Leclerc Sectional Warping Tools
These items are SPECIAL ORDER, with delivery within 2-4 weeks. Special ordered looms are not eligible for free shipping or returns or exchanges.
The tension box is used with the Sectional Warp Beam and is adjustable to fit any Leclerc floor loom. Warp threads pass through a comb, and around wooden dowels that place the thread under consistent tension. The tension is adjustable for uniform tension on all warp ends as they are wound from the spool rack to the loom. Two open 12 threads per inch (4.8 / cm) combs allow easy threading and help guide threads into the proper section.
Tension Box Counter:
The counter is placed on the tension box and measures the yardage of the warp to ensure that all sections are of the same length. Easily removable from the tension box.
Tension Box Extension:
This extension makes one comb closer to your warp gives you better control on the width of the yarn section (1" or 2") so the guides are not needed. Height of comb is adjustable.
Sectional Warping Guides:
A set of 8 metal pieces that fit onto the steel divisions for each section of the sectional warp beam to guide threads into the correct section during warping. They prevent the warp ends from going into other sections, or from staying on top of the divisions. When the section is filled, transfer to the next section.
Sectional Warping Dividers:
Small plastic pieces that fit between the steel divisions to create an even surface for the warp to wrap around. Useful when beaming long warps. They are placed in each section every 5 or 10 yards (meters) to prevent uneven build-up of threads and keep uniform tension in the warp. They all have to be placed in the same turn.
