Just finished the tie-on to the front rod, all nice and tight and then……noticed that I missed a couple of dents, and one dent has 3 threads. This is a 12 dent reed, 16/2 cotton, 2 per dent. I believe that to make it correct I will have to untie, re-sley and retie. Didn’t want to do all that and then have you say Oh but you coulda shoulda. This would be the third sleying as the first was incorrect – I miss counted and ran out of dents.
I’m sorry to tell you that you have to re-sley. Make sure to check it every inch so you catch any error early. Good luck.
