It comes with a stool, several reeds 10, 12, and 14. There are 1000 texsolv heddles, and a new texsolv cord tie up to treadles. It is a sturdy workhorse loom for weaving rugs.

Louet Megado 110 (44″)
16 shaft. Mechanical dobby

The mechanical dobby can easily be interfaced with an electronic dobby. The dobby system is used to program the pattern (instead of treadle tie-up on other looms) uses a chain of bars which has pegs inserted to select shafts to be moved. Dressing the loom is a dream. No more crawling on the floor to do tie-up.
Included: bench, raddle, 100 program bars; Reeds 6, 8, 10, 12, 15
