The Petite drum carder is a manual carder with a polyurethane drive belt. This carder is great for fiber artists with budget and/or space considerations who want a Strauch quality machine. As with all Strauch drum carders, the Petite comes with our Brush Attachment. The three working tools (Batt picker, doffer brush, dabber brush), as well as a table clamp, are included with each carder.
The Petite is an excellent choice for a mid-sized carder with full sized features. The Petite is slightly smaller, with 6 3/4" wide drums instead of the 8 1/4" wide drums on the singlewide chain drives. The carder produces a batt approximately 6 1/2" wide x 22" long. The Petite also has a 4:1 drum ratio.
The frame is made from high durability MDF material. The Petite frame is 16" long, 10" wide and 7" high.
An important feature: The tall frame allows the handle to easily clear the table surface.
This unit is equipped with the #05 (128 psi) fine carding cloth on the large drum and our unique Slicker-Licker cloth on the small drum. Designed to handle ALL fibers including merino, llama, alpaca, cashmere, dog hair and other exotics.
