Louet Delta Loom Problem Resolved!

I am very happy to say that today, I received new side bars for my Louet Delta Loom. It has been a bit of a wait, but they came from Holland and that just takes time. We installed them as soon as we returned from the first half of our vacation, and they do not pop off the side bolts which support them, which was the problem with the original side bars. Although the angle of the notch in the side bars is the same as the original ones (something that several of us were convinced was totally wrong), the new ones are cut with a tighter fit over the bolts. The popping off was mostly on the left side (facing the loom). We placed the more snug of the two bars on that side. Voila!

I have now let the loom sit for awhile with its new side bars installed. There has been no spontaneous popping off! No more dangling side bars! And with the warp under tension, no popping off! No more loss of stability & tension while trying to weave! And all without cardboard, velcro, or duct tape! Halleluia Bob I am happy now. Thank you, Nancy (at Northwest Handspun Yarns in Bellingham) for your effective communication with Louet Co. And thank you, Jan, at Louet Co.

We are now off for the second half of our vacation - Black Sheep Gathering in Oregon. :-)))))))
