I have a 10 harness, 10 treadle Oxaback Ulla Cyrus. I have warped it for the first time and woven about 18 inches of plain weave. I am using just two shafts,two treadles, two upper and two lower lams. I am having issues which I believe to be caused by the colliding of the lams. The shafts don't move properly at times and have fallen off. My two shafts are hung at the front of the loom and I am using the two treadles on the left, but have all of the treadles on the loom. I just have the lams I am using on the loom. I have put some spacers between the shafts, but not enough to hold them exactly in place. This has not helped.
Should I space them tightly? And, how should they line up under the shafts?
Thank you for any advice you can give me, Jo Raymond
