Rapier Loom

I am in the process of trying to build a working Rapier Loom. The video below shows the Rapier Loom threaded and sequenced, nearly finished, but now need to solve how to feed the weft thread to the rapier ‘needle’ on each stroke

A video of this model can be seen further down the page.

Tip - You may find it better to view the pictures in 'full screen' mode - For most browsers F11 will toggle this on and off.

The video can go full screen by pressing the bottom right hand icon on the video display window.
