I notice that raising four shafts is quite heavy even without a warp on it.
So the next question is whether texsolv heddles in place of the metal would
make much difference to ease of treadling.
Yes it would make the treadling easier but it might start " floating" the
shafts, which would be a real pain in the shed ! If it's a Jack loom, heavy
shafts are normal, as usually only gravity holds down the lower part of the
shed.
Use candle wax or paraffin in the castle grooves ( if any ) and that'll
help; part of the effort is plain old friction.
