Replacing the Cords/Ropes on Older Kessenich Floor Loom

I tried finding a place to put this information but do not see a group for Kessenich looms. I have an older/1950's cherry Kessenich 36" floor loom and for the second time needed to replace the internal cords that wrap around the pipes and the pulleys. I redid the cords about 10-12 years ago, I've had the loom since 1978, but the cord stretched and became soft. I used what was recommended at the time, #2 Samson venetion blind cord.  Since my shafts had become uneven I decided to go through the process one more time. Needless to say I dreaded what was ahead of me.  I was surprised to find little information regarding this problem on the web. Hence I am posting information on here to help the next person struggling with with very difficult job.  I will post the 5 pages of information I recently put together. I made a PDF file but can't post it here. Try this https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FTtUTfGv8lyOE5DgZau_mjgZjoWKqPZp/view  It can be found on my blog, wwindhorses.blogspot.com.  It's free and if you comments to add to improve it, let me know.
