Re: Adjusting heddle height on a Fireside jack loom

Rob all ‘rising shed’ jacks are designed with heddle eyes 1-1.5 inches lower than the beams. That’s how you get your shed. Sinking shed jacks are just the opposite…with a high warp that drops down to open the shed

After years of idleness I am moving from a Glimaka to a Fireside jack loom. Dressing the loom with my first warp I noticed the heddle line is lower than the back and breast beams. Is this usual for jack looms? If not, does anyone know how to raise the shafts on a Fireside?

Thanks, Rob
