Treadle Tie Up Query
I am the proud new owner of a Mighty Wolf loom but am rather confused regards the treadle tie up. I was under the impression that you could tie the treadles as per a countermarche loom, ie treadle one can operate shafts 1 and 3, treadle two operates shafts 2 and 4 if you were doing a plain weave.
However when I showed a weaving friend my new loom, she told me that you can only use a direct tie up with the Mighty wolf and if you want shafts 1 and 3 to raise, then you need to press treadles 1 and 3.
I am in Australia and there are very few Schacht looms around, and I have not seen another one in my area, so I cannot ask a local Schact weaver. It is my belief that my friend has the Mighty Wolf and Baby Wolf looms confused with the Wolf Pup.
If anyone could clear the confusion for me I would be very grateful.
