Someone wrote about making a raddle, I found a photo of my raddle that I made over 20 years ago. It is a staircase bannister that was marked off in one inch increments. I staggered them to make it easy to count and resigned myself to drilling ALOT of holes. I cut and sanded ALOT of dowels and haven't looked back since. I meant to finish it off with some varnish but never made the time and haven't really suffered from it.
This set up is also shown on my old 60" Cranbrook loom. The raddle and the lease sticks are sitting in a support brace I made by gluing blocks of wood together. I left enough room so the lease sticks and raddle could shift to warn me about tension issues but not too much to create trouble. When I needed the support I clamped it on the loom, when I did not need it everything came off and was placed out of the way. enjoy Deb
