Hi, I am a lurker, my name is Kyla and I am a beginer, but I am having
issues with my loom (I goggled and searched in the archives first). I
have a used Seivers floor loom, and the front beam falls out of
tension. It is like a stopper falls loose that then the whole thing
goes. (I have a link to a drawing to clarify) The gear and stopper are
brass and where the issue is has started to discolor.
Has anyone else had this problem? I have thought of filing the area,
or some how adding bulk to it (with wax, solder, or an adhesive spongy
pad (like a jar opener pad), molding paste). I feel as if it needs
more friction. I figure if I can contact the company and they can send
me a new beam or stopper . . . but right now I need temporary fix. (I
have a wedding throw on it). I try and not use that part but
sometimes it hits the sweet spot on the loom and I hate to move it.
If any one has a Seivers loom could you send me an image of that area?
Maybe my stopper is on backwards.
thanks for any help.
