Modeled after the looms in the "Gobelin" school in Paris, this particular set-up can be used as a tapestry loom or for making rugs. The 2 shaft version has two shafts, a beater and two treadles to make the shed. The warp can obtain a very high tension by tightening two heavy screws located on each side of the loom. The 0 shaft version is a very sturdy tapestry loom and you can add the 2 shafts later. The loom is six feet high and has a depth of 20".
