The new, improved Gem II has better treadle angle, removable crank for easy belt changing, and a free traveling lazy kate. It may spin like a full-sized wheel, but it is lightweight (only 10 lb.) and packs down for easy carrying in a special zippered bag which comes with the wheel. It is double treadled like all Majacraft wheels, has a quick change flyer and requires no oiling. Comes with three bobbins and Scotch tension. Made from bamboo. Ratios: 4.9, 5.9, 8.6, 10.8, and 13:1.
