Need ratchet for 21" Dorsett Loom
I need the ratchet (the part with the teeth) and the center pin to attach to the end of the back beam of my 21" Dorset loom. Anybody know where I can buy one?
Could the person who mentioned the bungee cord solution to create tension on the back beam describe it a little more? I'm trying to picture it.................
Also, I have an answer for the person who wondered why the treadles were tied up (from the left) 4-2-3-1. If you are treadling twill, and want to treadle 12, 14, 34, 23, you will find this a convenient tie-up because you will only move one foot at a time to create the next shed. It is called a "walking" tie-up.
I also would love to know what that extra strip of wood attached with wing nuts to the back beam is for.
Thanks for your help!!!
