High quality reliable drum carders complete with fitted packer, cleaning bush and doffer!
The Ashford drum carder is a robust and well made from Silver Beech hardwood. It has two ratios for flexibility and control when carding and blending. Use the 6:1 ratio to prepare your fleece and the controlled intake will produce a smooth even batt ready for blending, spinning or felting. Use the 4:1 ratio to blend wool top, colours and different fibre types consistently into an open and airy batt. You can also adjust the drum clearance / teeth distance for even more control of your fibre. Fitted with all nylon bearings ensure it is light and easy to turn and rubber feet to prevent slipping.
The card cloth has wire teeth with a special protective coating and a flexible rubber backing for long life. This carder is available factory fitted with a choice of 3 cloth grades - 36 point (coarse), 72 point (standard) or 120 point (superfine).
