The Nilus II 4s is available in two versions- Jack or counterbalance. The 8s loom is available in 3 versions - Jack, Jack with Back Hinge Treadles and Countermarche.

The Nilus II loom has been designed with a stabilizer foot, for better stability. The shed is always good with any tie-up combination. The counter-balanced version is built with an integrated shed regulator, so it is possible to weave any kind of material. On the jack-type version, the top can be easily removed, allowing easy access to the shafts for the addition or removal of heddles. Heddles used are 12½" (31.7 cm) long.

It is a loom with independent shafts, guided by pegs at each side, preventing friction of the frames which are pushed upwards by an underneath mechanism. All Nilus II looms have non-sliding polyvinyl foot pads under the uprights to keep it solid on the floor. It is equipped with a friction brake giving perfect tension every time. The front cloth beam and back thread beam are removable for easy threading, and the warp beam is also removeable for outside beaming when required. All looms are equipped with a regular plain beam to which a set of rake-like pieces can be added to convert it into a sectional warp beam. Special kits have been designed to convert the regular 4 shaft jack-type into an 8 shaft jack-type loom. A new back hinge treadle kit is also available. Any Nilus II 8 shaft can be upgraded to a back hinge treadle loom.
