The Warp Wench is a tensioning system designed to help weavers achieve consistent tension while independently winding a warp onto a small loom. The specially designed coating on the rods adds surface area in order to increase the drag on the warp ends as they pass through the rods, creating the tension that is needed to wind on the warp without having to hold the warp chain at the same time. You can use 2, 3, or 4 rods in order to get the tension you are looking for on your warp. The clamps were designed to keep the rods in place no matter the tension being created by the warp.
Currently the Warp Wench can be used on most table looms and rigid heddle looms using several different methods for winding onto the beam. Please see the videos below for demonstrations of how to use the Warp Wench on your loom.
