    Hey I figured out part of this after a lot of head scratching….Next I’m just going to try and put a short narrow warp on and see if I can’t figure out things as I go along.
    I’ll check back with better questions after this trial.

    It was listed on The Central Pennsylvania Guild of Handweavers classified page.

    I have just purchased a 40″ 16 shaft side tie up in oak made in 1986. The previous owner has had it since then. Her husband, George Starzmann, built it to Jim Ahrens plans and with his help. They were neighbors in California. Everything was disassembled except for the side frames. I’m excited but realize it will be a project to get together and weaving but it should be more within my skill-set than trying to build one from scratch. After seeing this loom I’m really impressed with it’s beauty. It’s nice and heavy and has a built in seat so I’m thinking it won’t be walking across the room. I’ll post some photos when I get putting it together.

    Thanks Cindy. I go check it out. I was hoping to find manuals of the pre-AVL looms but maybe this will be the ticket.

    If the threads aren’t stripped out you might be able to use a fender washer between the loom and the handle to give it more surface area to bear on. Hard to really say without seeing it.
