Description

COLONIAL V2, 45" or 60"
TRADITIONAL LOOM
A loom reminiscent of those our ancestors used, with many major improvements which makes this one of the best Leclerc looms ever produced. Its great adaptability allows it to be used as a general purpose loom, or for any specific purpose required by an inventive and creative weaver.
Made of the finest Canadian maple, it is finished with clear lacquer and varnish so that the beauty of the natural grain and color of the lumber remains visible. This loom can have 4, 8 or 12 shafts by adding one or two extra 4 shaft kits.
Because the jacks are in the loom castle, less pressure is needed to lift the shafts.
The overhead beater is optional.

February 2008
We have made major modifications to our Colonial model which now makes this model our premier jack type loom.
- Wider and cleaner shed
- The Back Hinge Treadle is now lower in front for easier treadling
- Jacks now ride on bushings
- New tie-ups system reduces the time for tie-ups and minimzes the occurance of cord mix-up.
