Loose or broken warp threads

If you find you have a loose warp thread, fill a 35mm film canister with baking beans and tie it to the warp thread to act as a weight. To weight a floating selvedge, wrap the thread around the canister then trap it under the lid to stop it unravelling.

A pair of hemostats can be used in the same way; they just clip right on.
