STANDARD DRUM CARDER

 

Our most inexpensive manual basic carder, available in all types of cloth. Frame is built from unfinished hemlock wood, we can add a FINISH for $50. Produces a 9"x22" batt. Has a poly belt for a smooth and quiet operation. Frame is 12" wide and 24" long and total height is 9" and weighs 10 pounds. Copper bushings are inserted for longevity of the carder. The teeth on our cloth are a hardened and highly tempered steel wire that is remarkable for its longevity and uniformity and they are 1/2" long. The ratio between the licker and the swift are 5:1. Interchangeable drums are available and are easily switched out with a screwdriver. Brush attachment, clamps and doffer are sold separately. The licker in drum is always a coarser cloth than the swift, example: a fine cloth carder 120tpi has a 90tpi licker in drum. For upgrading to motorized we will buy back your manual carder for a $250 credit towards the motorized carder. Comes with a limited lifetime warranty. FREE SHIPPING in the U.S.
