|Garage full of Weaver's Friend loom parts.|
It now sits on my garage floor in multiple parts.
This part attaches to the crankshaft and the lower back frame support board, and is cracked enough to not be usable.
My hope is to get the restoration done by next week and get a warp on and threaded by the beginning of July. If that all happens and everything is working well, it will take a trip over to the Walloon Lake Antique Flywheelers grounds to be used as a demonstration loom at the end of July.
That is all contingent on how I am feeling on any given day. I am halfway through my chemo treatments, with my forth one scheduled next Thursday. I have four or five days of not feeling well following treatment, and am finding I am getting progressively more tired from each one. Daily afternoon naps have become part of the routine. This project has been a nice distraction.
I have started cleaning the loom and removing cast iron parts and painting them. My next post will start showing my progress.
