Drum Carder, Louet - Standard


CUSTOM ORDER PRODUCT: please allow 2 to 4 weeks for delivery. The available quantity shows to allow our shopping cart to accept orders and does not reflect our current on-hand inventory.

The Standard drumcarder has an extra fine cloth (72 teeth per square inch). The advantage of this extra fine cloth is that you can perfectly card very fine fibres. This carder includes a doffer brush, doffer pin and two table clamps to clamp it onto a sturdy table as well as an instruction manual written by well known author and fiber artist Deb Menz.

Louet Drumcarders are made of laminated birch and have a hard white coating. The drums of this carder are 19cm (7-1/2") wide. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louet carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. All gearboxes (except for the Elite drumcarder) are enclosed to prevent fibres from entering the gear system.

For drumcarders it is common to mention the gear ratio that drives the licker-in when you rotate the large drum. For this drumcarder it is 3.8:1. However, what really counts for carding is the ratio of the surface speed of both drums. You get this by multiplying the gear ratio with the ratio of the diameters of the large drum and the licker-in, therefore, the surface speed ratio is 12:1 for the Standard drumcarder.
