If you card fibers occasionally or card for small projects, this is the carder for you. It has the same carding cloth and solid construction as the Standard Drumcarder, but is only 4" wide. It is perfect to use to card fibers for small projects like for socks, hats and scarves. You can produce a 4" wide batt that can be spun from when you remove the batt from the carder. The batt that is created is the size of a commercial roving. You can also thoroughly blend colors on this model. It is a great introduction to the world of drum carding. Specifications: - Drum is 4" (10 cm) wide and 10 (26.5 cm) in diameter - Surface speed ratio is 12:1 - Teeth are spaced at 72 teeth/sq inch - Teeth are 3/8" deep (11 mm) - Card approximately ounce (15 grams) per batt - Weight 13 pounds (6 kg) - Carding teeth flexible - No pre-teasing needed -Table Clamps, Doffer Brush and Doffer Pin included An instruction manual written by well known author and fiber artist Deb Menz is included with all drumcarders. The Louet Drumcarders are made of laminated birch and have a hard white coating. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Lout carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. The gearbox is enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system. Please note: This is a special order item and may take 4 weeks or more to arrive, depending on availability.
