Standard Stainless Steel Reeds

SSREED

Typically Ships In:
1-3 Days

Stainless Steel Reeds (which are rustproof) are stronger and more durable than carbon steel reeds. We highly recommend them over carbon reeds. If you are interested in any sizes not listed (we do not list them all), 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 0.75 to 1.0 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 approximately 4.75" to 5" high and will fit most looms. Almost all beaters have adjustments for the bearer rails that allow different heights. 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. 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 0.5 inches more.

We know that you will like the new style and they will provide years of service.

The measurements below are Weaving Widths - Remember to add @ 0.75" to 1" to determine the total width of the reed.
