Dear Vernice--

Perhaps you hadn't read far enough in your email to know that we had requested that no more messages be posted in response to Pat Lawrence's msg about spam. Discussions about viruses, spam, or anything else to do with computers (except in the context of computer-aided weaving) are off-topic for WeaveTech. It is not fair to people who must pay by the minute (sometimes at international telephone rates) to download email if the rest of us clutter up the list with off-topic posts.

Please do not post on this or other non-weaving-related topics again. Thank you for your cooperation.

My server is doing the same thing and it really helps. In the beginning it
was catching a lot of weavetech messages, probably because of the "tech" in
the name (?) but you can check the addresses you want to keep and after a
couple of weeks that isn't happening so much.

Lucky Me! rare spam messages

Vernice Myers <vmyers@...>
 

In the beginning to lessen the spam messages, and as I use Outlook Express,....go to Tools, message rules, block senders. Then a box appears. To this box add any e-mail addresses you want to be blocked. I hope that I have this correct. It was time consuming to use it for the great number of unwanted messages I received at the time.
But now my server has joined up with spam@postinicorp.com It is no extra cost to me. My server is vcn.com (but they still let me use wavecom.net...their old name) I now rarely receive more than a couple un wanted e-mails per week. About twice a week they send me a list of what they think are unwanted e-mails to me and in a small box I just check off send or delete. Or one can glance thru all the junk and delete all with one click. On one side of the unwanted mail is a short description of what it contains.
I know this will not be of any help to all readers because I believe vcn is only being used in certain mountain states. (Wy., Mt., S.D. etc.) One could contact vcn.com and see what all states they cover. Or spam@postinicorp.com for more information. It is a wonderful service. Besides the junk mail it also filters viruses. If you think I can offer you any more information, contact me via private e-mail only. Vernice vmyers@wavecom.net

What is it that you like about this type of beater?
Is it true that rugs are easier to beat with them?

I owned a Cranbrook made in 1991 which came with "arms" to hold the beater
back in place. The beater had a metal plate along its length for extra
weight when beating rugs. When pused to its rear position the magnets on the
"arms" which were attached to the side uprights of the loom would hold the
beam back. I found this useful when I was working on rep rugs, for example,

I do like the overhead beater !
The only advantage an underslung beater has is size; it's smaller. It's
usually used to make the loom more portable or smaller in my opinion, as
there's no high castle.
To tune the overhead beater, you can move the pivot piece from the front of
the pivot bar to the rear or the reverse.The pivot piece can be wedge or
chisel shaped. You can also move a steel bar from the rear to the front;
all of these will change the hang angle of the beater. Usually the overhead
beater has a larger swing arc and returns to the start position by itself,
unlike most underslung beaters that have to be pushed back. I'd put a steel
bar on ANY beater, for rugs.
The last resort is adding an elastic cord to each sword ( side ) of the
beater. If your beater then rests too far for you to comfortably reach it,
just add a nice wooden handle to the front reed-cap or shell.

Re: overhead beaters

ben barnard <bengoodwater@...>
 

Joan,
I have two looms with overhead beaters and two that
are underslung. One of the overheads is a 1760 linen
loom, the other is a Glimakra Standard. You do have
to push them back. The old loom much more than the
Glimakra. On the old loom, when you let go of the
batten it will stop right at the fell. There is more
room on the Glimakra. However I perfer to use these
two looms. You may try setting the beater back, but
the motion of pushing it back with one hand while you
throw the shuttle with the other will become habitual.
I have caught myself tring to push back the
underslung as well.
Happy Weaving,

I too have had the PROBLEM with the raddle lid coming off. We solved this
by getting hooks using them in place of the springs.

We looked for hooks of the type that used to be used to hold a screen door
closed, but couldn't find any small enough. I started searching for
something that could be used, and came up with a heavy duty plate and cup
holder from the craft store. There were hooks that went over the plate
that we cut off and they even had the "eye" part to put onto the eye of
the raddle lid. they fit through the eye on the bottom of the raddle
holder and voila! No more popping off. This fix cost $1.98! You need
something to cut the wire is all. Now if you wanted you could get some
heavy gauge wire and make the hooks. I am very happy with this solution

I work in Information Systems - that means that I have "registered" with
software
related sites professionally and get the appropriate "spam".
Almost daily I get offers to SEND millions of emails to help my "business".
It seems that these "offers" have increased since several DOTCOMS died, and
that pressure is on for the remaining Internet jockeys to "perform". I also
get a lot more just plain ad type email - Gasrdeners Supply, Orvis, Crate &
Barrel - all places I shop and don't mind being informed of sales offers,
but
lately even they have been doing more of the emailing.
Even Yahoo and eBay seem to feel a crunch and have increased the banner ads
and other "logos" that appear any time you log in. With the Anthrax scares
of
last fall and the cost of paper mailings, this will probably explode into a
total nuisance before the clutter begins to clear. Also, I have the feelling
that Yahoo is offering many "free services" now that will cost a monthly or
yearly subscription fee in the future - including things like our group.
One source that I didn't suspect was classmates.com - was asked to register
my name and email for a class reunion (which I did not attend) and got
really
funky junk mail after that. Just before Xmas, I cancelled that and the
strangest
of the mail seemed to quiet down. Another risk is that with fiber related

- and our site name Woolgatherers - I have somehow gotten listed with
several
bestiality sites. Just one of those things you live with - and push the

Subject: ball winder to add twist

I was told that thre exists a ball winder with which you can wind
three threads, and these threads get a little twist by winding.
The twist comes not in the winding, but when you pull the yarn from the
ball after winding. If you wind 3 threads together onto a ball winder,
the threads will take on a small amount of twist when they come OUT of
the ball, but it will only be 1 twist each time the threads come from
around the center of the ball.

To demonstrate this for yourself simply, cut a long strip of paper, or
take your tape measure, & roll it up, then pull the end in the center
straight up. It will have a twist, whether it is one strip or multiple
strips.

Hildburg,
I have seen such a device, but they haven't been manufactured for
years. Occasionally one shows up on eBay, listed as a "yarn twister."
The standard $37 ballwinder makes a ball in which the yarns have no
added twist. Then, if you use them as center-pull balls, a *little* twist is
added when the yarn is delivered. If you create a ball from several strands
of yarn, they will twine enough to stay together, but not nearly enough to
be considered one strand of plied yarn.
Peggy Osterkamp uses a doubling stand to accomplish the same effect;
see

http://weaving.cc/leasesticks/sep00tip.html

Peggy says that these twined yarns must *not* be used as warp:

"Use the doubling technique for WEFTS ONLY because the yarn tension on the
top cone is much less than on the lower cones. I learned that lesson the
hard way--the loose yarns gave terrible warp tension problems. Take this
advice!"

Subject: Re: Rag weaving

bias strips fray less, so you get slightly less of
the "halo" of frayed fabric
Ruth,
I have read the opposite; that bias strips actually fray more. Bias
cuts are the basis of "faux chenille", in which layers of fabric are
stitched together and then slashed (leaving the bottom layer intact). The
slashes must cut diagonally to the grain so the cut edges will fray during
washing, creating a chenille effect.
Sometimes wool batting is used next to the base layer to make the
frayed edges stick out more. I made some samples but faux chenille was not
the look I was after, so now I have leftover wool batting.
I was wondering....would this batting be suitable as rag weft? It is
more like felt than a batt, because the manufacturer punched the fibers with
felting needles to make it hold together. So I guess the question really is:
Does felt make satisfactory rag weft?

Another thought on using the warping wheel when you are filling the upper

run the warp ribbon under the horizontal roller beneath the beam. This will
lower the feed level from the warping wheel.

I also have both the cross maker and the hooks from Dick, and look forward

There used to be a cheap motorized lazy susan available as I recall. If you
put three cones on a stand that rotates, lead the three yarns up to a large
screweye and then to any winder, you'll get a sort of home-grown three-ply
yarn for weft. Whether the twist is tight enough would depend upon the
difference between the speed of the winder and the rotation speed ( and
direction ) of the lazy susan. It would create some interesting colors of
weft !

Hi All,
Here is a question to the group.

I am about to weave a wool rug (sett 3 double working epi - heavy
hemp
warp). The threading is: 123 1234|234 2341|341 3412|412 4123| These
four blocks are repeated 3x. At the end I added another 1234 to get a
solid border warp way stripe on the right.

I am using dark red and black pick and pick aa bb with two shuttles.
I would like to make a dark red border around the entire rug. The
sides should take care of them self however the top and bottom would
be nice to be consistant on both sides(faces) -- red on one side and
black on the other so that both sides have a one color border or
frame. Is this possible?

Hi WeaveTech List-ers,

FYI-

Almost all AVL Looms automatically come with a tension system based on the
weighted warp beam that's being discussed here on the list.

The exception is the Rug Loom, because that type of loom requires a heavier
braking system which locks down for the tightest possible tension.

Happy Weaving,

Stacy

I have read the opposite; that bias strips actually fray more. Bias
cuts are the basis of "faux chenille", in which layers of fabric are
stitched together and then slashed (leaving the bottom layer intact).
Yes, they get soft & chenille-y in faux chenille, but they don't fray--the
threads don't peel off one by one as they do with fabric cut on the
straight grain.

I was told that thre exists a ball winder with which you can wind three
threads, and these threads get a little twist by winding.

Schacht just came out with it (actually they're made in England and they're
electric) and it looks very interesting. They also have come out with
electric ball winders (also from England). I talked with Barry Schacht
today who said they are sturdy enough to pull yarn off an umbrella swift.
They come in 3 sizes: 4oz ball, 8oz ball and 16oz ball. Barry said the 8oz
seems to be the best. He also has made a stand to hold several cones of
yarn and the winder. I think the 8oz was about $191 (something like that).
I asked him when they were going to have a strong electric cone winder and
he chuckled.

Recently I contacted the Textile Museum in Washington. I had seen in
their
newsletter that they were having a couple of showings of movies related to
weaving in Peru. I asked if these could be made available to purchase or
rent for those of us who have no way to get to the showings. This is the
answer I received:

Dear Ms. Connell:
The Museum Shop will carry John Cohen's film "Q'eros: The Shape of
Survival". If you are interested in a copy, please call or email the Shop
(202/667-0441, ext. 29/ shop@textilemuseum.org). It should be available in
late March.
Thanks for your suggestion of having the tapes available for non-local
members (of which we have a lot!) who can't make it to the showings. We
will
keep it in mind for future programs.
Best-
Julia Neubauer

I guess it pays to communicate an idea - you never know what will happen.

Hi Ruth,
Since you were the first to respond to my message, I would like to give
you
the opportunity to proceed with the purchase of this loom.
I can call the trucking company in the morning for a shipping estimate,
but
I need to have your zip code. I expect that it would be about $200, but I
would
not have a final weight until it has been packed. I can estimate the
shipping
cost by using the weight of a new loom the same size. He may however, use
more
packing material, giving the loom a heavier weight.

If you are still interested, please let me know. If the shipping
estimate
is acceptable to you, I will then contact Jim and make arrangements. If you
have
decided that you do not want the loom, do let me know so that I can offer it
to
the next person on my list.

Re: overhead beaters....

Bill Koepp <bgkoe@...>
 

I have two looms with overhead beaters and two that
are underslung. ........ You do have
to push them back.
Well..... As I mentioned, if you move the pivots so they're behind the
beater swords, the balance then dictates that the beater will have to hang
toward the shafts. The beater's balance is from its pivots and if they're in
the middle of the swords, then the beater hangs plumb; if the pivots are
slightly in front of the swords, the beater rests against the fell, if the
pivots are behind the swords ( looking from the bench ) the beater hangs
close to the shafts.
If you have a loom with a small weaving area or "Sweet Spot", then you're
restrained by the design and moving the pivots could result in a reed that
isn't vertical ( 90 degrees ) when it strikes the fell line. In this case
the loom design dictates to you, so all you can do here is add a stretchy
cord to each sword of the beater.
Loom design has to take everything into consideration; change one thing and
it changes another......

Happy Shuttling ! - Bill Koepp in Central California

Hi,
who can tell me what means sheda? The first letter is a A with a circle on
the top, so I think, it must be a Swedish word. I've found it in a sixty

Just wanted to say I have a Silver Needles Cone Winder
The Silver Needles Cone Winder is not strong enough to pull yarn off a skein
that is on an umbrella swift. It works fine taking yarn off a cone if you
want multiple cones.

Re: ball winder

Melby, E.
 

In the Netherlands and Germany there is an electric cone winder for twisting
yarn together. It will not make overtwisted yarn but you can twist together
as many or as few as you like. The maximum number of threads is about 12. It
is automatic; you start it, and can leave it running. To see a picture of
the cones delivering yarn, go to http://www.vennecolcoton.com/nland1.htm
then choose "producten", if you only see language options, producten is on
the Dutch page and means products. The Twister is on the first products
page. In the US you'll probably need a converter. BTW Vennecolcoton has some
really nice mercerized cotton. BTW Vennecolcoton has some nice mercerized

Re: Rag Weaving

I've used the Finnish poppana for table mats in the past. It's bias cut
cotton fabric strips about 1/2" wide, if I remember correctly. They made a
beautiful dense, velvety fabric that has been very sturdy. I also tried some
poly/cotton blend bias strips about 3/8" wide that made a great fabric but
break down easily.

I have a mat I use on my coffee table that, in place of constant washing, I
usually put in the dryer and toss for a few minutes to get the dust off. Over
the years, the weft at the edges has started to break apart. I figured it was
one of two things or both- the bias weft was too narrow letting the threads
pull apart easily or the polyester content affected how tightly the threads
of the fabric would hold. Whatever was the cause, I just thought I'd throw in
my experience. If I ever do it again, I'd go with 100% cotton and 1/2" wide
or more strips. I guess I'll be putting a binding on my mat.
