THREADING HOOKS

 


 

NEW!!

Imported from Germany, these threading hooks are designed for looms with up to 8 shafts. The thread hook is cut and polished, not just stamped. Your threads will NOT fall out of this hook while you are pulling them through the heddles.

This is the same hook that I have used for 30+ years - wouldn't have any other.

 

$10.00 each

 

REED HOOKS


 

NEW!!!

 

Reed Hooks imported from Germany. I "accidentally" started out with this style of hook, ordered from a supplier when I began weaving in Germany 30 years ago. Knife blade design makes them easy to hold. Slot is cut and polished - doesn't let your threads slip out.

Excellent when denting more than one thread at a time.

 

$10.00 each

 

AUTODENTERS

The autodenter is a specialized reed hook that when used correctly in the correct size hops to the next reed dent automatically - preventing those annoying skips that require resleying.

Our autodenters come in 6 sizes. Handmade by a small German firm, they are precision tools that will improve your weaving.

Sizing as follows:

"The auto denters are made for specific reeds, and they work only in the
designed reed setting range. They are numbered from 1 to 6 (0 = the finest).
