I think I'm going to have to use the damask pulleys for my drawloom. I obviously have the vertical countermarche. I have turned the jacks over, like the picture that came with the drawloom attachment. However the jacks still look like they are going to interfere with the draw cords. Did I do something wrong?
Looking at the picture your bridge is not height adjustable (I have the older one which does), with pulleys you can only weave 4, 6, 8 - I have pulleys on mine and sometimes wish to use 5 end satin and have to re-install the countermarch. Once some pattern shafts are in place you will have a better idea, you may have to set the pattern shafts back a tad farther.
What are you using for counterweights? YOur coupers should be standing straight at rest.
You do not have any pattern shafts hung as yet.
Your pattern shafts should rest well behind the ground shafts and the cords will work just fine to lift them as intended.
I thought I would use elastics. Maybe I'm wirrying too much. Will the jacks not move side to side much during tgreadling? I could move the pivot point of the jacks up to the top hole. Is that where they should pivot from?
Yes I needed to move the jacks down a bit more!
When you are using the countermarch, you do not need that extra board which is sitting in front of the countermarch. That is used when you tie up counterbalance. So, take it off and move the countermarch up close to the beater cradles. Put the locking pin into the countermarch jacks. Then you can get a better look at it.
I did not get your two recent drawloom questions, but when I went to the group, it said that I was a member.
Also, you have the jacks attached into the hole which is the locking pin hole. The hole used for the jacks is the one below it on the cross bar of the frame.
The placement of the jacks in the locking pin hole was in fact tge problem!
Now I just need to figure out what the movers did with the second pattern support bar! I'm so close I can taste it! :)
