Re: [MedievalSawdust] Re: inkle loom question
- Hey Conal... did you ever draft up some plans/measured drawings for the version of this loom that you made? (For anybody who wants to see it, check out Conal's pics in the 'Photos' areas of the group...)Only note on this design... some versions have an upper 'trestle' between the upright poles as well as the lower one... it can help to form a more rigid frame when the cords are tensioned as they do have a bit of flex if you tension the warp too tight...Any tips on using it?Chas.
- I'm trying to make/find time to do
some MAJOR updating on my website
and get that stuff out.
The file for that is WAY too big to
send through a dial-up connection
As soon I I finish reading my email
I'm heading down to my shop to clean
re-arrange and make room for new power
tools... ( Life's rough when you have
to make room for tools.... )

- Definately a worthy, period tablet weaving loom. Perhaps some more
information would be in order about it's origins and use to help
convince the individual who asked about Inkle Looms that this may be
a more appropriate answer for her.
who's wife wants an Inkle loom regardless of it's historical

- period inkle loom before 1450...
Inkle, meaning a narrow ribbon or band...
12c illumination shows a woman weaving. Her loom is a verticle board
with 8 long slot and a hole between them. This is basically a rigid
heddle, but one that does not move, but is attached to a stand. It
is not for card weaving. The far end of the threads are attached to
the wall and the other to her.
