The warp threads have ultimately to be wound or "beamed" on to a large roller, termed a weaver's beam, while the weft yarn has to be prepared in suitable shape for the shuttle.

WARPING, BEAMING AND DRESSING There are a few distinct methods of preparing warp threads on the weaver's beam.

The warp is made in the form of a chain on a warping mill, and when the completed chain is removed from the mill it is transferred on to the weaver's beam.

2. The warp is made in the form of a chain on a linking machine, and then beamed on to a weaver's beam.

28, and the full equipment demands the following four distinct kinds of apparatusa bank capable of holding approximately 300 spools, a frame for forming the weaver's lease and the beamer's lease, machine for drawing the threads from the spools in the bank and for measuring the length and marking the warp at predetermined intervals, and finally the actual machine which links the group of threads in the form of a chain.

The completed chain from the warping mill or the linking machine is now taken to the beaming frame, and after the threads, or rather the small groups of threads, in the pin lease have been disposed in a kind of coarse comb or reed, termed an veneer or radial, and arranged to occupy the desired width in the veneer, they are attached in some suitable way to the weaver's beam.

Instead of first making a warp or chain on the warping mill, or on the linking machine, and then beaming such warp on to the weaver's beam or loom beam as already described, two otherwise distinct processes of warping and beaming may be conducted simultaneously.
