Ashford Drum Carder - Fine 72 pts/in
The Ashford drum carder has two ratios for even more flexibility and control when carding and blending:
Use the 6:1 ratio to prepare your fleece. The controlled intake and carding will produce a smooth even batt ready for blending, spinning or felting.
Use the 4:1 ratio to blend sliver, colors and different fiber types consistently into an open and airy batt.
The carder retains the adjustable drum clearance - allows you to set the teeth distance for total control of your fiber. Includes the packer brush to smooth control and pack more fiber onto the large drum. All nylon bearings ensure it is light and easy to turn. The card cloth has wire teeth with a special protective coating and a flexible rubber backing for long life. The carder is strong and robust with the body made from silver beech hardwood. The carder has rubber feet to prevent it slipping. Card 50 gm (2oz ) batt quickly and efficiently. It comes assembled and lacquered ready to use. Awl/doffer, 2 clamps and carding instructions are included. Batt size 55cm x 23cm (22" x 9")- Weight only 5kg (11lb).
