Ashford Drum Carder
Update, April 6, 2020: Ashford is in mandatory shutdown to contain the spread of COVID-19 in New Zealand, but has resumed shipping a couple of times per week. All items that are drop-shipped (including this one) will take longer than Ashford's usual one-week shipping. If you are interested in ordering, or have questions about this item, please contact us. Thank you!
We have one Fine Drumcarder in stock; Superfine Carder would be drop-shipped.
Card and blend fibers and colors quickly and efficiently.
This new, improved model 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.
Adjustable drum clearance - allows you to set the teeth distance for total control of your fiber. 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 50gm (2oz) batts (about 8" wide) quickly and efficiently. It comes assembled and lacquered ready to use.
