Warping boards are the most commonly used measuring devices. Schacht warping boards are available in two sizes: the 14 yard warping board measures 36‚Ä≥ across and the 4-1/2 yard warping board measures 18‚Ä≥ across. To withstand the strain of threads under tension, they tenon the hardwood dowels and press them securely into the frame.
Warping mills are faster and less tiring for long warps: they move so you don‚Äôt have to go back and forth with your arms. The horizontal warping mill has a two-yard circumference and will hold up to 18 yards of warp. It can be folded up for storage and may be used on a table or the floor.
