Cloth Storage on older AVL PDL
Ok, I’m stymied. If anyone out there has a picture or could post a few pictures, i’d be forever grateful. I have an older AVL PDL. It has the cloth storage take up system with the weight on the outside of the loom, on the track.
This is slightly different than my A-Series and i'm going gray over not being able to figure it out!
My problem is that I can see how the cord routes, but the minute I start winding the weight from the bottom, the bottom rod that the aprons goes under to the front of the loom POPS off! Also, in my A-Series, I had a pin that would go through the back drum holding it in place. On this loom there’s a pawl and rachet system.
If you have this older loom, would you be so kind as to take and post a picture of the outside pulley system and at the back of the loom so I can see how you’re stabilizing the tension and holding it on the cloth take up beam?
I hate being mechanically challenged!
