Weaver's Delight Restoration - It's Looking Like a Loom!
I was able to attach the other "flapper thingy" on the fly shuttle temporarily, until I get an oblong washer that needs replacing and the correct bolt that my dad is going to make for it.
The apron was another fairly simple job to tack on, once I installed the cloth beam.
After adjusting the brackets that hold the shafts, all four of them slid in easily.
I still haven't attached the picker sticks, since I am still waiting for the new pickers and leather straps. Hopefully, they will arrive soon.
It was getting dark out and the mosquitoes were getting annoying, so I will get the rest of the red frame cleaned up and painted tomorrow. My favorite color!
I've started looking at some rug books for inspiration. I will have to be deciding what my first project will be very soon.
