David 3 Floor Loom


These looms are brought in to order – if you would like an estimate on delivery dates or would like to order a David loom please either email or call.

The David III is an 8 shaft loom that is available in 70, 90cm and 110 cm weaving width.  It has a simple compact form, yet surpasses all expectations in function and quality.  With each treadle tie-up, the shed has the characteristics of a counter march loom: An ingenious spring system pulls those shafts upward, that are not pulled down by the treadle.  The spring system also makes the treadles easy to operate and when you sit behind a David for the first time, it is a remarkable experience: you expect to use more effort to depress a treadle.  If you have started to depress a treadle on the David, however, no additional effort is needed to keep the shed open due to the built-in cam system.

This third generation David has a significant improvement in the modified, floor hinged beater system with shuttle race.  It has the advantages of a standing upright: the shuttle race guides shuttles, is adjustable in height and rests close to the shafts for an optimal shed.  On both sides, the beater hinges on a stainless-steel shaft.  This hinge and thus the beater is adjustable in height.
David is made of white beech wood and is delivered partially assembled.  This loom comes standard with: a 40-10 stainless steel reed, 800 Texsolv heddles (280 mm, pre-assembled), lease sticks and tie-up sticks, and sixteen warp separator sticks.  The friction brake is also standard with the David 3.
The loom is 87 / 107 / 127 cm wide, 85 cm deep and 127 cm high.  The warp beam can be folded up, at which time the folded depth is only 66 cm deep.
