LeClerc Nilus 11 Counterbalance
LeClerc Nilus 11 Counterbalance
The Nilus II 4s is available in two versions- Jack or counterbalance. The 8s loom is available in 3 versions - Jack, Jack with Back Hinge Treadles and Countermarche. The Nilus II loom has been designed with a stabilizer foot, for better stability. The shed is always good with any tie-up combination. 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 12½" (31.7 cm) long. It is a loom with independent shafts, guided by pegs at each side, preventing friction of the frames which are pushed upwards by an underneath mechanism. All Nilus II looms have non-sliding polyvinyl foot pads under the uprights to keep it solid on the floor. It is equipped with a friction brake giving perfect tension every time. The front cloth beam and back thread beam are removable for easy threading, and the warp beam is also removeable 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 regular 4 shaft jack-type into an 8 shaft jack-type loom. A new back hinge treadle kit is also available. Any Nilus II 8 shaft can be upgraded to a back hinge treadle loom.

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, a wide, clean shed is obtained 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 on the Nilus and Artisat loom.

NILUS II COUNTERMARCH
Our countermarche system has only one set of lams, two sets of pulleys above the shafts and one set of pulleys below. In a countermarche loom, every shaft is actively involved in each shed: each shaft is either lifted or pulled down by each pedal. Uneven sheds like 3 shafts against 1 are 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.
