Item details

Temples make weaving easier for all types of weaving. Glimakra temples are designed in wood for two reasons. First, the wooden temples will not scratch your loom. On Glimakra temples they are “inset” enough so that the teeth are not protruding to catch and scratch the loom and are less likely to prick your fingers. This is especially important for looms which have a shuttle race. And, importantly, the teeth of the Glimakra temples are thin and extremely sharp.

How to adjust a temple:
To use a temple, you must place it in the weaving as soon as there is enough weft woven to hold it. Do not wait until you have narrowing of the width of the weaving. To set the length of the temple, place it up side down on the warp beside the reed. Extend the temple to the width of the warp, letting the wooden edges extend beyond the warp about 1/8″ and the teeth just inside the selvage threads. Place the locking pin into the holes. Place the temple right side up on the weaving. Put the teeth on one side into the very edge of the selvage. Then set the teeth on the other end of the temple, into the other selvage. Push the center of the temple down and slide the metal plate toward the center to hold the temple flat. Do not force it. If it is difficult to push it down, remove the temple, pull out the pin and select the next hole to make it shorter.

Average review
The product, made by Glimakra, is superior. Shipping was described as 3-5 days. I ordered on January 23 and it was delivered on February 3. Delivery far exceeded that time. My decision to order this widely available product was based on shipping time and supporting a small business.
