AVL Warping Wheel vs. Warping Reel
I am considering getting an AVL warping wheel. I have some sectional beams and some regular beams. I have tried several methods of warping the sectionals, and the only one that worked well was a spool rack and tension box. However, this involved winding a lot of spools and wasted quite a bit of warp. I like the idea of the wheel, but I'm not sure I would like the intermittant activity (wind on the wheel, wind on the loom, repeat). Right now, I use a very large reel. Is there anyone out there that has used both and can compare them? Has anyone tried any techniques for using it on a regular beam?
