This innovative dobby loom is the flagship of the Louët family, and comes as a surprise to the complex weaver...Sorry, only the weaving is complex!
The Megado is simple, easy to operate, and robust enough to handle all your projects. The Megado is available in 70cm (27 5/8”), 110cm (43 1/3”) and 130cm (51 1/4”) weaving widths.
It can be purchased with either 16 shafts or 32 shafts. To create a shed, we invented a new system. The selected shafts and the back beam move in conjunction to create a countermarch shed. The lifting mechanism is incredibly light to operate, even when lifting most of the shafts.
The Megado is made of Ash hardwood and is finished with a double coat of semi gloss lacquer. Included with the loom are: a large shelf, built-in raddle, a 10 dent stainless steel reed, 900 (70cm)/1400 (110cm)/1600 (130cm) Texsolve heddles, lease and tie-up sticks and 16 warp sticks. Also, the most complex castle section comes pre-assembled with the remaining pieces in separate boxes.
The Megado can be purchased with either the mechanical dobby head or an electronic dobby. Several software packages that work with the Megado interface include: Fiberworks PCW, Patternland, PixieLoom, Weavemaker, Proweave and Weave It. The Megado interface supports both PC and MacIntosh operating platforms.
