If I taught a workshop/seminars at ANWG '19 would you be interested?

Minor Surgery


Surgical tools to fix...


Cables wear out, yes, they do.  

We invested in the correct size plastic coated airline cable, bought by the yard at a local wire rope supplier and the tool for cutting it/compressing the knurls.  The loop broke on shaft 14 so one end, dropping the shaft suddenly.  Fortunately the warp isn't 'tender' and no warp ends broke.  From break to fix was about 30 minutes...

I hate it when things suddenly go Ping! Glad this one was easy enough to put back.

The tool to crimp the knurls and cut the wire wasn't cheap, but instead of waiting days for replacement cables, it is an easy matter to fix it ourselves and then I can carry on. Wove this morning and have about 3 yards left to weave. Should come off the loom tomorrow - I'm busy the rest of the afternoon and evening. :-/
