My present invention has reference to looms in which the heddles, which receive and shed the selvage-threads, are operated independent and separate mechanism from that which operates the harnesses or heddles, which shed the warp threads which form the body of the web, The nature of my invention consists in the combination, with independent mechanism for operating the heddles, which receive and shed the selvage-threads, as above stated, of mechanism for detaching the selvage-heddle-operating mechanism from the running part of the loom.
