I am trying to tie on my first project to my Ideal after adding an additional 4 shafts. I have been working on this for months. Using Joanne's book and looking at page 25 I have a question. Some of my shafts don't move at all. Using Shaft 1 as an example, if it doesn't move and it should be moving up, does that mean I need to shorten the cord to the long lamms?
Also, the cords for tying up the new Jacks are longer than the cords that came with the loom, it has had previous owners. Do I shorten the new cords to equal the old ones or replace the old ones?
