The Petite is a manual drum carder with a polyurethane drive belt. This carder is part of Strauch’s product line specifically for fiber artists who have budget or space considerations but want Strauch quality.
The Petite is an excellent choice for a mid-sized carder with full-sized features. The Petite is slightly smaller (6½” wide drums) than the standard chain drive models. As with the chain drive models, the 05 fine cloth (128 psi) on the large drum and “Slicker-Licker” on the small drum is standard.
Special tools included with each Petite are:
* The popular Knuckle-Saving-Batt-Picker, an invaluable tool for removing the batt without damage to the equipment or the user.
* Doffer/Cleaner Brush to thoroughly and easily clean any residual fibers from the carding drum.
* A small cleaner/dabber brush for use on the licker drum.
* Table clamps to secure the carder to the work surface.
The fabulous Brush Attachment now comes standard on all Strauch carders.
