SPINNING: Drum Carders

If you are serious about spinning wool from your fleece, a Drum Carder is not a luxury: itís the tool that makes your time productive. Youíll spin a more even yarn faster with drum-carded fiber. Also makes batts for felting.

The Mark V is not being made as of Spring 2014. We hope that it will be back before too long.

The Mark V is solid equipment, well-supported, at a competitive price. Action is adjustable (rarely needed, but essential). Comes with clamps and doffer. The fiber belt drive is very sure: 8:1 carding ratio, 7¼" diameter drum, 72 teeth/inch, total carding area is 168 square inches. Batts run about an ounce. Comes with instruction booklet. Shipping weight 17 LB. Excluded from Volume Discount Schedule.

Also a fine drum carder. Enclosed gears are non-slipping and require no further lubrication. The extra-long (½"), high-grade plated wire teeth are very flexible. The drum is 7½" across, 10" diameter. Drum size and tooth length allow this carder to produce extra-long and thick batts. The Classic (formerly the one with fine cloth) has 46 teeth/square inch. The Standard has 72 teeth/square inch. Two table clamps and cleaning brush included, shipping weight is 17 LB. Excluded from Volume Discount Schedule.
