NILUS II
Jack-type, Counter-Balance or new Countermarch

The Nilus II (4 shafts) available in three versions, folds to a depth of 27" (70 cm).

The Nilus II loom has been designed with a stabilizer foot, for a better stability. The shed is always good with any combination of tie-up.

The counter-balanced version is built with an integrated shed regulator. So it is possible to weave any kind of material.

On the jack-type version, the top can be easily removed, allowing easy access to the shafts for the addition or removal of heddles. Heddles used are 12" (31,7 cm) long. It is a loom with independant shafts, guided into slides at each end, preventing friction of shaft frameswhich are pushed upwards by an underneath mechanism.

All Nilus II loom have non-sliding polyvinyl foot padsat its base, keeping it solid on the floor.

It is equipped with a friction brake giving a perfect tension every time. The front cloth beam ,front and back breast beams are removable for easy threading, and the warp beam is also removable for outside beaming when required.

All looms are 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.

Special kits have been designed to convert the loom from one system to the other. (counter-balance to jack-type or countermarch and jack-type to counter-balance or countermarch). You can convert the regular 4 shaft jack-type into an 8 shaft jack-type loom with the 4 extra shafts kit but if you plan to do so it is be better to buy our 4 shaft now - 4 more later model. This four now, four later model already has the wide castle and castle top so you can buy our kit of 4 shafts and 4 treadles when desired.

NILUS II COUNTERMARCH
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 shaft connected by a PRE-CUT METAL CABLE COVER WITH NYLON  and a pulley, while the treadle cord attached to the lower part of the shaft frame lower the one we want . 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. In our diagram you can see the treadle pulling down shaft #1 while the other three are lifted by the action of the lam. When the lam moves down, the cord attached to it goes around the lower pulley, then around the upper one and finally, lifts the shaft attached to it. More details in our technical report.

NEW!
 NILUS II JACK-TYPE LOOM
WITH BACK HINGE TREADLES

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 construction. Our 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 Treadle Cords with the Treadles in both the rest or depressed position. This new design provides the weaver with the ease of Leg Treadling multi Shaft designs, comparable to  that of a 4 shaft. In addition, we experience a wide, clean shed on all Shafts. Using a new procedure, the new Treadle design retains the folding feature designed into the original Nilus II. We, at Leclerc, are very excited about this new Jack Loom Treadling concept. This system is also available in the Nilus and Artisat loom.
