I’m learning to use a beautiful second-hand twelve shaft Louët Spring I bought from a member of my local Weavers and Spinners Guild. I thought it might be good to have a thread for any questions about this, since it looks like a pretty commonly used loom. it seems to be the Volvo station wagon of floor looms.
I find sometimes the cords of the first and second shafts jump off their pulleys. I don’t see it happening so I’m not sure what’s going on. Should I concentrate on lifting ALL the tension off the treadles before pressing the next one (like a one- footed technique), or should I be tuning up the tension on all the cables?
