The Ashford Fine Drum Carder has 72 teeth per inch. It comes standard with packing brush! This new, improved model has two ratios for even more flexibility and control when carding and blending:
Use the 6:1 ratio to prepare your fleece. The controlled intake and carding will produce a smooth even batt ready for blending, spinning or felting.
Use the 4:1 ratio to blend sliver, colors and different fiber types consistently into an open and airy batt.
The new carder retains the adjustable drum clearance – allows you to set the teeth distance for total control of your fiber. All nylon bearings ensure it is light and easy to turn. The card cloth has wire teeth with a special protective coating and a flexible rubber backing for long life. The carder is strong and robust with the body made from Silver Beech hardwood. The carder has rubber feet to prevent it slipping. Card 2 oz batts quickly and efficiently. New “quick-and-easy-to-remove” handle makes storing and traveling with the carder a breeze! Batt size 22 inches x 9 inches. It comes assembled and lacquered, ready to use. Awl/doffer, 2 clamps, cleaner brush, and carding instructions are included. Weighs only 11 lb.
