Re: Weighted warp beam

Has anybody tried weighting the warp beam to provide continuously adjusted
tension?
We use a similar system, of setting the warp brakes to allow continuous
tension. I've only seen drawings of old looms with a weight box suspended
behind the loom, I don't know if they had to re-adjust the box when it
touched the floor, or if it used a smaller trigger weight, to allow the
ropes to slip.
