Looms and parts of a loom

There are 18 looms consisting of a frame (wood of the fir), a roller of the warp and a finished product, jacquard mechanism, a foot lever (pedal), a tensioning bar, leaves (8 pieces), weights (4.800–11.400 pieces), a cross reed, cards made of cardboard, a shuttle, a coiler for winding, 400–800 needles for punching cards (patterns) and a prism.

Looms are in good condition and they were made manually at the end of the 19th century in Check Republic. They were made using a technique of riveting, gluing and pin riveting. They are 2,5 m long, 2,5 m wide and in comparison with the jacquard mechanism from 2,8 to 3,2 m high.


Winding — spooling machine

There are two spooling machines consisting of the following parts: a supporting wooden frame, a box with a gearing mechanism, 8 gear wheel drivers and 8 driven gears, working spindles, a swinging system 7+7 (the difference between the number of gears and spindles is a result of a failure in any of them), a flywheel, a weight for feeds returning and an electric motor (originally there was a foot drive).

Spooling machine

Winding machines are well preserved and made manually at the end of the 19th century in Check Republic. They are made using a technique of forging, filing, drilling and casting. They are 1,45 m long, 0,75 m wide and 1,35 m high without the electric motor.
