Leclerc Weaving Benches

$93.00

Selecting the proper Loom Bench is one of the most important decisions a weaver must make. The ability to weave over long periods of time without excessive interruptions for fatigue depends heavily on the weavers comfort.

There are 3 bench types available from Leclerc all made in Canadian Maple for years and years of use. 

The Basic Bench is available in two heights (23 and 26"), it is not adjustable. It comes with two large compartments at the side and a large compartment under the seat for storage of tools, shuttles, bobbins and yarn. The 23" bench (38" wide) is recommended for the Artisat 36", Nilus, Inca, Mira and Fanny looms and the 26" (44" wide) for Nilus ii, Colonial, Nilart and Quebec Looms. 

The Adjustable Bench is recommended for the Compact 24", Artisat 24" and Minerva looms and is adjustable from 21-25", length of seat is 24". 

From the Leclerc website, info on the Rocking Bench... 

"Up until now, finding a Bench with just the right height and seating area has been difficult, but even when that is accomplished, the most common complaint by weavers is the leg numbness experienced from the seat edge cutting into the back of the legs(especially for shorter weavers).

Leclercs new Rocking Bench has solved the dilemma.

Adjustable in 1" increments from 21" to 26 3/4" this Bench will satisfy virtually all height requirements. In addition, the seat can be set at two additional angles(84 and 78) at any height providing an aligned surface to the back of the leg when the treadles are being depressed. This alignment eliminates the seat edge cutting into the back of the leg shutting off blood circulation.

As an additional feature, if the weaver prefers, the seat can be allowed to move or float with the body thru the full 90 to 78 degree arc so the seat is always aligned flush with the angle of the leg.

With a full 12" by 24" seat area, this Bench will provide maximum comfort over extended weaving periods.

Bench Bags
As an added feature Leclerc has designed two pouches made of durable denim fabric (same as the Voyageur bag) to hold all the misc. tools a weaver needs. The bags attach to each side of the seat and are for the Rocking Bench only.
