Loom troubles

OK these pictures are for MadCity Mike;  here is what I set up.  I know I didn't warp the correct no. of strands of warp but I don't feel it has anything to do with my problem.  Was just trying to get some warp on to see how the treddles would work.

The third picture shows how the warp does not lay to the bottom of the reed. And this is with it at resting position.    I am thinking I want to get rid of the metal headles and the steel cable for the counter balance part in the castle.  I think it is still doable.  Still plan to get that nice guy from the college to come make a home visit.

  1. Thank you for the you have lease sticks in your warp? From what I can see in the first photo.....the warp is coming directly from the warp beam. This could be your problem as to why the shed is not lying flat. If you don't have the lease sticks in, you can weaving through and insert the pair.
    "Hope" this helps........
