Schacht Wolf Double Back Beam
Schacht's Wolf looms can be fitted with a double back beam, with a separate brake drum and brake release pedal.
Use two beams when you want two warps that are separately tensioned, for exmple when weaving a doubleweave fabric where one layer weaves longer than the other.To do this easily, you can beam one layer on one beam and the other on the other beam.
Double back beams also work well for a plain weave ground and a supplementary pattern warp. In this case, the ground threads would be threaded on one beam and the pattern threads on the other beam. The ground warp will have more take-up because it interlaces more often than the pattern warp; over the length of the warp, the pattern threads will become looser and looser, causing tension headaches that can easily be avoided by using a second beam.
