Need help with Structo 600
Hi everyone! I have collected three Structo 600 looms that are all in parts and pieces. My intent is to combine them to have an 8 shaft instead of the original 4, which I know will require longer side Rails. That isn’t my current problem. First, the harnesses “lock” in the high position, which seems to be the way it was designed but doesn’t make sense to me. Why would one have to reach up and release the harnesses every pick? I’m assuming this is supposed to be a rising shed rather than a sinking shed....
Second, I am, of course, missing parts. Two of the castles have torsion springs (missing some) and one has spacers between the levers. Any idea on this and if spacers will work appropriately or if I need to have custom springs made?
If I can’t get this to work, I will be selling all three for parts, which may excite some of you.
Thanks for your help!
