From the photograph I can’t see if you have hooks to hold the centres of the bars in place that hold the heddles.
Do you have them; if you do they need to be hooked over the bars.
Also is there a big gap where you have beamed the warp on the left side of the back beam? That could account for the heddles being so far from the centre group.
The shed you have in the other picture looks really good.
Hope this helps!!
I have a floor lamp that has an extending arm that lights the warp well.
Lise, hello, I apologise I wasn’t clear. You cut the ends that are waiting to be threaded in the heddles. After winding my warp on the mill or board I secure the cross and then chain the rest. I put the end with the cross on the back beam rod, put the lease sticks in the cross. The rest of the warp is then ready to lay over the shafts ready to be spread in the raddle. If the warp is long I know this will be a bit tricky but I then un-chain it and cut the ends. You can then separate the outside threads to go in the raddle on the outside of the shaft cords. This is the disadvantage of the Fanny looms and Mira. I hope this rather long-winded reply helps.
Lise, hello, I have a Fanny loom .I find that when I am ready to wind on the warp I cut the threads that will have to go around the outside of the cords and put them in the raddle at the appropriate spot. Once you have finished your winding on the back beam you treat the warp like any other. Hope this is clear and helps.
Absolutely love denting.
