One of the things to look for is the loom having vertical jacks. ThisThe Vertical Upper Jack CM is also easily converted into a "reverse jack"
loom if desired. Both CM looms are great for sticky warp and shaft switching
I wonder how the Jack label became attached to the Coupers or Tumblers high
up on the castle and also the under-levers that push up the shafts on a "
Jack " loom ? It's confusing when two entirely different parts have the same
name. I think that the first Jack looms had upper levers to PULL up the
shafts, then when PUSH up shafts were introduced, the Jack name was used for
them too ?
I sure hope Janet Meany comes out with her book on loom history soon !
