KATIE LEASE STICKS: (Sold individually or by the pair - save shipping by buying a pair - same ship cost as singles): Often used in pairs, lease sticks are used to hold the warp cross and they are indispensable when needing to repairing broken ends quickly and efficiently - Having the lease always at the ready greatly simplifies the process and lessens the frustration of stopping to make repairs. These can be used on any model loom up to their own length measurement in weaving width. So a 27" lease stick would typically be used on a loom with 27" or less in weaving width and the 39" on any loom with a weaving width of 39" or less. A smooth rounded or beveled edge allows them to be slipped effortlessly through your shed. As an example of simplistic efficiency - By slipping two of these handy lightweight sticks through the opening of the lease cross made while winding a warp, and tying the ends of the sticks together, all the warp ends stay perfectly in order throughout the process of dressing the loom. After beaming the warp, with the warp still under tension, you can tie the back lease stick to the back beam. Then, when threading the heddles, simply take each thread in order by going to the cross in between the two lease sticks and picking up the next thread. Lease sticks separate the threads in a way that clearly shows which thread is next. Many weavers always weave with the lease sticks in and don’t remove them until the end of the warp comes over the back beam. Lease sticks are ESPECIALLY helpful if you're working with a warp in less than good condition - perhaps some twists or loose ends....
