I have recently purchased a 16 shaft Countermarch Toika Floor Loom and I am having trouble tying the lamms to the treadles (it came with very basic instruction so I have just been following instructions from various different websites with not much luck). From what i understand the bottom lamms need to attach to the treadles in a particular way that depends on what structures I want to weave. I have done this and have a warp on the loom all ready to go however when I take out the two stabilizing pins/rods that are placed through the holes at the very top of the loom holding it all level, the upper and bottom lamms tangle into each other not sitting in the correct horizontal position they had previously been in.
I have only ever used a Peg operated Dobby Floor Loom before so this is very alien to me. If anyone can help or has any advice it would be very much appreciated.
