Hi thank you that article was a good help.
Can I ask a further question.
I have it all set up and am now up to hooking up the treadles.
I am just trying for a tabby 1 & 3 on treadle 1 and 2 & 4 on treadle 2.
When I take out the pins to test it the raising shafts happen but not the lowering ones and the shafts when nothing is pressed (neutral position) have dropped down and the treadle has come up a lot.
Hope this makes sense. It is like the sinking shafts are not working to counterbalance the weight of the rising.
I have tied it up as follows for 1 treadle.
shaft 1 rising
shaft 2 sinking
shaft 3 rising
shaft 4 sinking
Every shaft is tied to something so I am not understanding why I cant get the sinking shafts to work. Any ideas please.
