Comments about Weaving > Looms > Loom Parts & Accessories Tie-Up Kit for Laila 6-Shaft:
I used this kit , purchased here, to tie up a Toika Laila that was given to me. I had tons of problems getting this loom set up; many of them caused by ALL of the treadle cords being far too short. They are so short the long treadle cords were too short to use in place of the short cords. I also had to drill out the holes in my lamms and jacks to accommodate these pegs. I feel like the other style of pegs would have been more appropriate. If you need to tie up a Laila, get a roll of texsolv and the other style pegs. I finally got this thing hooked up with the additional 10 yards of texsolv that I bought "just in case", but I will need purchase a roll of texsolv to replace many of these cords because I had to combine two chords (pictured) to make one in many cases, which will not work long term because the connections won't fit through the holes when I need to move them. I wish I could return the kit but I don't want to have to start over. Very frustrating!
