I am beginning to feel assured that we will get no more snow, but I am not yet secure in that notion. After all, this is Minnesota, and here we are always waiting for that 'other shoe to drop' when it comes to the weather. In other words, if it is nice today, it will probably be either really hot and muggy tomorrow, or it will snow and sleet tomorrow. It has happened that way long enough that people in this state are always waiting for the bad news. We have been trained by the weather to be suspicious of a nice day and anticipating that it won't last long.
But even so, I am in good spirits! I am in count-down mode to make a road trip to Chicago to pick up a another AVL loom.
This is the loom waiting for me in Chicago.
Newer flybox shuttle mechanism.
It will take some thinking to get that one to work, but I have confidence . . . .
The heart of the mechanical dobby.
The counterweights for the auto cloth advance.
