I started a towel with 23.5 " , my broadest piece so far.
I was totally frustrated, the shuttle was diving under so many times what had never been a problem so far. I tried to optimize my movement with an empty shuttle, but the result was pretty poor and not reliable with normal tension.
By rewatching Episode 1.3.3, I noticed a wooden thing attached to the reet, a shuttle race as I found out. I had never paid attention to this and my Jane loom doesn't have one.
I made one by myself, the shuttle flies like a dream, but it is too wide and bumps into the cloth while beating what minimises my weaving distance to about 6cm. I will have to find a narrower solution at the hardware store.
Am I alone with this issue?
