terminology for counterbalanced looms
"Överbindning" is the Swedish word for tying the shafts to the pulleys/horses/rollers at the top of the loom. (Literally it can be translated as "upper tie-up")
Here in Sweden it is an important term, and most books have diagrams of how to tie (mount?) two shafts, three shafts, four shafts, five shafts, six shafts... with the help of pulleys and horses in (sometimes) several levels.
It also figures in weave descriptions, both in books and in VÄV magazine: "överbindning drälltrissor" (means this works best using drälltrissor) or "överbindning kontramarsch" (means this needs a countermarche, will not work with any counterbalanced system)
What word(s) can I use for överbindning, when talking/writing to a "generic weaver"? (It is alwayspossible to use lots of words and explanations, but if there is a term it would be so much easier... :-)
