Has anyone heard of this gentlmean in Germany.  His name is Andreas Moller.  He makes a very interesting counter balance loom called The Flying 8.  Here is his website.


It can be built with only hammer and nails.

I am wondering if is it true that we cannot do doubleweave easily on a counterbalance loom vs a jack loom because on a counterbalance loom, we cannot raise 3 shafts altogether?

Reading drafts for counterbalance v. jack loom.

I am new to weaving, and have a Leclerc counterbalance loom. Are there any special tips or rules to follow when reading drafts? I think most are designed for jack looms that have a rising shed. If the draft has harness 1 going up, does that mean I need to move 2, 3 and 4 down on my counterbalance loom? Or will the pattern just develop on the underside of the weave as I go? For my first sampler, I depressed 2, 3 and 4 when it said 1 should be up, and it was tricky to remember and work. Maybe there is an alternate tie up method?

BTW, weaving is awesome!!
