Just wondering if people were hanging out here, wanting to talk weaving?
Reading Anni Albers. Working on a challenge weave for one of my guilds. Amazed at all the new ways weavers have been connecting this past year!
Yesss!! Laura I use so many of the tips I learned from you every day I weave! I am hanging out here and would love the chat!
I was loaned a tabletop Schacht 4 Shaft Loom. I am new to weaving. The 16" metal reed is rusted. Not being my loom, I didn't want to soak it, and try to restore the reed The reed is a 12 epi.
The Reed measures 16" the Heddle widths are 15". Looking online to replace the reed, I cannot find a 16" length. Looking for some insight, on what to purchase.
Schacht still makes table looms, so if you're in doubt about the reed fitting they are your best bet for purchasing a new reed. Their site says their table looms are 15" weaving widths. You can always purchase a smaller (narrower) reed for use with a loom, just not a wider one.
Have you checked with the original owner to ask their thoughts on trying to clean/soak the rusty one?
If you do just want to purchase a new reed you can try finding a dealer on the Schacth site https://www.schachtspindle.com/product/stainless-steel-reeds/
Weaving a reality! :)
