Re: Friction Brakes

Bill Koepp <bgkoe@...>

the loom
was only a year or so old and had been oiled as part of the finishing
(Harrisville kit). No problems back then, or when it was last oiled,
years ago now. Only problems are recently.
Hmmm.... Still, it won't hurt to wash the ropes and the beam area where they
touch; something has changed or been added to the brake. It may be that the
ropes are shot, in which case that's easy to replace. Difficult to talk
about without seeing the loom itself. Usually a brake problem is a result of
re-assembling the parts wrong but in your case that's not the reason
