      I have an ancient Leclerc Artistat (4-shaft Jack loom) that has been through many owners over its life.  When I received it, it was in bad repair, and I had to do a lot of work to get it going again.  One of the things I did was replace the “bumpers” that help the shafts have a softer landing when coming back down.  After watching this video, and seeing that the shafts should be lower, I went back to my loom and removed those bumpers.  Sure, it’s a little louder, but my raceway is free and clear for my shuttle now!  I’ve been struggling so much getting my shuttle to fly across, and it was all because of those bumpers raising the shafts just a wee bit.  This video is worth the annual fee alone – I have NEVER seen any documentation about where the warp should lie on a Jack loom until this video, and I’ve have had a fair amount of research to figure out how to get my loom in working order again. Thank you!!

        I have my loom in a carpeted room – I’m thinking that the book weight method won’t work too well with the carpet dragging on the warp?
