Tired of the trapeze and weights or don't have room for that? Crank and yank too tedious for you? Give this a try.
Run 2 sticks from the front to the back on each side of the loom and secure with hair ties or similar.
Then run 1" dowels parallel with the warp beam and secure with hair ties.
Lay the warp over the dowels and attach to warp beam in your usual manner.
Lay 2 more dowels on top of the warp between the 2 existing dowels. Secure with hair ties.
Beam your warp without any intervention other than going to the front to manage any snarles.
Naturally, remove after beaming. If you leave it in, you will not be able to make a decent shed. This is basic geometry.
No more weights, no more crank and yank. Try it! You will not be disappointed. I have been using this system on my floor looms for ages and tried it on my rigid heddle with the same pleasureable results.
