Leclerc Nilus II Loom

leclerc nilus countermarch loomOne of Leclerc's most popular floor looms, the Nilus II offers a wide variety of options. The Leclerc Nilus II is available as a Jack type loom (with or without back hinged treadles), a counter balanced loom or as a countermarch loom.

All Nilus II looms have a folding back beam which has been strengthened with stabilizer foot and non-sliding polyvinyl footpads at the base to keep the loom from sliding. It is equipped with a friction brake to provide a perfect tension that is easily released. The shed is always good with any combination of tie-up. The front cloth beam and back breast beams are removable for easy threading, and the warp beam is also removable for outside beaming when required. The Nilus II loom is equipped with a regular plain beam to which a set of rake-like pieces can be added to convert it into a sectional warp beam. (Optional)

All Nilus II looms come complete with a steel reed (your choice of 6, 8, 10 or 12 dent, please choose below), 1000 (1200 or 1500 depending on the loom width) wire heddles, 1 boat shuttle, 12 plastic bobbins, one reed and heddle hook, two lease sticks, 2 warp rods, 2 beam sticks, 2 cords, 2 aprons, assembly instructions and assembly DVD and the book "Warp and Weave". Choose from three weaving width.

Leclerc Nilus II Jack Loom

On the Nilus II jack-type 4 Harness version, the top shelf can be easily removed, allowing easy access to the shafts for the addition or removal of heddles. Heddles used are 12½" long.

The Leclerc Nilus II has independent shafts, guided into slides at each end, preventing friction of shaft frames which are pushed upwards by an underneath mechanism. Treadles are front hinged like other conventional looms (not shown).

Leclerc Nilus II Jack Loom with Back Hinged Treadles

leclerc nilus II loom

As with all loom designs there are some tradeoffs. With the Jack Loom the problem most often cited was the difficulty in getting a good shed with 6+ Shaft weave structure. Leclerc's new design has overcome this problem. The new design features the treadles anchored at the rear of the Loom, with a new unique, Rocker mechanism that insures even tension on all tie-up cords with the treadles in both the rest or depressed position. This new design provides the weaver with the easier treadling of multi harness designs, comparable to that of a 4 harness loom. You can still fold the loom with the warp attached if you need to move the loom.

Leclerc Nilus II Countermarch Loom

leclerc nilus II loom

This countermarch system has one set of lams, two sets of pulleys above the shafts and one set of pulleys below. The lams raise the shafts  while the treadle cord attached to the lower part of the shaft frame lowers the others.

In a countermarch loom, every shaft is actively involved in each shed: each shaft is either lifted or pulled down by each pedal. Uneven shed like 3 shafts against 1 is always large and clean. Because you actually lift or pull down every shaft, you never have any problem with one shaft floating when it should not.

Please choose your loom type and weaving width and then your choice of reed. Additional reeds can be ordered separately on the Leclerc Weaving Accessories page. Other upgrades below.
