Spool rack as a trapeze
DH modified my spool rack so I can use it as a trapeze. I had used on the the Glimakra loom with a small warp and it worked. But last night with the table loom it was another story. Part of the problem was that the loom kept sliding and the rack tipping over. I looked at Katy's book (Warp with a Trapeze and Dance with your Loom).
I was missing the clamps! G solved the problem as you can see in this picture.
A 10 yds warp is now on, looks good. I sure hope the tension is even and it does not give me problems. I used a dumbell to weigh the warp, 3 lbs was enough for a 10 inch wide warp. The only thing that I need yet to solve is how to attach the dumbell to the warp. I have tried craft rings, and all kinds of things. I think the ultimate solution is a 5 inch S hook. I have not been able to find one. So if anyone knows where I can get them, please let me know.
