Table looms are great for classroom use, workshops, sampling, and small projects. They are ideal for learning about four- and eight-shaft pattern weaving, since the direct tie-up through the hand levers allows for infinite experimentation.



Our table looms are expertly crafted of the finest hard maple and built for maximum structural stability. Many schools use our table looms and find they weather well after many years of heavy use.

We use fine-toothed nylon gears on both the warp and cloth beams, which allow precise tension control. Our front-mounted levers make shaft selection easy to reach with either hand. Front-mounted levers also make it easy to see at a glance which shafts are raised.

Schacht table looms are available in three weaving widths — 15″, 20″, and 25″ — with four or eight shafts. The looms come with a stainless steel reed in your choice of 6, 8, 10, 12, or 15 dents. Inserted eye heddles, two apron rods, and three lease sticks are also included. A double back beam is available for all table loom widths.


Table Loom Stand

Our X-frame floor stand makes our table loom the correct height to be used with a standard chair. Installation is simple — just fit the holes in the base of the loom onto pins in the stand. The floor stand will fit older model table looms by drilling holes in the bottom of the table loom using the drill guide provided.
