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.

This convenient Louet Electric Drumcarder has Fine Cloth with 45 teeth per square inch made of high grade plated steel wire. This carder has a powerful 3/4-horsepower motor and comes with a foot pedal for easy starting and stopping. This is the North American 110-volt version.

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.

The electric drumcarder is suitable for all fibres and lends itself to effortless, two hand feeding. The motor drives the large drum with a V-belt system, coupled to the enclosed gear system, at approximately 90 rpm. The motor has a thermal safety and the drums are covered with a transparent plastic protection cover for extra safety while carding. The electric carder stands on buffers and because of its weight of approximately 21kg (46 Lbs), it doesn't need to be clamped to a table. A doffer brush, doffer pin and instruction manual written by well known fibre artist Deb Menz are included

The gear ratio that drives the licker-in when you rotate the large drum 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. This surface speed ratio is 9:1 for the Electric drumcarder.

Dimensions: 49 x 30 x 45 cm (19.5" x 12" x 18").
