|Tap the rod towards the front of the loom.|
Jacks - Loosen the collar in the rod that goes thru the jacks and then tap this metal rod towards the front of the loom. Apply some Vaseline to the existing jacks. Slide on the new jacks and apply more Vaseline. Be sure to keep the jacks in the proper numbered sequence, there are stamped numbers on each jack. Put the collar back on the rod and tighten it down.
Tap the rod back in place.
|Apply Vaseline to the rod between the jacks.|
|Tap the rod back once the jacks are installed.|
|Remove center lamm guide.|
|Apply Vaseline and slide steel rod forward.|
|Add new lamms and apply Vaseline.|
|Support lamms with a prop of the appropriate height.|
|Thread the side wires thru the guide.|
Harnesses - Hang each harness from the s hooks and chains. Be sure that the heddle rod clips all face front. The harnesses do not have a specific sequence and can placed in any order.
|Hang the new harnesses from the s hooks.|
|Loosen the collar on the treadle rod.|
|Tap the rod to one side after the collar is loosened.|
|Support the beam upright with a small prop.|
|Add the treadles both right and left.|
Now test out your new harnesses by adding the tie-up hooks to the treadles and lamms!
PLEASE Refer to the Macomber notes above for more details on all of these steps. My photos and notes are meant as a support to what has already been written for instruction.
Good luck...and happy weaving with more harnesses!!
