Should the heddles be higher
i bought a beautiful piece of furniture that was called a loom with the description needs a bit of TLC. i thought that meant needed repair. I wasn’t expecting to be the third owner of a loom that nobody had been able to make work. I think that the loom would work better if I raised the heddles so that the warp was in a straight line with the two beams To give a wider shed.
would it be better to lower the beater to widen the shed, or perhaps a bit of both.
I can already hear the comments about buying a loom without trying it out first, Even if I scrap this loom and use the parts to make a better loom I got a bargain. I am amazed that someone who was obviously a skilled woodworker would build something like this that didn’t work. When I get this loom so that it is a joy to use I will make a post showing all of my modifications.
