I have my new-to-me 1985 AVL PDL up and running. The flyshuttle was pretty cranky, but we seem to have come to an agreement. The dobby was repeating sheds; I tightened the left treadle and that seems to have stopped. The tension is working, the laptop is talking to the dobby; we're making towels. I had trouble with the edge stitches not always weaving because of the huck floats in the pattern. This is a huck check from Strickler's 8 shaft pattern book, and makes great towels. I rethreaded the outside 6 threads on shafts 9 and 10 as selvedges, added them to the pattern as tabby. They don't always weave properly. If I just raise the shafts and watch, without throwing the shuttle, I see 9 rise, then 10 rise, etc; which should give me tabby selvedges. When I start actually weaving, sometimes it works, and sometimes the selvedge threads do not weave. Any ideas? After threading selvedges, I really don't want to add a FS, especially since I don't really want to rig it with this flying shuttle.
