What does an Axminster Weaver do?

Tends automatic looms simultaneously that weave pile yarn, filling yarn, and warp yarn material to produce carpets and rugs with various colored designs: Starts previously set up loom and observes weaving to detect breaks in yarn and weaving defects. Stops loom, pieces up broken ends, and removes filling yarn back to point where defect begins to correct imperfections. Pulls lever to actuate endless chain that moves spools of pile yarn into position for weaving.
