The Extended takadai has been designed to allow the braider to make wider braids with twenty-two 9-pin koma. So if you have been thinking it would be nice to make a wide sash or scarf, this is the tool. It is 26.5" (67.5cm) high and 33.5" (86cm) wide by 32.29" (82cm) deep. The torii is 13.38" (340mm) wide. The longer arms allow as many as 162 working tama and wider braids!
We use a fastener system that was originally developed for use in conference booths because they were reassembled so often. Our takadai can also be assembled and disassembled thousands of times without worry that there will be any failure of the bolt and dowel pin assembly.
Eighty-five gram tama are traditionally used with the takadai.
Our equipment is made to order in a one-man shop, the wait list for all equipment EXCEPT marudai is 18 months.
The wait for MARUDAI and CORE STAND is around 2 weeks.
There is no deposit or obligation to get on our list; email us for ship dates when you order.
