An easy-to-operate measuring foot and small "scooping" frame provide a quick and easy way to check warp tensions.
Its 0-100 units scale and foot pressure have been carefully chosen to provide comparative warp tension measurements for most applications.
Special foot pressures are available where the standard foot pressure is too high or low.
This hand held tension comparator provides a loom operator with a visual calibrated dial indication of warp tension. The dial readings are arbitrary values unrelated to pounds, ounces, or grams, whereby each discernible reading simplifies the maintenance and record keeping of the tension forces. The reliability of this instrument is its ability to maintain repeat readings throughout the gaging range of the warp tension force.
