Ok, I've posted this before but have now started a new subject for it. Folks at AVL and in this forum were very nice and gave me some hints on how to eliminate slack in my warp as I wind it on. I've added two new items:
1. I am now using a c-clamp to hold down pressure on my warp clip
2. I have moved my cross maker closer to the winding bobbin in its position on the wheel spoke
I still have slack in my warp. It occurs about half way thru my winding on and is the first 4 - 6 threads of the warp bout that one starts with. I am feel like I am missing something very obvious. My work around is to wind on VERY SLOWLY and manually take up the slack. Can anyone offer any other solution? Here are some photos:
This is the full view....note the c-clamp in use and the position of the crossmaker to the bobbin
Here is the slack I end up with, it is consistently the first 4 - 6 threads. I surmise it has something to do with the pulling as you wind onto the warp beam.
Thank you in advance for any help.
