Leclerc LogoNilus Weaving Loom


One of the most popular Jack looms on the market, Leclerc has been making the Nilus model for over 60 years and thousands are in use world wide. The "Low Castle" design positions the breast beam and suggested bench at the the same height as Leclerc's popular Fanny and Mira looms. The Nilus is available in 27", 36", 45" or 60" weaving widths and with 4 shafts or 8. The Nilus family offers a number of options to add features, upgrade the number of shafts and to switch the treadle design. Each model has 2 more treadles than the number of shafts so there are 6 treadles on the 4 shaft versions and 10 treadles on the 8 shaft models. (Click to enlarge the pictures below)

Models:

There are 2 primary models of the Nilus with different number of shafts and treadle design:

4 Shaft Jack Version
The Nilus 4 shaft Jack loom has 6 front mounted treadles. It can be upgraded to an 8 shaft with 10 Back-Hinge Treadles at a later date. The loom uses a conventional system of Jacks and Lamms and produces a very large shed.

The front beam of the Nilus has a height of 31 1/4 inches. Taller weavers who are more comfortable with a higher front beam can order the Nilus II model Jack loom which, except for the height, heddle size and a back stabilizing foot, is almost the identical loom.

A special 4+4 version of the 4 shaft loom is also available that reduces the upgrade cost down the road by using the 8 shaft loom's wider castle.

Nilus 4 Shaft

8 Shaft Jack BHT Version
The Nilus 8 Shaft Jack loom includes the
Back-Hinge Treadle option to make it as easy to treadle as the 4 shaft. The loom uses a conventional system of Jacks and Lamms and produces a very large shed.

The front beam of the Nilus has a height of 31 1/4 inches. Taller weavers who are more comfortable with a higher front beam can order the Nilus II BHT model Jack loom which, except for the height (and heddle size), is almost the identical loom.

Features:

There are a number of superior features built into the Leclerc Nilus looms. Brackets after the title indicate if the features are specific to a certain model or models.

Large Clean Sheds!
All the Nilus loom models have large sheds making it easy to throw a shuttle through regardless of which size is used. They all have shuttle races in the beater mechanism but the design of the looms are optimized to provide a clear large path for the weaver to insert weft thread regardless of whether they are using a boat, stick, rag, end feed or flying shuttle.

The Beater height on all Nilus looms is adjustable to allow the weaver to position the warp in relation to the reed and the shuttle race to maximize the shed size.



Leclerc BHT Jack Shed


Triple Pawl Warp Advance System
To advance the warp and position the fell line where most comfortable to the weaver, a Take-up Motion handle located on the right side of the cloth beam is easily accessable to the weaver. A heavy duty metal pawl on the handle grips the ratchet wheel on the end of the cloth beam to turn it to wind the woven fabric onto the beam. To hold it in position while weaving a set of two metal pawls attached to the loom frame stop the cloth beam from turning in the opposite direction.

The unique Leclerc Triple Pawl system is designed in such a way that when the weaver stops advancing the warp, only one of the frame pawls engages with the ratchet to stop the beam from turning. This means that even though there are 20 teeth on the ratchet wheel, there are actually 40 positions the wheel can stop during a rotation. This design allows the weaver to more finely adjust the tension on the warp.

While it would have been easier and less costly to simply use a 40 tooth ratchet and one less pawl, the reduced height and thinner more shallow teeth would have greatly reduced the wheel's strength and would make it easier for the cloth beam to slip. You can see the Triple Pawl system in action and hear it's distictive metallic clink in this video.

As well as increasing the strength by using metal, the weight of the pawls allows them to use gravity to lock in place. It also means that once a project is finished, the weaver can simple flip the three pawls up out of the way and unroll the fabric off the free-turning cloth beam. It also makes cloth beam removal a cinch!

Warp Advance System Raised Pawls


Leclerc Friction Brake
All Nilus models come with the Leclerc Friction Brake system. The brake uses a flat metal band called a
Brake Circle wrapped around a steel Brake Drum on the end of the Warp Beam. Contact between the two applies a tremendous amount of force to prevent the warp beam from turning. A light touch on the brake treadle by the weaver's right foot, while remaining seated at the loom, releases the tension allowing the warp beam to rotate.

The Leclerc Friction Brake coupled with Leclerc's Triple Pawl Ratchet Warp Advance system enables the weaver to easily apply anything from a small to a very large amount of tension on the warp threads and Leclerc's unique Warp Beam Advance Control system stops the Warp Beam from unravelling the warp threads when the brake is released.

Unlike the Ratchet and Pawl mechanism used on some looms, the Leclerc Friction Brake allows the warp beam to be locked in an almost infinite number of positions rather than those dictated by the number of teeth on the ratchet wheel. The Friction Brake also eliminates the problem of ratchet wheel teeth breaking. When a large amount of tension is applied in a Ratchet/Pawl system, releasing the brake requires the pawl to be raised up along the ratchet wheel tooth, ultimately applying pressure to the weak narrow tip of the tooth which can cause it to snap off. Leclerc converted away from this type of brake back in the 1950's but it is still being used by some loom makers.

The heavy duty Steel Brake Drum and the special metal Brake Circle are much more expensive than the lower cost wooden brake drum and wire loop system or simple ratchet brake design other manufacturers use but produces a stronger, more durable, dependable and functional design which is why there are many Leclerc looms with their original friction brake still working hard after decades and decades of use!

Leclerc Friction Brake

Leclerc Brake Circle


Warp Advance Control System
Located at the back of the loom on the left side, the Warp Advance Control system allows the weaver to add a variable amount of friction to the warp beam using a nylon screw mechanism. This control prevents the warp beam from spinning out of control, unwinding the warp when the brake is released suddenly and is especially useful when weaving a highly tensioned warp like that used for weaving rugs. The Warp Advance Control can be set up so that when the brake is released, the warp beam only rotates when the weaver advances the warp with the Take-up Motion Handle on the front right side making warp advances quick and easy.

Warp Advance Control


Beater/Reed Design
The reed for the Leclerc Nilus loom is installed in the Beater between two horizontal beams called the "Batten Handtree" and the "Batten Sley". These 1 3/4 inch square Maple beams hold the Reed securely in position by sitting below and pressing down from the top. The Upper Batten Handtree is fastened with wingnuts that when loosened allow it to be raised to remove or change the reed. The space for the reed is not blocked on either the right or left side so the weaver to use a reed that is longer than the one made for this loom width by letting the extra length stick out on either side. Because Leclerc offers a wide range of their own Carbon and Stainless Steel Reeds Nilus owners don't have to deal with the frustration of searching to find something to fit their loom.

On Nilus models, the Batten Sley has an additional piece of wood attached to it called the "Shuttle Race". Fastened on an angle, it provides a solid base for the lower warp threads to help support the shuttle on its path through the shed. It is held on using a set of screws and can be removed if the weaver does not want to use it.

The optional Raddle Leclerc makes is designed with the same profile as the reed to allow it to be installed and held in the beater during the threading process. It can also be mounted to the front or back beams of the looms using a set of metal clips that are included.

The vertical position of the warp threads as they travel through the reed is important for optimal loom operation and maximum shed size. Leclerc makes this easy to adjust using a set of Mounting Plates at the bottom of the Beater Swords. By undoing the pair of bolts, the beater can be raised or lowered to position the reed and shuttle race in relation to the warp. Tightening the pair of bolts on each side locks the beater height.

Adjustable Height Beater Sword


Easy Access for Threading
The front and back beams of the loom can be lifed off and set aside to make it easier to access the warp/cloth beams and shafts while threading the loom. During weaving the warp tension applies pressure to prevent them from moving eliminating the need to undo bolts or screws. In addition, the cloth beam can be easily removed by undoing two wing nuts and sliding the locking plates out of the way. The warp beam can also be removed by releasing the brake circle and undoing and opening the locking plates holding it in place.

This accessability allows the weaver to sit right in the loom either from the back or the front depending upon what threading method they use. When finished and the warp is ready, they can then quickly put everything back in place.

Leclerc Tie-up System
The Leclerc Tie-up system is designed to make the process easier. Instead of having the weaver tie knots under the loom and fine tune cord lengths, the connection between the lamms and the treadles is made with fixed length Treadle Cords that are locked in place using quick release steel Treadle Hooks that are threaded through screw eyes in the treadles.

Back-Hinge Treadle Hooks

The standard Treadle Hooks lock by grabbing the first screw eye they go through and the Back-Hinge Treadles have a nylon vertical locking pin to keep them in place.

The standard treadle tie-up is shown to the right and the Back-Hingle Treadle Tie-up system is pictured to the left.

Storage on Top
Nilus looms come with a Wooden Castle Top that provides handy storage for the weaver. When removed, the shafts can be easily lifted out to move or add heddles on a table.

Nilus Castle Top


Shaft Frames
On a loom, the "shaft" holds a group of heddles that in turn lift and/or lower a specific set of warp threads to create the shed that the shuttle feeds the warp threads through. There are two primary ways used by loom manufacturers to construct these "shafts". Leclerc floor looms like the Nilus use a rigid rectangular "shaft frame" and then within it, provide a mechanism to support the heddles called the Heddle Support Rod. A simpler way is to use two wooden sticks called "shaft bars" and thread heddles on to them. While greatly reducing the cost to make the loom, the "shaft bar" approach brings with it some disadvantages.

Because these shaft bars have to remain rigid while fighting the warp tension to raise or lower, they have to be thick. This thickness normally limits their use to Texsolv heddles as the wire and flat metal heddle mounting holes are too small. The wider bars also reduce the effective length of the heddles. In the Leclerc shaft frame, the narrow metal heddle support rods are thin and narrow enough to use Texsolv, Wire, Inserted Eye and/or Flat Metal heddles. The shaft frame provides the rigidity necessary and removable spring hooks are used to bind the heddle support rod to the shaft frame.

On the Nilus, the heddle support rods are attached to the shaft frame on either side using Shaft Frame Spring Clips. While Heddle Support Rods do flex, they are held rigid to the Shaft Frame while weaving using a pair of Heddle Support Bar Spring Hooks in the middle of the shaft frame at the top and bottom. During the threading process, releasing these hooks removes the tension from the heddles making them easy for the weaver to move side to side. The difference in tension on Texsolv heddles with and without the Spring Hooks engaged is demonstrated in this video.

Shaft Frame vs Shaft Bars

Heddle Type Flexibility
Which type of heddles are better? Texsolv or Wire Heddles? Plain Wire or Inserted Eye? While each type of heddle has their advantages and disadvantages, Leclerc has designed the Nilus with the flexibility to let the weaver decide!

Because the Nilus uses shaft frames instead of simpler Heddle Bars, the weaver is not forced to pick one style of heddle. With Leclerc looms they are free to pick the type they are comfortable with and can even switch later if they change their mind. This means they can choose Texsolv, Wire, Inserted Eye, Flat Steel and metal Repair Heddles and even mix all types on a single shaft if they want. They all fit!

Heddles


Folding Back Beam
The back beam on the Nilus folds out while weaving to increase the distance the warp threads travel. On the front hinge treadle models, these folding beam and leg fold up to greatly decrease the depth of the loom so they take up less space and make them easier to move and/or go through doorways. This can be done while the loom is warped in the middle of a project. (Note that the Nilus does not have the folding back leg shown in the picture. This is a feature of the Nilus II loom model.)

The Back-Hinge Treadle versions of the Nilus can also be folded to a lesser degree but a larger number of treadle cords have to be disconnected and it takes a little more effort.

Nilus Jack Folding


Back-Hinge Treadles (8 shaft only)
As the number of shafts on a loom increases, the amount of force required by the weaver to create the same sized shed in the warp increases. This is because each new shaft must lift and/or lower the warp threads a little more than the previous shaft so that it's warp threads are positioned parallel to the ones attached to the other shafts (ie. producing a "clean" shed). This means that as the number of shafts increase, there is also an increase in the force required by the weaver to depress the treadles with their feet.

The most basic solution to applying more force is the lever and Leclerc has utilized that concept in the Back-Hinge Treadle version of their looms. Instead of the weaver pushing down on a short treadle mounted to the front of the loom, a longer set of treadles that pivot at the back of the loom go under the lamms and extend to the front of the loom, appearing like the foot pedals on an organ. When the weaver presses down on the extended treadles, they get a similar leverage action to help pull down the lamms. This is similar (and upside down) to the leverage provided by the extended handles that make it easy for a person to lift a heavy object in a wheelbarrow.

For those who don't have a lot of lower body strength but want to weave with more than 4 shafts, the Leclerc "back-hinged" design increases the weavers leg leverage producing a wide, clean shed with much less effort than conventional front mounted treadles. The Back-Hinge Treadles are available on the 8 shaft versions of the Nilus and upgrades for older Nilus looms without the feature are available. See how Back-Hinge Treadles operate in the video here.

Back-Hinge Treadle Guide

Unlike other manufacturer's looms, Leclerc's Back-Hinge Treadle design incorporates a unique "Treadle Guide" which ensures that the treadles can only move up and down. The guide is a set of inverted "U" shaped rods rising from the bottom of the loom frame which prevent horizontal movement. This eliminates the problem of treadles swinging side to side causing the weaver to have to watch where their feet go to avoid missing the treadle or having their foot slip off. With the Leclerc system the weaver can concentrate on the pattern and throwing the shuttle!

A more detailed explanation can be found here: Back-Hinge Treadle Operation

Treadle Springs (8 shaft Jack only)
In some cases on a Jack loom where a large number of treadles are attached to a shaft, the weight can apply a force that may cause the shaft to rise when not required. This is commonly referred to as a Floating Shaft and a more detailed description of the problem can be found here.

To deal with Floating Shafts, the 8 shaft versions of the Nilus II Jack loom have a set of springs on the back of the castle that can be connected to one or more treadles to counteract the downward force by applying a similar upward force. When the weaver depresses a treadle with an attached spring, the spring stretches to allow the treadle to go down. These springs are metal and much more durable then the elastics that some loom makers use for the same function.

Nilus Treadle Springs


Quality Materials
Located in an area known for the production of Maple Syrup, Leclerc has access to high quality Maple Hardwood which is perfect for building sturdy but beautiful loom frames. The Nilus loom frame is made using high quality 1 1/2 by 2 1/2 inch solid Maple beams with mortise and tenon joints held together with heavy duty bolts. The bolt and square nut design enables the loom to be taken apart for moving, storage or shipment if required but allows the weaver to tighten the bolts using a single standard wrench without have to crawl under the loom or to get a second person to help.

Custom metal parts are used in places like beam ends, brake and warp tensioning mechanisms where large forces are applied. Durable non-sliding polyvinyl footpads are attached to the base of all the loom feet to reduce movement while protecting the floor. Nylon parts are only used where soft bumpers or glides are required.

A pair of heavy duty canvas aprons are provided for the warp and cloth beams to reduce loom waste by letting the weaver use as much of the warp as possible. 4 heavy duty steel rods and the cords to attach them to the aprons are included.

Leclerc also includes a Boat Shuttle, Bobbins, a Reed/Heddle Hook, Heddles and a Steel Reed with the loom as well as assembly instructions and their basics guide to weaving called Warp and Weave.

More Value for the Money
As a North American loom manufacturer, Leclerc has the benefit of not having to add a second level of distribution between themselves and their retail stores. Most of the other loom manufacturers from outside the US and Canada, as well as having to add the price of International shipping and import costs to their looms, must also include the cost of a North American importer who buys from them, imports the looms and then sells them to the dealer adding another level of markup. This results in higher prices for the loom or less money being put into the materials used to make them affecting quality.

To get their prices down, some loom manufacturers remove items that then have to be purchased by the weaver separately. Some looms actually come with half the number of heddles that are required, don't include a boat shuttle (or replace it with a low cost stick shuttle) or don't include such basics as a reed/heddle hook.

Local manufacturing also means that parts, tools and accessories for Leclerc are fast and easy to get because dealers are not waiting for the North American distributor to have enough to order to justify the "next container" shipment.

Loom Options:

The basic Nilus loom can be customized to fit the weavers application with a number of options. These can be added at the time the loom is purchased or at some point after as the owner's needs change or they expand into other types of weaving:

Double Warp Beam
The Double Warp Beam option is a designed to assist the weaver in situations where the take-up is greater on some warp threads than on others. This ofen occurs when mixing different types or thicknesses of yarn in the warp. The differing elasticity in a long warp of this fashion makes it difficult for the weaver to get an even tension on the warp threads. With two warp beams, the different yarn can be wound on the second beam and the weaver can control the tension independently.

The extra warp beam is easy to install with brackets on the back posts of the loom, and comes with it's own friction brake which can be operated by the weaver sitting at the loom. On floor looms, this feature eliminates the need for the weaver to get up and walk around to the back of the loom to release the tension to advance the warp.

The warp threads travelling to the second beam travel over a special secondary thread beam which mounts to the main thread beam and seperates the two warp threads. This beam and the mounting brackets for it are also included. The second warp beam is removable if not in use.

Double Warp Beam


Weighted Beater

Warp Faced Weaves like Bound and Rep Weave have always presented a challenge to handweavers, especially those using wider floor looms. Rugweavers find the hard beating required to pack the weft is tiring and can cause physical strain on the weaver's wrist and arms reducing the time they can spend at the loom.

The Weighted Beater is designed for use with all versions of the Nilus looms Identical in appearance to the standard beater Batten Handtree and Batten Sley included with the Nilus, the Weighted Beater option adds from 4 to 13 pounds (1.8 to 5.9 kgs) to the weight of the beater assembly making it easier for the weaver to beat the weft harder.

This Weighted Beater Bar option is used to replace one or both of the horizontal Maple hardwood bars (battens) that hold the reed with similar wood battens containing hidden internal weights. The weights are designed in such a way as to not detract from the looms appearance, damage the loom or get in the way of the weaver.

Distribution of the extra weight along the length of the beater, ensures uniform packing of the weft and ensures the battens will not break under the uneven stress found when external weights are simply attached to either end of the beater. Because both Batten Handtree and Batten Sley versions are available, the amount of weight can be varied by using just one or both of these. The regular and weighted battens can be switched easily by undoing two bolts, even when the loom is warped.

Weighted Beater


Sectional Warping Option
All Nilus looms have a 3 1/2 inch diameter Maple Warp Beam that is pre-drilled so that a set of 4 "rakes" can be added to allow the weaver to warp the loom sectionally. These Sectional Rakes are ordered as an option to the Canvas Apron that is included standard with all Nilus looms and comes in 1 or 2 inch spacing.

Sectional Warping Accessories

On a sectional beam, the warp can be wound up to the height of the metal clips. To allow for very, very long warps, a set of extensions can also be added to increase the beam diameter and as a result enable a much longer warp to be used. The Nilus warp beam has been positioned with enough space above and below to allow this expansion to occur.

In addition to the sectional beam a full Sectional Warping package can be provided including a Tension Box, Warp Counter, Spool Rack, Spools and Electric Winders. Leclerc also makes Dividers, Guides and a Tension Box Extension to help with winding.

While a new Nilus owner may not be interested in Sectional Weaving initially, it's nice to know that all the parts and tools are available from Leclerc to transition to this method of warping and that the loom is capable of being used this way. We often hear disappointment from customers who realize that this is not possible on other brands of looms!

Sectional Rakes

Sectional Extensions


Flying Shuttle Option
Nilus looms (36 inches and wider) can be equiped with an optional Flying Shuttle Beater. While this is an indispensable option when weaving fabric with wide widths, weavers who find the process of throwing the shuttle at narrower widths difficult may also want to consider this option. The flying shuttle can also be used to increase a weaver's pick rate.

The Flying Shuttle Beater attaches to the standard beater assembly of the Nilus. It consists of a box to hold the shuttle at either end of the beater with a sliding "hammer". A cord is connected from each box to a wooden handle at the center of the loom that the weaver uses to move the "hammer" mechanism. By pulling on the cord, the weaver catapults the shuttle along the reed through the shed until it comes to rest in the shuttle box at the opposite end. After beating the warp and changing the shed, the process is repeated. The shuttle box at each end have a leather strap to catch the shuttle without damaging it.

This option includes a special Endfeed Flying Shuttle (EFS) with metal pointed tips that is used in the flying shuttle beater. The Flying Shuttle beater option also includes a wooden Beater Handle that attaches to the Batten Handtree (the top of beater) making it easier for the weaver to grasp the beater. The mechanism is attached to the beater Batten Sley in place of the Shuttle Race, extends out about 16 inches on either side of the loom, and can be easily installed when the weaver wishes to weave with it and removed when they want to throw the shuttle by hand.

Bench Options
Leclerc provides a number of bench options. All are made with the same high quality Maple Hardwood used in the looms and are finished with a simple varnish coating to match the loom.

The basic Fixed Height Bench (top right) provides storage for tools on either side as well as a larger storage area under the hinged seat. This bench has been designed with legs that allow it to be stored out of the way underneath the front breast beam and over the treadles when not in use.

An Adjustable Bench (top left) allows the weaver to set the height using removal bolts on each side and pre-drilled holes. Storage can be added to each side using optional canvas bench bags.

The Rocking Bench (bottom pictures) is also height adjustable but has a seat that can tilt slightly for comfort. The tilting action can be disabled using a removable bolt provided with the bench. Storage can be added to each side using optional canvas bench bags.
