The Louet Delta is a modern parallel counter marche loom with eight or twelve harnesses and in two weaving widths: 110 cm (43 3/8") and 130 cm (51 1/4").
The Delta is equipped with a friction brake device on the warp beam and a ratchet advancing system on the cloth beam. Delta is made of lacquered ash and comes with the castle section assembled.
The loom includes:
- a built-in raddle
- shelf for storage
- stainless steel reed 40-10 (metric)
- 1200/1400 Texsolv heddles (330 mm)
- lease sticks
- sixteen warp sticks.
The Delta is easily recognizable as the head of the Louet line of floor looms. It is comfortable, robust and technologically advanced, but above all a weaver's loom. Warp tension can be adjusted by fine increments to ensure the tension is just the way you want it. The floating breast beam ensures tension is returned to exactly the same tension as you had before you advanced the cloth.
Tie-ups are easy. Every treadle is tied to every harness which means you only have to depress one treadle at a time. All treadles work the same way across the full width of the loom because of the parallel system. The Delta's treadles are hinged from the back allowing for a very light weight treadling action. Also, all lams are horizontal which makes changing tie-ups quick and easy.
For individual comfort, blocks are available to adjust treadle height. Harnesses are adjustable to allow you to create slack in the heddles for easier threading and to tighten them for weaving The brake on the Delta is a friction brake system on the warp beam, which is sturdy and easy to operate. A convenient advancing system is provided on the cloth beam. The Delta is made of plantation grown ash and is finished with a double coat of clear semi-gloss lacquer.
