Anyone else have a Barbara V loom from Thought products? I am wanting to set mine up countermarche and would be grateful if any one had photos in this set up?

I need help. I have used the Peter's Collingswood universal tie -up but my lams are not even. Some are almost laying on the treddles. I would love to visit with someone the owns a Harrisville countermarch rug loom.

<p>I&#39;m wondering if you managed to convert your loom to a countermarche?</p><p>I have a Cassandra loom made by same company. I don&#39;t weave anything on it that requires a whole lot of tension because it is not a &#39;square&#39; design.</p><p>Suzi</p>

I am not familiar with the Cassandra, but my Barbara IV came with cable brakes on both warp and cloth beams.  This was supposed to make it possible to adjust the tension finely, but I found it was endlessly fiddly and would not hold enough tension to do rep.  I replaced the warp drum with a ratchet and pawl from Leclerc.  The barbara IV will not do countermarche.
