|20+ Our 20+ device, unique to Woolhouse Tools, moves the treadle/lam tie-up from between the lams and treadles to the back of the loom. The weaver sits at the rear of the loom and does the complete tie-up from there. Doing the tie-up becomes an easy and pleasant occasion. We call the device 20+ because it adds 20 years of weaving to a weaver's weaving life.
We offer the 20+ as an add-on for looms other than our Kirsten and Gertrude looms. 20+ can be added to most countermarch looms, the main requirement is that the loom's treadles be hinged at the rear.
How it works: In a standard countermarch loom there's one tie-up cord for each treadle eye. The weaver raises each tie-up cord to the required upper or lower lam and pegs the tie-up cord in place there. For 20+, each tie-up cord becomes two long cords, one from the upper lam and one from the lower. The cords, in pairs, descend to the treadles, and run to a pegboard at the loom's rear.
|The peg columns are in pairs, left--higher--for upper lams, right--lower--for lower lams.To do a tie-up the weaver simply tugs on the appropriate cord and pegs it. The cords not engaged are left slack. The picture shows cords in place for the most left treadle only.
|The pricing formula is in two parts, a base price for all kits plus a price relating to the loom's number of shafts and treadles. The formula: Base Price + (shafts x treadles x tie-up price) + applicable taxes + 10% packing and shipping. For a sample price please see FAQ No. 1.
The 20+ kit consists of a pegboard custom built and drilled for your loom, the woodwork and hardware required to attach the device to your loom, a complete set of new lam to peg-board tie-up cords cut to length, two sizes and sets of screw eyes for your treadles and treadle beam, Texsolv straight pegs for every hole in the pegboard, and no-cuss instructions.
You supply the ability to use an electric hand drill, a capacity to follow instructions to the letter, treadles hinged at the rear floor loom, and a profound desire to add 20 years to your weaving life.
