Thanks so much for the advice and encouragement! I appreciate more than you could ever imagine! I have Glimåkra looms and they both have countermarch actions on them so I'm 100% on your side as far as that's concerned. I can move my beater bar back to accommodate my weaving and of course, I do have to advance the warp every once in a while, BUT could my warp tension have anything with the draw-in? I'm dreaming of the day when I can chuck the temples out the door forever! When I joined your school and watched my first video or two, of course I tried just throwing the shuttle and the draw-in was almost negligible, but once I started braking the bobbin, putting in angle, and beating, it kept getting worse & worse. So, I stopped braking almost completely and it's slightly better, but the edges went to pot again. I think it's one of the 'Rock & Hard Place' scenarios. : ) Is there any way you could rig a camera over your head so I/we could see what you are doing with your hands, thread, fingers, etc. as you work? I'm hoping if I see you working, I might figure out what you're doing. ? ? ? Well, it could be just a pipe dream, but it'd be more than grabbing at straws.
Thanks so much for all your help! This is so much fu!
