Schacht Flip Folding Rigid Heddle Loom
Flip, this folding rigid heddle loom, is comfortable, compact, sturdy, and a pleasure to weave on. Designed for high performance, this loom folds in a jiffy for storage or transport. Built in the USA of maple and hand rubbed with a Danish oil finish, this loom has a high quality wood and gear system. This loom is perfect for beginners and experienced weavers alike.
Weave in comfort. Choose three different weaving modes: use the rear leg for hooking to a table edge, clamp it to a table for stand-up weaving, or install it on our convenient trestle stand. Warp in a flash.
Fine-toothed nylon ratchets provide precise tension control. The conveniently located heddle blocks on the sides of the loom hold the rigid heddle in the up, down, or neutral position. The heddle, available in 5, 8, 10 and 12 dents per inch, is made of durable ABS plastic, with large eyes and slots. Flip is ideal for plain weaves and pick-up patterns.
Flip is available in 15”, 20”, 25” and 30" weaving widths, and includes a 10 dent reed, warping peg, 2 shuttles, 2 clamps, threading hook, and complete warping and weaving instructions.

This has been a great loom for me. I use it to make cotton hand towels but you can make so much more. I purchased it second-hand, and am not sure of it's age, but it still is sturdy and works well. Occasionally the tension slips if the ratchet dog doesn't engage fully in the slots as you advance the warp, but overall it's a great loom. I have the stand too, which puts the loom at the perfect height for me. I keep it on the stand for warping and weaving. I have owned several Schacht products and have not been disappointed with any of them. And they are made in America. Can't beat that!
