The "Anything but Lazy Kate" has an extensive list of features that spinners will not find anywhere else. First, it employs the tilt-back design for using gravity to provide a certain amount of tension on the bobbins. What makes our tilt-back design unique is that we have infinite adjustability of the tilt angle. The user can adjust it from approx. 10 to 45 degrees and everywhere in between. We accomplish this by means of a custom designed lid bracket that is controlled by an adjustable knob. We also use our tensioning post design that we developed for our ball winders and skein-winders. Each bobbin has it own adjustable yarn guide with a 2.5cm diameter wireform which is perfect for art yarns. This means that each bobbin can be independently tensioned by means of the adjustable tension guide. But wait, there's more! We also provide our standard tension cord system (not pictured above) which is used on our Jumbo Lazy Kate. The tensioning cord is controlled by a peg. The cord runs around the bobbins and provides even tension on all three bobbins simultaneously. Three forms of tensioning and yarn control in one Kate! Unheard of, until now! Our dovetailed hardwood box even stores all of the guides, rods, peg, and knobs inside. The knob that adjusts the tilt mechanism also locks the box lid down so that everything remains intact. It even includes a handle. The unit can hold three 13cm + diameter bobbins at the same time. In fact, there is 15cm between each bobbin rod so we provide extra room for those overloaded bobbins. Our rods are 20cm tall so the unit can fit any bobbin and even 18cm cones!
