      Thank you everyone for all your input. I finally got it working. I spoke on email with Nina at Camilla Valley Farm and she walked me through loosening the screw holding the pawl with the take up handle and using steel wool to remove the rust on the brake circle and the brake drum (which she said was probably causing the problem). Anyway, I’m able to advance my warp FINALLY and move forward and continue weaving today. Thank you all again for your help!!

        Hi Kathleen, So I tried what you said to do. When it came time to advance my warp I put the break treadle down, latched it and started to use the take up motion handle to advance. The warp just got tighter and tighter and the back warp beam didn’t move at all. So it only moves clockwise when I warp it and doesn’t move counter clockwise to advance. I’m thinking maybe the brake circle is not working properly and needs to be replaced.

          Thank you Kathleen for the reply. What you say does make sense. I will try it tomorrow with a new warp and let you know how it goes.

            Thank you Ginette, It was a small warp and was frustrated and cut off the warp. I’m pretty sure it was wound on properly I wrapped it over the back beam and wound on warp with paper.  I do have pictures of the braking mechanism.

              Thank you so much Heidi. I’ve called and they’re on summer holiday until Aug. 3 so I’ll call back when they’re open.
