Clemes & Clemes Drum Carder
Standard (8" wide) - The proprietary 72 teeth per inch mill-style card clothing has sharpened and honed teeth as well as a specific knee height, angle and foundation. This allows the user to card nearly all fibers in only one pass - from wool to cotton to Suri alpaca and everything in between - without making any adjustments. The Standard is the only carder in the industry which sets the licker-in drum in eccentric bearings which are precisely adjusted for drum spacing before leaving the factory and do not need to be adjusted differently for each fiber. The main drum was the first in the fiber arts industry to be set in oil-impregnated bronze bearings that never need to be oiled. The stainless steel doffing strip keeps the card clothing from being damaged by doffing even after many years of carding. The Standard comes with a flicker for pre-teasing and cleaning the drums as well as a No Bend stainless steel doffer. The urethane drive belt usually lasts 10 years or more and is easily replaced without making any adjustments to the carder. Available in either Fine (72 TPI) or Coarse (56 TPI) configuration.
Mini-Standard (4" wide) - The Mini Standard has the versatility and durability of the full size Standard and is perfect for anyone with limited storage space, small projects, or anyone who enjoys carding on the go. Available in either Fine (72 TPI) or Coarse (56 TPI) configuration.
