Standard Carbon Steel Reeds

Available in 6 - 15 Dent & 15.75" - 60" Width

Our Standard Carbon Steel Reeds are available in a variety of dents (6, 8, 10 and 12 are the most popular).
Carbon Steel Reeds (which ARE NOT rustproof) are an alternative to steel reeds. They cost less but are  inferior to stainless steel.

If you are interested in any sizes not listed, please call or check out our custom reed page. In determining the length of a reed to buy, understand that the lengths we specify are the approximate weaving widths, not the actual length of the reed, which will be approximately .75 to 1 inch longer. Examine how your reed fits in your beater to determine if total length is critical (normally critical when, in addition to the top and bottom rails, there is some type of vertical support on each end of the beater that restricts total reed length). Different looms handle this in different ways. You can determine your weaving width by measuring the inside of your harness.

Don't order the wrong size reed. If in doubt, call us - 800-441-9665.

Note regarding height: all reeds are 4 3/4" to 5" high and will fit most looms.Almost all  beaters have adjustments for the bearer rails that allow different height
s. If reed height is important for the design of your beater, call us first. We can help.

If you need a dent size other than what we list, we can accommodate any size and any dent - including metric and 1/2 dent sizes.

Note about our reeds: our main supplier of reeds has updated  the manner of construction of reeds. Our reeds use a hard plastic cover for the top and bottom rails of the reed; older versions used a tape-like cover. The new reeds are no longer made with a heavy end support as the new manner of construction eliminates the need. The stated length of the new reeds is still the weaving width but in reality you may be able to weaving 3-6 additional dents, or maybe .5 inches more. We think you will like the new style and they will provide years of service.

Note: Items with a shipping length of 48” and longer are subject to a surcharge, regardless of the shipping method selected. (Fee is imposed by the shipping carriers.)
