This is the re-designed Spencer Power Treadle with a new and improved switch.
We also have one treadle left with an international power supply for outside of the U.S. and Canada available for $395. This treadle has the OLD switch. Email us if you would like this treadle.
This treadle is the first (that we know of) electric treadle for a portable tapestry loom. You can easily change the shed (for tapestry weaving primarily) by pressing down on a pedal that will electronically change the shed without having to use your hands. Easy, fast and perfect for tapestry weaving!
You can download instructions, troubleshooting information and safety warnings for the power treadle here.
The treadle is designed to be used with wooden clips, not the old plastic ones. If you do not have these clips on your loom, you will want to purchase a set of those in addition to the treadle. You can find those here.
If you plan to use the treadle on more than one loom it is best to buy an extra bushing for each additional loom. The bushing is a plastic piece that fits on the end of the shedding device tube to hold the treadle motor.
If you will be using your treadle with any loom with an extended shed (any loom with Shed Extenders, including the 48" Lily Loom), we recommend purchasing this Treadle + Shed Extender Block.
