How can I stop the pulley cords from slipping off the lower lamm pulley wheels?

Hi Jane,  Since I started great workshops with you I lusted after a Spring Loom and have acquired an older model second hand one.  I love my Spring for all the great things it does for me, e.g. tension and great shed, but have a slight problem and I need your advice. How can I stop the pulley cords from slipping off the lower lam pulley wheels? This happens on occasion whilst I am weaving and I am not sure what I should  do to adjust this problem.

I’m so glad you were able to get yourself a Spring Loom.  It sounds like you have one of the first editions which didn’t have a little screw eye for that cord to slip through.  I am attaching a photo of the newer version so you can see what to do.

Screw Eye for Pulley Cord

A simple eye hook gets screwed into the side of the loom and then you remove the cord from the front, thread it through the eye hook and then re-attach it to the front.  You’ll get it no problemo!
