The Knuckle Saving Batt Picker from Strauch is a great accompaniment to your drum carder. This tool saves your knuckles from painful contact with the teeth of your drum carder while you are removing the batt from the large drum. It will not bend as does a knitting needle.
With your hand safely out of the way, use the bent tip of the tool to slide under the fiber, and lift it off at the break point. Taking small bites across the width of the drum, separate the batt to get it ready to pull off.
Used correctly, the batt picker also saves the drum and card cloth from becoming damaged.
Made of metal, 7.5″ long and 4″ wide at the hand grip. The tip working area is 1.5″ long.
Works with any brand of drum carder.
