<< Hi! I understand that you are the USA Leclerc advice person (you might
suggest to the Leclerc web person to change advise to advice....:) )>>
Thanks for picking that up. Until they are spotted we hope entries of that
type simply add a French flavor to the page<G> but we would rather get it
right so thanks again.
<< I have a 36-inch Artisat jack loom that is a lot rickety, but I manage.
Sometimes the bands of color that I weave lose their parallelism and I'm not
sure whether it's the way I'm warping or something slipping in the tension
The Artisat is a fully foldable Loom(front and back) and as a consequence,
the Frame has a number of joints that a rigid Frame type Loom does not have.
When weaving, these joints have to be tightened regularly or the Frame will
tend to get pretty wobbly. Unless you need to fold and unfold on a daily
basis, I would recommend you tighten right down on the fasteners at the
joints. They will be more difficult to loosen when you want to fold, but the
Frame will be more rigid.
<<Also, those brown plastic separators attached to the loom that separate the
harnesses have mostly broken off. Do you have replacements? How can I get them
out and replace them with new, maybe stronger, separators?>>
We do have replacements but to my knowledge they are the same as the
original equipment. I will discuss with Francois looking at a replacement for
The separators are simply pressed in. If there is enough of the broken
separator protruding to grip with a pair of pliers, they should come out with
a little twist. If not , drill a small hole and remove with an E-Z out.
Sometimes just drilling the hole will spin them out.
Thanks for responding to the Leclerc Q&A page, and have a good day.
