My David loom’s shed is not quite right

My David loom’s shed is not quite right.  (I have the sliding beater).  My shuttle keeps catching warp threads when it glides along the shuttle race.  I tried changing the shuttle I am using so that now I am using a shuttle that has turned up ends.  This helps a little bit.  It seems to […]

Broken Parallel Cord on Hollandia Loom

I am getting back to weaving after many years away from my ’80s vintage Hollandia, 110 cm, 8 harness loom.  Unfortunately, one of the parallel cords is broken.  I do have a bag of texsolv cord left over from when I put the loom together years ago but I’m not sure how to go about […]

The little black wheels and Texsolv cords on my Spring Loom shafts

The texsolv cords for my shafts go around little black wheels at the top and bottom of the loom on both sides.  However they keep coming off the wheels – it seems to be more the front shafts than the back (I’m using 1-8).  I’m doing summer and winter which is heavier on the front […]

Shed on a Louet David Loom

I have a second hand David loom, with the overhead beater. I quite like it, weaves scarves, shawls and tea towels.  I saw a comment about shed size, weavers were saying that their David s gave 2” – 3” deep sheds.  So, I measured mine and it is only 1 1/2” … I reread the […]

Extra screw holes on the Jane Loom

I have just, excitedly, put together my 40cm Jane which I am going to use for sampling and workshops. I just need to find some yarn to wind a warp. We have moved house just over a year ago and most of my yarn is still packed!! I have a question on something I have […]

Cord catching on my Spring treadle

On the Spring there is one tie-up cord that is catching a treadle every time.  The cords are all the same length.  What can I do to fix this. It is very strange, always the same cord. Shorten it by one hole…..if that doesn’t stop it, shorten it by 2 holes. Easy fix. Or,  you […]

Jane rollers

I bought my Jane loom second hand – new in the box – right around the time that the rollers were upgraded.  How can I tell whether I have the new rollers or the old ones? The new rollers are wider than the end cap.  They are 2.5cm wide. Here is a picture If you […]

Shafts and lamms not quite level on my Spring Loom

While I was weaving summer and winter towels I was having a problem with the cords jumping off the wheels on my Louet Spring and you advised me to shorten some of the cords (which I did).  I’ve now taken the towels off the loom and disconnected all the lamms, and put the locking pin […]
