NOTES from Schacht:

  • It is easiest to set up the variable dent reed at your loom.
  • The weaving width of the variable dent reed is about 1⁄4" narrower than a regular reed of similar width.
  • Reed sections do not need to completely fill all of the available space in the reed frame. To weave at less than full width, secure reed sections with heddle retainer rings.
  • To weave at full width, you may need to remove the plastic spacers from the frame posts prior to re-assembly
