The rolls of Texsolv cording and the heddles I ordered arrived in the mail over the weekend. I was able to start cutting the cording after Bob helped me put the jacks, lower lamms and treadles on the loom.
I measured each piece and tried it on the loom before cutting all of them. The cording is expensive, so I didn't want to waste any, since I was cutting four to eight pieces of each length.
I am adding a long piece at the bottom of the "v" that extends to the lower lamms.
We had to take the lamms back off because we realized we forgot to add the hooks for the other end of the cord. Bob needed to use the drill press.
They should be clipped only after installing them. If I found I had ordered the wrong size, I wouldn't be able to return clipped heddles. The heddles were very tight on the bars until I took off the twist ties and spread them out.
Since I usually thread my looms from the center to the edges, I separated and counted half to each end of the bars.
Having just had cataract surgery the day before, this was about all I could do today. Hopefully I can get more done tomorrow.
