Re: live weight tensioning

I found that changing the rope I was using to one with more "tooth" made the difference in my live tension system. Along with the other methods of increasing friction Hans mentioned above.

I'm playing around with a live tension system at the moment as well, and one discovery was that having it balanced on both sides of the warp beam (instead of one side) is a good idea. :)

Hi Everyone 

If you are looking for pictures of wood weight box and diagram. Hand Weaving and Cloth Design by Marianne Straub page 23. The set up is not shown on barn loom. Shown on George Wood Loom. When I want to see something done I check out you tube videos. Type in to your search (you tube live weight tension on floor loom) The first video that comes is is one done by Kati M. I think you will enjoy seeing the video 

Keep Weaving
