Nilus Leclerc Jano Beater Pics, Plans, Drawings

The beater on the Jano is not affixed to the loom’s frame itself as later models are.  Instead, the beater is simply set on a piece of round metal stock that protrudes inwardly from the lower cross beams.

There are likely numerous Jano looms out there that are minus a beater/reed.  Here is an exquisite set of drawings done at my request by Bob Bellaires, whose wife, Jenny, owns a Jano and operates Daisy Hill Weaving Studio.  He made a very well engineered stand with treadles for her Jano loom which can be viewed, here.  On behalf of the weaving community, many thanks!
