(available on SAORI CH60A-2 model)

This lets a weaver in a wheelchair roll in close to the loom.  The brace has 5 height settings, allowing you to raise the loom up to 12.5cm (4.9″) from the floor.  This is helpful for tall weaver as well !

 


Shuttle with Pegs

A weaver can easily move this shuttle by pushing the two pegs with a finger or a stick held in the month.  It is very easy to handle, with a wide slot to insert a medium-sized bobbin into and a large hole to fee the thread through.  Use this shuttle with the shuttle shelf.  Specially designed shuttle stoppers for the shuttle shelf will come with this shuttle.
