Re: smoothing wood edges

Elisa Eiger
 

Use very fine sandpaper; you can further smooth with fine steel wool (0 or 00). Ultrafine steel wool (like 0000) won't do much; in fact, that's the size you use for ever so slightly roughening surfaces between successive coats of tung oil when finishing wood.

A possible cheat with materials often readily to hand is to use the FINE side of an emery board (the finer light-colored side, not the coarser red side). The flat green sort of dishwashing/scouring pads also work.

I like Howard's Feed-and-Wax (readily findable at Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and similar) and Wood Beams (order from Googles Unlimited online) for touching up the finish on looms and spindles and for regular maintenance.  (For more major incidents, Howard's Restor-a-Finish is good stuff.)(NAYY, just tend to buy used looms...and alsohave been known to advance my warp without remembering to take off the temple.)

It might be a good idea to figure out what's causing the burrs on your spindles and looms, and seeing if it's something preventable.

Hope this helps!

Is the base of the beater in the back position?  After about 20 years I figured it out that it needs to be there.  You could also add some weight to the take up to make the whole track of the cloth firmer.

While in New Zealand in Nov. I bought some wood finish made of beeswax and
essential oils - yesterday, I used Murphy's Oil Soap on a few loom parts
and my oldest shuttles. Then I took find sandpaper to remove the burrs.
After applying a thin coat of this beeswax product and buffing, everything
feels new, smooth and lovely.

smoothing wood edges

Louise Yale
 

This is about the edge on a spinning spindle but I know other edges on one of my looms have the same issue.

Tiny burs have shown up on the edges.

Should I use very fine sandpaper to smooth them away or very fine steel wool? Something else?

The woods are Maple.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have the pressure roller in place? I frequently weave with Tencel and have no problems with grip provided pressure roller is engaged.

Hi,
I have a long warp on for scarves - tencel 8/2, 24 epi.  I'm having trouble getting the auto-advance to the correct spot for about 24 ppi.  I wove 2 scarves which ended up about 40 ppi, and are a bit stiff, but ok once wet-finished.  The third one I managed to get set for around 23 ppi, YAY!!  But now the fourth scarf is not cooperating.  It seems to be slipping on the sandpaper beam, even tho I've got a rather tight tension on it.  No matter how I set the auto-advance, I'm getting 44 ppi.  I have manually moved it both forward and back to make sure nothing is caught where it shouldn't be.  I've checked that the cloth beam DOES take up when the cloth comes down, and it works.  If it hadn't worked fine for the one warp, I'd think the tencel was just too slick for the sandpaper beam to hold it.  Would it be a good idea to sort of 'clean' the sandpaper with a brush in case there are fibers embedded that I'm not seeing?  Suggestions, please! And thanks!
