When you assemble your 10″ or 15″ Cricket Loom, you’ll attach the front beam and back beam with 1-1/2″ Phillips truss head sheet metal screws. If you find this step difficult, try the following:
- Make sure you’re using a #2 Phillips screwdriver. We recommend using a screwdriver or ratchet screwdriver, rather than a power tool.
- If you’ve already tried to attach the beam and your screwdriver has chewed up the screw heads, protect your fingers from cuts: use an emery board to smooth down the rough spots on the screw head.
- Rub the pointed ends and the shafts of the screws on a bar of soap.
