For those who need a larger production size machine to card their fine fibers, a Finest doublewide model 405×2-BA is a great choice. Part of the flagship Finest model series, this top-of-the-line model has drums twice as wide as the regular Finest.
Having a chain as the drive mechanism provides a constant positive non-slipping action while carding and is far superior to belt drives.
The Finest has a 5:1 drum ratio. You obtain more carding action per revolution, hence quickly producing a beautiful, well blended batt. One to two passes are usually sufficient for a nice spinnable batt.
An important feature: The tall frame allows the handle to swing free of the table surface.
Designed to handle ALL fibers, including merino, angora, llama, alpaca, cashmere, cotton blend, dog hair ……… on and on. A truly universal machine!
