Hi Giovanna.  Thank you for creating this interesting project.  I have never used a takadai before so this is my first venture into takadai braids.  I am having difficulty keeping track of which tama is which and have created a mess twice and had to redo the set up.  I thin my ‘manual dexterity’ is lacking!  So…..for better or worse I decided to innovate.  I made what I believe is called a sword and use it to create a space to slide the bobbin through  I have tightened the best I can.  Before I continue on please let me know if the set up/point of braiding looks correct.  Thank you!

(I think I may have had an easier time on the baby takadai!)
