FREE SHIPPING within Canada! Canadian orders only. We have this item shipped directly from the Ashford Canada warehouse, generally within one or two business days. We also often have this in stock at our store.
The wider version of Ashford’s classic Fine Drum Carder, featuring a 12-inch (30cm) carding drum for those that do a lot of carding. Teeth on the main drum are set at 72 PPSI (points per square inch), which handles a wide range of fibres. Makes batts up to around 113 grams (4 oz).
Features two carding ratios: 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 already-prepared top/roving and different fibre types consistently into an open and airy batt.
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. The carder has rubber feet as well as two clamps to prevent it from slipping, and includes a packer brush. Comes assembled and lacquered ready to use. A short Awl/doffer (4 inches) and carding instructions are included. Carder weight only 8.4 kg (18.5 Lbs).
