This FINE version is the most popular, with teeth on the main drum set at 72 PPSI (points per square inch), which handles a wide range of fibres.

Use the 4:1 ratio to blend sliver, colours and different fibre types consistently into an open and airy batt. The new carder retains the adjustable drum clearance - allows you to set the teeth distance for total control of your fibre. 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.

Drum Carder, Ashford – Packer Brush
Drum Carder, Ashford – Packer Brush
Canadian orders only. We do not usually have this in stock at our store. Please allow 7 to 10 days for shipping.

Designed specifically to fit the fine or coarse-cloth Ashford 20cm (8-inch) Drum Carder. This kit is simple to install and doesn't require any special tools nor holes to be drilled. It has two metal holders that fit over the small drum, with a nylon-bristled brush that fits in notches and can be swung down to brush the large drum or moved up and out-of-the-way when taking off batts.

We use a fine-cloth Ashford Drum Carder here in our shop, and we love this brush! It helps you to pack more fibre onto the drum by smoothing it as you go. Ashford suggests it also reduces fly-away of finer or no-crimp fibres such as bamboo. Neither of us has any notable handyman skills but it was really quite simple to install.

NOTE: As of summer 2013 Ashford now includes this packer brush on all of their various sizes of drum carders.
