Toika Tabby Tie-up -- finding balance for treadles
Hello Toika friends! I am having trouble balancing my tie-up for a 150cm Liisa with an 8 inch tabby warp. I have 4 shafts and 6 treadles on the loom. I hooked up my tabby ties to the outer treadles (1/3 and 2/4) and they are correct. At first I only tied up the two outer treadles to the 4 harnesses. When the locking pins were removed, the harness and treadles moved and no decent shed formed. My notes from Barbara Elkin at Webs recommend tying up six treadles even for a tabby weave but do not specify upper/lower lamm tie-ups for the inner four treadles which will not be used for the tabby pattern. I have six treadles on the loom now and locking pins ready to go. Any suggestions? Also, does the width of the warp have any effect on the balance of the loom or is that a red herring?
