Adding a second lease bar to your warping mill will allow you to have a cross at each end of your warp.
The way we generally use of this second lease bar in our studio is to wind only half of the width of a symmetrical warp with a lot of tedious color changes. The cross at the top of the mill belongs to one half of the warp, and the cross at the bottom of the mill belongs to the other half. This saves an a lot of time and tedium when winding any symmetrical warp that has multiple color changes. It is also a good way to use up odd bits of leftover colors: you can design directly on the warping mill, and have a symmetrical design.
