Majacraft offers two styles of lazy kates, tensioned and the untensioned travel kate. We hand craft them using New Zealand Rimu. The tensioned kates use the same components as the scotch tension systems on the wheels so they are simple and familiar to use. The folding feet let you store the lazy kate in a smaller space and have a special mechanism to make sure the remain smooth and firm to use throughout their life. Each lazy kate has been laser engraved with the Majacraft logo.
We use a polymer bearing to control the friction on the tension knob. This allows for more consistent tension adjustment and better control of the tension on your bobbins.
