We're almost there.....


The Megado loom has been built since Friday. We've been tweaking a few of the final steps to call it complete. I think the most miserable step was adding the heddles to the 32 harnesses. Awkward both in adding them and positioning yourself to get them on the harnesses. The harnesses are so closely spaced that it made the job - just plain difficult. Jim disconnected the harnesses while I added them.

My job today is to separate all of the chunks of heddles and spread them on the harness bars.

Jim is attaching the sectional dividers on the sectional warp beam.

Louet Megado: Day 1 - Opening Boxes and Separating Parts



This box contains the fully assembled 32 harness castle.

It looks like I'll be spending some time adding all of the heddles.

These boxes contain the remaining pieces of the loom.

Jim had enough time to build the bench before he had to leave for work.
