HATTERSLEY LOOM CLUB
A non-profit making club for
owners of Hattersley Looms - specifically the Hattersley Domestic
User Manual & FAQs
We are currently
in the process of writing an on-line user manual to help members with all
the many issues of setting up and fine tuning a Hattersley Domestic Loom.
We hope to have a first draft live by mid March 07.
Problem: I have bars in the weft of the cloth - picks group tighly
together and then get wide apart and then close up again as I weave - what
is causing this?
There can be two main causes of this problem
relating to the let-off or take-up:
Beam Let off at the back of the loom
- Craven/weighted let off - you might have
got a splash of oil on the let grip wheels - try cleaning them with meths or
_ Is the let off a geared one on the back - if your
paul on the back release mechanism is worn it will skip a couple of teeth
every now and again. Get the paul reground/adjusted to let off consistently.
Take-up at the front of the loom
- Check that the paul at the front of the loom on
the take up is consistently picking teeth - if it is worn it may be missing
teeth occasionally and therefore producing weft bars.
