As of 2013, the David looms come with a new beater. This beater has all the advantages of a standing beater. It has a shuttle race, and is adjustable in height. It stays back, close to the shafts to get the optimal shed. At both sides the beater is guided by special bearings along a stainless steel rod. By adjusting the position of these rods, the weaver can adjust the height of the beater.
This newly engineered beater is so great, we know any weaver using an "old" David loom will want to switch over. These conversion kits are available for both sizes of the David loom. Don't miss out on this great weaving innovation!
