Employs a tilt-back design for using gravity to provide a certain amount of tension on the bobbins. What makes this tilt-back design unique is that the infinite adjustability of the tilt angle. The user can adjust it from zero to 45 degrees and everywhere in between accomplished by means of a custom designed lid bracket that is controlled by a adjustable knob.
Also used is a tensioning post design. Each bobbin has it own adjustable yarn guide with a 1" diameter wire-form which is perfect for art yarns. This means that each bobbin can be independently tensioned by means of the adjustable tension guide.
Also provided is a standard tension cord system (not pictured). 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!
The dovetailed hardwood box 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. Includes a handle for easy transport.
The unit can hold three 5"+ diameter bobbins at the same time. There is 6" between each rod provides extra room for those overloaded bobbins. The rods are 8" tall so the unit can fit any bobbin and even 7" cones!
