I’m buying a used four shaft loom. Can I add four shafts to it?

Looking down at the loom from above, if the loom has empty channels in the castle, then you can add four shafts. If there are no empty channels, then you cannot add shafts. A four shaft loom (without the empty channels) cannot be converted to an eight shaft loom.
