Strauch Petite Drum Carder

A belt-driven 6.5" drum carder, perfect for the handspinner who does not card large amounts. Carder has an MDF frame with oak grain and maple cross-members. Small drum is adjustable and sports "slicker-licker" cloth. Carding cloth is extra fine (128 tpi) to handle fine, medium and coarse fibers. Comes with a sliding in-feed tray. Complete with Knuckle-Saver-Batt-Picker, doffer brush, dabber brush and table clamp.

Note: this model cannot be motorized because it is a light duty machine and not constructed to withstand the stresses imparted by a motor.

Completely assembled with brush attachment.

The Petite is the perfect carder for a hobby Fiber Arts Enthusiast. It is very sturdy and compact making it easy to store when not in use. It has a generously sized drum for the size of the carder to make a nice sized batt. My Petite has handled every fiber I've thrown at it including; Jacob, Merino, Romney, Corridale, Tunis, bamboo, silk, glitz, and more. I‰Ûªve done processing of fleeces, blending fiber types, and color blending on my Petite. I love how it does not have to sit at the edge of a table because the handle does not swing down lower than the carder so I can use it anywhere at home, just not on a specialized work surface. That flexibility is a must as I need my fiber arts equipment to be portable and versatile!
