Megado Mechanical Dobby
The Louet Megado, is Louet's flagship loom. The Megado is a multi-shaft dobby loom designed to make weaving a joy. It's available in 5 weaving widths ranging from 40cm to 130cm with 16 shaft and 32 shaft options available.
The Louet Megado is an engineered loom made from lacquered ash hardwood. The Megado features a countermarch shed, and the innovative moving breast beam. This moving breast beam provides a unique tension control system allowing the warp to be set and checked with each advance. This system creates a large shed with the highest tensioned warps. The Louet Megado is light to treadle and offers an optional adjustable tilting weaving bench to maximise comfort.
An innovative construction ensures the action of the well-balanced pedal to be very light in operation. This main pedal and also the optional weaving bench are adjustable in height to accommodate the weaver’s physical requirements.
An investment in a Louet Megado dobby loom will ensure many years of comfortable and productive weaving.
The Louet Megado is delivered with a preassembled the castle and the loom includes a large shelf, built-in raddle, a stainless steel reed 40-10 (10 dpi), premounted heddles (390 mm), lease and tie-up sticks and sixteen warp sticks.
How the mechanical dobby bars work
Louets mechanical dobby is a program bar with pegs system. The numbered holes in the program bars correspond with shafts of the loom. If you want a shaft to be liftes, you place a peg in the corresponding hole of the program bar. The number of program bars forming the chain, can be adapted to the weave pattern. However, if the number of program bars becomes very large, you may want to consider an electronic dobby.
