What are the possible arms for the break in the jig? I'm lacking a jig textbook so I wasn't able to check the arms for myself. Thanks!

I posted a very comprehensive reply, with pictures of the relevant pages and everything, but my Internet stopped working!

The upshot is, there are no set arms for any steps, let alone the breaks. The book says these are some of the arm movements, but as long as it fits with the step, it's up to teachers and dancers to work it out for themselves, according to what works best for the step and the dancer.
