I got this beadalon expandable beading loom, and I was trying to figure out how to attach the warp threads to it. It doesn't have any screws or anything on the wooden rollers, but it does have holes. How in the world do I attach the warps to it? Thanks for any help. Here's a pic of the loom:

As far as I understand, you just thread the warpthreads through the holes and tie them stuck there. Smiley
Can't promise anything, but I imagine myself that's how we did with my lil newbie table loom.

That's what I thought at first, but the holes don't go all the way through!

Aren't there any plugs that go into the holes then?

No. Actually when I looked at it again, they do go through, but it will be hard to thread still. I wish it came with instructions.

yeah, I hate things that don't come with a manual Sad
A trick could be to tie the warp to a thinner thread, and this thinner thread might go through the holes, on a needle or whatnot?

You could also use a thin-gauge wire doubled and poked through the hole as a sort of threader.

Poke the threads through the holes, wrap them round the dowel a couple of times and then use some tape Cheesy You'll have to restick it every time you move up the threads, but I've found tape useful to keep the tension anyways.

okay-I do not have one of those but it LOOKS like you have to thread the string in the hole then spin the wood thing then deal with the securing of all the strings on other side?? What about using a large bead to stop it from coming through.
Hope this helps,
