The kit consists of 4 wooden beams with holes drilled for metal loops, that divide the beam into 1 inch (25 mm) or 2 inch sections. The beams are attached with screws directly into the regular warp beam and the metal loops are inserted into the holes.
In sectional warping, you wind and beam on at the same time. Sectional warping is especially convenient for long warps and very fine threads.
Sectional warping does require the use a tension box (sold separately). The Glimakra Tension Box has a shed maker, revolution counter, adjustable tension dowel to control the amount of tension, two reeds to control the width of the warp, and an extension to place the threads at the correct width on the beam.
