Hi Everyone 

You are going to need 2 rods and cord if you want to stop the bowing of the rod 

rod for tie on            -------------------
cord lacing                 /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/]  This is the best I can do for example.
Rod in hem of apron -------------------

Keep Weaving

It is true that the tensile strength is higher (weight for weight) , but the feature which matters is the bending modulus (ie stiffness) where steel wins. 

 

Bamboo is also weak across the nodes, the joining two growth points where it breaks in bending.

Interesting!
May I ask why you use the combo instead of one or the other?
Thanks!

I've used a metal tube with a wooden dowel inside of it and it works well.

Re: rods for warping #weaving

Ian Bowers
 

Metal rods are far stiffer than wood and less likely to break catastrophically, using tube increases the strength/weight ratio.  Certainly it makes sense to ensure the width of the fabric is lashed and not depend just on the ends.

I'm not a big fan of metal rods. I use sticks made from hard wood. One thing that would prevent the bending is only lash the width of the warp, not the entire length of the warp. That advice came from Jane Patrick (Schacht-Spindle owner)

Jane,
I use 1/4" or 3/8" cold rolled steel available from most welding shops.  The 'cold rolled' form rusts less, and to further prevent that, I wipe it down thoroughly and coat it with paste wax.  The rod will deflect a bit with narrower warps but will return to its original form when the tension is removed.   

That rod is then lashed to the apron rod or inserted directly onto a string apron depending on the loom.

Thick walled steel tubing will give a higher ‘strength to weight’ ratio.  Investigate what is available at a nearby steel stock-holder.

Subject: [weavetech] rods for warping #weaving

 

I like to use rods for lashing the warp to the warp beam and weaving headings to lash to the cloth beam. I'm currently using a couple of flat narrow wood sticks in the heading and they are bowing under tension. I've also used wood dowels in the past.

I'd like to get flat metal rods, but not seeing rods with the right dimensions at my local hardware store that are not aluminum. I'm concerned aluminum would bend under tension.

Do you have suggestions for narrow, unbending rods?

Re: Wave Stick

Mary Underwood
 

I have Japanese fabric (purchased at my first Convergence — 2000 in Cincinnati) from Kasurki. It is woven by a Japanese master weaver and national treasure. His ondulé ‘wave stick’ was his fingernails, which were filed in such a way that he created small undulating patterns in very fine silk. The weaving takes your breath away. Assuming anyone has fingernails left after this week, something interesting to try….

Excellent resource for weaving design

Deborah Briggs
 

I have been working my way through a new book just published by Master Weaver Janet Phillips called "Exploring Woven Fabrics".

All I can say is WOW. This book is for those that already have some basic knowledge of weaving but want to take their woven designs to the next level. Really well worth having as part of your weaving library resources.

I have a PDF course on weaving text vertically and diagonally. The diagonal method is a close to, but not exactly the same as Alice Schlein’s in The Liftplan Connection.

Don't wait until the last moment to register for the 3D shaft weaving Art Exhibition.
It's free and all you need is a good photo of your artwork.
Deadline November 15, 2020

Hi,
 
Lala de Dios and me propose to all shaft weavers to participate to a virtual 3D art exhibition.
We want to promote the shaft weaving as a medium of an art in its own right.
In fact, shaft weaving is often the poor relation of textile art.
 
The deadline is very close ( November 15th ) because we are thinking of opening this exhibition on December 1, 2020.
We are volunteers and this exhibition will be completely free
 
This exhibition will be based on the one I have already done for myself ; click on this link to see what kind of exhibition it will be : https://oliviermasson.art/modules/om_toggleshowprices/VirtualExhibition/three.js-master/examples/VisitVirtualExhibition.html

Re: Wave Stick

Louise Yale
 

Thanks to Sally O and everyone for your comments re: wave sticks.

Mine is still somewhere between KY and NorCal.

I am clearing a loom.

Louise

I received a few PM's about this topic (thanks Margaret & Penny) that
activated a few dormant neurons!

Check out Handwoven Issue #169, March/April 2014, page 64, for an article
by Suzi Ballenger, "Mizugoromo-Inspired Cloth with a Supplemental Beater."
In the article she addresses how the threads are kept from migrating along
with some historical background, and the tool she invented to reproduce
the technique on her own loom.

Next, I went to Suzi's website (RealFibers.com) and I see that she still
sells her Supplemental Beater.

So, now I am looking forward to seeing some woven samples!
