv” heddles for both David 70 and David 90, a stainless steel reed 40-10 (10 e.p.i.) with 12 cm (5”) inside height, 2 lease sticks and 16 warp sticks, plus instructions.

The David now comes with the new beater. The only one that is pictured has an overhead beater, the new ones are much like the Spring's and are attached at the floor. If you have an older David there is a conversion kit.
