Canvas Aprons

These Aprons are attached to the warp (back) and cloth (front) beams of floor looms. The warp threads are attached to these using a pair of metal Warp Rods and the aprons have been designed to be long enough to unwind around the loom breast beams to prevent the waste of warp by letting the weaver start and end weaving as close to the warp ends as possible.

Aprons are very, very important for the heavier and wider floor looms as they allow the weaver to apply a much larger tension on the warp by distributing the force along the apron width. The apron is long enough to stretch all the way to the castle, but unlike using a system with individual cords, it will wind on to the beam evenly keeping the tension balanced across the loom width and will allow for much higher tensions without breaking or stretching. The use of an apron also prevents the need to drill holes in the warp/cloth beam weakening them. Leclerc recommends aprons be used in all their heavy floor looms with 3 1/2 inch beams.

Made of heavy canvas, these aprons are hemmed all around to prevent fraying and have a sleeve with slits at one side designed to fit a warp rod. The second warp rod is normally lashed to the first using Nylon Cord. Enough tacks to fasten the apron to the warp beam are provided for installation. Normally 2 aprons are required, one for each beam, except when a Sectional Warp Beam is used. In this case, only one apron is used on the cloth beam.

Leclerc weaving products are described in terms of the weaving width of the loom they are designed for so the actual physical width may be different.

Note that many smaller Leclerc looms may use Beam Sticks instead of aprons. Also note that the 32 inch apron is designed for the Initiation table loom and is to short for a conventional floor loom which has a longer distance between warp and breast beam.

Loom Crank Handles

Are you winding the warp on your loom with a wrench? If you lost the crank handle from your Leclerc Loom, we have the replacement handle from Leclerc. Made of steel with comfortable wooden handles that turn (except for 88800-0150) these Leclerc crank handles make winding your warp a breeze!

Both the Medium (C) and Large (D) Crank Handles now include a small bolt to allow the handle to be clamped to the loom.

A special version of Small Crank Handle (B) with a slightly longer shaft is used on the 24" wide Voyaguer and Diana looms. Please indicate this in the order.

A smaller removable crank handle is available to fit a number of looms like the Jano, Hooked Rug Loom and early non-folding Dorothy "Green" table looms.


Note: Many early models of the Artisat loom came with a large version of the handle shown as "A" in the picture above. Unlike the Medium Crank Handle (shown as "C"), this handle sticks out and cannot be easily removed when storing or transporting the loom. These older looms can be converted to use the new crank handle by installing a bolt which we can provide along with the Medium crank handle.

Some early Dorothy and Meco table looms came with the small all-metal crank handle (shown as "A"). These can be upgraded to the more comfortable crank handle shown as "B" in the diagram above.

Jano/Rug Loom Crank Handle

The Jano table looms had a square end to the warp and cloth beam. It's size got bigger as it went in but it is roughly 7/16 of an inch across. This type of end was also used in other products like the Hooked Rug Loom and the early non-folding Dorothy "Green" table looms.

This removable crank handle fits on the square end of both the Jano Warp and Cloth beam so one crank handle can be used for both. It has a wooden handle to make it easy for the weaver to wind the warp. If you are unsure whether this crank handle will fit your loom, please include the exact measurements (height and width) of the end of the square beam end.

Table Loom Lever Handles

These coloured plastic handles fit over the steel levers on Leclerc table looms to make it easier for the weaver to press down the levers. They are colour coded red, yellow, blue and white to make it easy for the weaver to quickly select the correct shaft.

Note that these handles can only be used with looms that originally had plastic tips. Some of the earlier Leclerc Table looms used metal levers with shaped tips instead of the plastic handles. Unfortunately these are too wide to attach these plastic tips to. An example of these levers are shown here.

Treadle Hooks

These metal hooks are used to attach the wooden treadles of Leclerc floor looms to the treadle cords which are connected to the lams. They slide through the metal eyelet screws at the top of the treadle and different lengths are available to match the treadle length (normally determined by the number of shafts). One is required for each treadle.

Early Leclerc looms did not use the Treadle Cord/Hook system but required that the weaver tie a string between the lamm and treadle. Most Weavers convert to the much improved system by simply rotating the screw eyes on the treadle to allow the Treadle Hook to go through.

There are two styles of Treadle Hooks. The Regular ones are used on most of Leclerc's Front-Hinged Treadle Looms and is designed to stay in place by "grabbing" the first Screw Eye on the treadle when they are pushed in place. The Newer Locking type are used mainly for Leclerc Back-Hinge Treadle looms and require a nylon locking pin that fits through the round end into a hole in the treadle to prevent it coming loose.

Note that some earlier Back-Hinge Treadle looms used the Regular Treadle Hook which can be confirmed by an absence of a hole in the treadle rocker.

Floor Loom Warp/Cloth Beam Ends

These metal pieces are attached to the ends of the Cloth and Warp Beam on most Leclerc Floor Looms including the Fanny, Mira, Nilus, Nilus II, Colonial and others.They provide the "axle" that goes into the loom frame at each end and which the beams rotate on. There are three separate end pieces. The Brake Drum End (A) is made of metal and is attached to the right side of the warp beam (at the back). It has a smooth round surface that the brake circle wraps around. The Ratchet Wheel End (B) is made of metal and attaches to the right side of the cloth beam (at the front). The standard Leclerc floor loom wooden beam is 4 3/4 inches in diameter. The pawls mounted to the Take-Up Handle and the loom frame hold the cloth beam from rotating using the notches in this wheel. The Plain End is used on the left side of both the Cloth and Warp Beams and simply provides the axle for the beam.

Each of the beam ends also includes the screws necessary to attach them. Parts may require the special extra large square end screwdriver to remove the old and/or install the new parts. These were included with the loom. Please ensure you have these tools before ordering to avoid installation problems.

Beam Latches and Bushings

On many Leclerc floor looms made after the mid 1950's, the Cloth Beam and the Warp Beam (a number of years later) were designed to be removable by mounting them in slots in the frame and holding them in place using a metal latch. This allows the beams to be removed to give the weaver better access while they warp the loom. The weaver simply loosens the wing nut on the latch and folds it out of the way freeing up the beam so it can be removed.

Recently, Leclerc further enhanced the loom design by adding metal bushings to the Beam Ends on new floor looms. These fit over the end and in addition to reducing friction to allow the warp and cloth beams to turn more easily, they prevented the beam end from damaging the side of the loom frame by preventing side to side movement. The Bushing is positioned to provide a clamped in place

The current Beam Latches and the Bushings may not fit all older looms so it is important to check the measurements before ordering. The center to center holes on the current beam latch design is approximately 2 1/16 inches.

The Bushings are designed to fit on the end of the current Beam Ends which have a 7/8 inch ouside diameter. The outside diameter of the bushing is 1 inch so the slot in the wooden loom frame should be measured to ensure they will fit. The beam end may also have to be cleaned off to allow the bushing to fit if there is rust on it.

Note that these items are sold individually. Normally 4 of each are used on a loom unless the loom is equiped with a Second Warp Beam.

Artisat Warp/Cloth Beam Ends

These metal pieces are attached to the ends of the Cloth and Warp Beam on the Leclerc Artisat floor loom. The Brake Drum End (A) is made of metal and is attached to the right side of the warp beam (at the back) and is about 4 1/4 inches in diameter. It has a smooth round surface that the large brake circle wraps around. The Ratchet Wheel End (A) attaches to the right side of the cloth beam (at the front) and is about 3 1/4 inches in diameter. The pawls mounted to the Take-Up Handle and the loom frame hold the cloth beam from rotating using the notches in this wheel.

Screws for attaching these beam ends are included and the Brake Drum also includes the bolt that threads into it through the frame that the Crank Handle attaches to. This bolt can also be ordered separately.

Note: Parts may require the special square end screwdriver to remove the old and/or install the new part. Please ensure you have these tools before ordering to avoid installation problems.

Table Loom Warp/Cloth Beam Ends

These metal pieces are attached to the right ends of the Cloth and Warp Beam on Leclerc Table Looms such as the Dorothy, Meco, Voyageur, Penelope and Bergere as well as floor looms like the Compact and Minerva. There are two separate ends. The Brake Drum End (A) is made of metal and is attached to the right side of the warp beam (at the back) of looms that utilize a friction brake. It . It has a smooth round surface that the brake circle wraps around and is about 2 3/4 inches in diameter. The Ratchet Wheel End (B) is made of metal and attaches to the right side of the cloth beam (at the front) as well as the warp beam (at the back) for looms that do not utilize a friction brake. It is about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and the pawls mounted to the loom frame hold the cloth/warp beam from rotating using the notches in this wheel.

The Brake Drum and Ratchet Wheels for the Table looms are threaded in the center to fit either of the two small Crank Handles. Note that the beam ends for the Compact and Minerva look similar but have a slightly different center. The brake drum has a large hole threaded for a bolt which goes through the frame so the Loom Crank Handle can attach to it. The ratchet wheel has a smooth hole that a metal axle fits through.

Floor Loom Brake Parts

There are two basic Warp Beam brake systems used on a majority of Leclerc floor looms over the years. The current design is shown below to the right and the older design is shown below left. Parts for these as well as other versions are available. If the brake system on your Leclerc loom appears to be different, contact us and we will help you determine which parts you need. Note that the Brake Circle for both of these systems is the same and is shown below and replacement Brake Cords used by some brake systems are also available.

Note: Parts may require the special square end screwdriver to remove the old and/or install the new part. Please ensure you have these tools before ordering to avoid installation problems.

Note that we can also provide conversion kits for very old Leclerc floor looms that use the ratchet and tension band system at a discounted price. Ordering information is shown below.

Floor Loom Brake Conversion Kit

Early Leclerc Fanny, Mira and Nilus floor looms from more than 60 years ago were designed with a very different braking system than what is found on current models. A ratchet/pawl mechanism on the right side of the warp beam worked with an independent slip band tension control on the left side.

These old brakes were very hard to release when the warp was under a lot of tension and often resulted in frustration plus broken ratchet wheel teeth! Repair parts for these brakes are no longer available. An explanation of why the current Friction Brake system is a vast improvement over the old style brake is described here.

ITEM # DESCRIPTION PRICE
88800-0195 Brake Conversion Kit $299.95 CDN
$284.95 US

To help convert an older loom to the current design, we have put together a kit with all the pieces required (pictured above left). The kit includes new beam ends, the brake system, the wooden lever, all screws and bolts and even the brake locking catch. This kit discounts the price of the parts by 30% over what the parts purchased alone would be. (ie. $405 CDN or $365 US). A full set of diagrams showing where holes are to be drilled in the frame to install the parts is also included.


The pictures to the left show the old braking system while the new brake after conversion is shown to the right. Click on any of the pictures to see a larger version.

Note: Parts require the special square end screwdrivers to remove the old and/or install the new parts. Please ensure you have these tools before ordering to avoid installation problems. Note that the beam ends require the "extra large" screwdriver.




Table Loom Brake Conversion Kit

Early Dorothy, Meco and Medico table looms had ratchet brakes like the one pictured left at the top instead of the friction brakes used on the current Dorothy and 24 inch Voyageur. The friction brake design allows the weaver to easily engage and release the warp beam brake using a lever on the right side of the frame without reaching all the way to the back of the loom.

This kit contains all the parts neccessary to convert the earlier ratchet brake to the newer design. It includes the brake drum, a new wire brake coil, a replacement support post with brake lever and brake spring and a number of other parts along with a full set of instructions view here). The brake system is the same as that shown in the middle picture to the left except the spring is now attached to the brake lever as show bottom left. (Click pictures to enlarge)

The replacement support post is a different length for 15 3/4" and 22"/24" table looms so separate part numbers are shown.

Because some looms are very old, we normally recommend that the purchaser checks to make sure the crank handle can be removed (unscrew counter-clockwise) from the ratchet wheel before ordering the kit. If the two are fused together, the crank handle breaks or if it has has damaged threads it may be necessary to add a replacement crank handle to the order.

Note: Parts may require the special square end screwdriver to remove the old and/or install the new part. Please ensure you have these tools before ordering to avoid installation problems.

Compact Loom Brake Conversion Kit

The Compact loom tension brake has been improved to make it easier to use and to provide better braking power. There have been a number of brake versions over the years which are shown in the picture to the left along with the current design. The upgrade kit includes all the parts shown (D, E and F) to upgrade any version.

Individual parts are also available. Some of the early "A" versions used a shorter spring and recent versions used a solid brake circle instead of the current brake cable design. The Strengthening Piece includes and fits a bolt to go right through the frame instead of the screw used in earlier designs. Note that, as the cable is physically attached to the brake lever, the two come together as a single item and can't be ordered individually. (Click pictures to enlarge).

To see what is required to install the new brake system the Installation Instructions are available for downloading. The complete upgrade process requires the use of a drill and 2 sizes of drill bits. The bits needed are a 11/64 inch (or 3/16 inch) and a 7/64 inch (or 1/8 inch). Simpler upgrades like replacing the brake lever/wire brake circle can be performed with just a wrench and a screwdriver.

Note: Parts may require the special square end screwdriver to remove the old and/or install the new part. Please ensure you have these tools before ordering to avoid installation problems.

Brake Circle

These flat metal brake circles wrap around the brake drum on Leclerc looms to provide tension on the warp. The friction effect of the brake is released by pushing down on the brake lever. There are two sizes of brake circle. The smaller fits table looms like the Dorothy, Medico and Meco as well as the Minerva and older Compact looms while the larger fits floor looms like the Fanny, Mira, Nilus, Nilus II, Artisat and Colonial.

Note: Parts may require the special square end screwdriver to remove the old and/or install the new part. Please ensure you have these tools before ordering to avoid installation problems.

88800-0050 Large Brake Circle $30.00 CDN
$27.00 US
88800-0051 Small Brake Circle $27.00 CDN
$26.00 US



Note: Older Leclerc table looms (Dorothy, Meco, Medico, Minerva) used a wire brake circle. This have been replaced with the solid small brake circle shown which is constructed using a flat metal surface like the large brake circle. This will result in improved performance due to the large contact area of this new brake circle.



Table Loom Brake Spring

This spring exerts tension on the brake circle of the Meco, Medico and/or Dorothy looms when the brake lever is engaged. One end attaches to the brake circle and the other attaches to the nylon brake cord (or wire on older looms).

The new design on table looms is to use a section of large Texsolv Loop Cord to connect the spring to the brake lever. This allows easy adjustment of the cord length to get the brake tension correct. A cord for 4 shaft looms is provided but if the loom has a longer frame for 8, 12 or 16 shafts a longer cord may be required.

Minerva Loom Brake Spring

This spring exerts tension on the brake circle of the Minerva loom when the brake lever is not engaged. One end of the spring attaches to the brake lever and the other attaches to the loom frame.

Note: This brake spring is specifically designed for the Minerva loom and will not work on any other model of Leclerc floor loom. The spring may be longer than the spring on some early Minerva looms requiring a new lower mounting hole in the frame to be drilled. The Minerva is pictured here. For most Leclerc Floor looms the brake spring is shown in the Floor Loom Brake Parts section.

88800-0191 Minerva Brake Spring $9.25 CDN
$8.50 US





Brake Locking Catch (and Artisat Take-up Motion Handle Support)

This metal locking catch is used on Leclerc floor looms to hold the wooden brake handle down. On most looms this catch holds the brake handle in a position that releases the brake allowing the warp beam to turn as the cloth is being advanced. This newer steel catch is much more durable than the older plastic version which tends to break after a certain amount of use. The wood screw used to attach the catch to the loom frame is included.

This part is also used to support the Take-Up Motion Handle for the Artisat loom and is mounted under the upper frame beam near the cloth beam ratchet wheel. It supports the handle when in use and then folds out of the way allowing the handle to be positioned down to fold up the loom

Note: Parts may require the special square end screwdriver to remove the old part. Please ensure you have these tools before ordering to avoid installation problems.

Colonial Lam Guides

The Lam Guides on the original Colonial loom were fairly simple with a wooden block at the top attached to the frame that was connected to a similar block on the bottom using a set of wooden dowels as shown in the top picture to the left. While the design worked, it was very fragile and could become damaged very easily when the loom was moved.

When Leclerc made the Colonial I they improved the Lam Guide design by putting a vertical board on each side to construct a stronger frame. This is shown in the lower picture to the left.

When Leclerc developed the current Colonial v2 loom they once again improved the Lam Guide by replacing the thin wooden dowels with steel rods. These newer Lam Guides are available for older Colonial (8 shaft) and Colonial I (12 shaft) looms. The part numbers below include a set of 2 x Lam Guides (ie. left and right) as shown in the picture of the Colonial ones below.

Dorothy/Compact/Artisat Warp Beam Advance Control Kit

This kit adds the Warp Beam Advance Control found on the newer looms to older Dorothy, Compact and Artisat looms. It includes the nylon controller screw plus a threaded insert. A 15/32 inch drill bit and drill are required to drill a hole in the vertical support post on the loom to install the insert.

This Warp Advance Control system eliminates excessive warp yarn advance when releasing the brake system during cloth advance. This friction system is adjustable and has to be released when winding the warp on. The weaver just screws the wing nut with nylon bolt to the left back post. Screw the wingnut in to increase the friction or unscrew it to decrease/release it.

Note that an alternative design is available for the larger Leclerc Floor looms like the Nilus, Nilus II, Colonial, Fanny II, Mira II and Weavebird.

Table Loom Nylon Spacers

These spacers are used in Leclerc table looms like the Dorothy to keep the levers properly positioned at the top of the castle as well as to provide spacing between the support brackets and the beater swords where they attach to the frame at the bottom of the loom. They are sold in pairs.

Take-Up Motion Handle and Pawls

The take up motion handle shown to the left is used on almost all the Leclerc floor looms except for the Compact, Artisat and Minerva which use a different type that is not shown. The Take-up handle (A) comes complete as shown with the small Pawl (B) which is also used as the ratchet mechanism on the Dorothy and Voyageur table looms.

The Artisat Take-up Motion handle is supported by a special support bracket Both the Artisat and Compact have non-replaceable pawls so if the pawl breaks the whole handle needs to be replaced.

The two long pawls ("C" and "D") are approximately 6 and 4 3/4 inches long. On some early looms Leclerc used shorter pawls (4 and 3 inches) so to use the current pawls it may be necessary to move and/or replace the Double Pawl mounting bracket to position the new pawls correctly.

Note: Parts may require the special square end screwdriver to remove the old and/or install the new part. Please ensure you have these tools before ordering to avoid installation problems.

Table Loom Beater Parts

These parts can be used to rebuild the beater mechanism on the current 15 3/4" and 24" Dorothy, Voyageur and Diana looms. Contact us for pricing for similar parts for earlier versions (slightly different widths) of the Dorothy as well as for the discontinued Meco or Medico table looms.

Note: The sleys/handtrees below for the 15 3/4" looms are actually 18 3/16 inches long and for the 24" looms they are 26 1/6" long at the longest part.

The current metal swords have an overall length of 12 inches and are 1/8 inch thick. Some looms had thicker swords with wider gaps on the battens where they clamp in place (ie. 3/16 inches). If the gaps are too big, the current swords may not work with the older battens and both the Batten Sley and Batten Handtree may have to be replaced as well as the swords.

Note: Parts may require the special square end screwdriver to remove the old and/or install the new part. Please ensure you have these tools before ordering to avoid installation problems.

Table Loom Warp/Cloth Beams

These wooden beams are designed for the Leclerc Dorothy, Meco, Nilec, Medico, Minerva, Voyageur, Penelope, Bergere and Diana table looms. They fit as either the cloth or warp beam and have the metal axle at one end and either a ratchet wheel or brake drum at the other depending upon which loom they are designed for. Note that some earlier warp beams were hexagonal in shape to attach the sectional warp rakes but only round beams are currently available as the Sectional Beam warp beam is now used because of space restrictions.

Note: The sleys/handtrees below for the 15 3/4" looms are actually 18 3/16 inches long and for the 24" looms they are 26 1/6" long at the longest part.

The current metal swords have an overall length of 12 inches and are 1/8 inch thick. Some looms had thicker swords with wider gaps on the battens where they clamp in place (ie. 3/16 inches).

Treadle and Lam Screw Eyes

The large Screw Eyes (A) are attached to the top of the treadles to hold the Treadle Hooks. The number on each treadle varies by model, number of shafts and age of loom. (Click on the picture to the left to enlarge)

The small Screw Eyes (B) are installed in the bottom of the Lams and provide a place to attach the Treadle Cords. Each Lam should have one Screw Eye for each treadle although on some looms that are expandable there are enough for the total number of treadles that can be used on that loom.

"Square End" Screwdrivers

For many years Leclerc Looms were constructed using a special type of woodworking screws with square holes in the head. These "Square Head" screws, are not commonly found outside of Canada, and a special screwdriver was provided with the loom by Leclerc for assembly.

The standard set of 2 screwdrivers includes 2 sizes (large and small tip) to fit most screws on the wide range of Leclerc table and floor looms.

The "extra large" size is only required for a few screws like the ones holding on the Floor Loom Beam Ends and attaching the dowels on the Warping Mills (Note that the handle design may not be exactly as shown).
