Re: weaving on the G! creaking

Though I've said it before, I'll say it again - use Paraffin, NOT beeswax as a lube. Beeswax is somewhat sticky- perfect for drive bands, but not for reducing friction. Paraffin on the wood-to-wood bearings of warp and cloth beams is also a good idea - much easier to do while assembling the loom than after. Kati

Treadle with Joy,
