The David III, 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. David is a compact eight harness loom that looks modest, but in functional quality, it surpasses many large floor looms. It is available in 70 cm (27 5/8") and 90 cm (35 3/8") weaving width. Like a counter balance or jack loom it has a singular tie-up. The wide shed however gives the impression of a countermarch: all harnesses that are not treadled down for the shed, are lifted by an ingenious spring system. The friction brake is included as of 1 Jan 14. David is made of lacquered beech and comes with the castle section assembled to ease the set up of the loom. David has a built-in raddle and shelf and included are a stainless steel reed 40-10 (metric), 800 Texsolv heddles (280 mm), tie-up and lease sticks and sixteen warp sticks.
