Getting back to weaving after 20 years. I purchased my 1960 Herald loom a few months ago. I have woven several easy scarves so far, but running into complications with this old beauty. The wood harnesses seem to stick in the up position on occasion...sometimes 1 & 2, other times just 3, once in awhile 234! It's driving me crazy and not allowing a very fluid weaving process when I have to beat on them to get them to fall back down into place. And the metal pins that push the harness up will occasionally pull out when the treadles are released, which has been frustrating too.
So I am wondering if anyone has any quick fixes to alleviate this kind of problem?
Also...I was fortunate to get the complete manual to this 45" 8 harness loom from its original owner. If anyone would like a copy with the blueprint drawings and specifications I will definately share.
