This big & bad drum carder is for serious fiber carding and batt production. Extra Wide and Extra Large Drum Carders is 12" wide and combine a large 10" diameter drum for huge carding capacity that makes a a batt of 12 by 30 inches. Comes with Extra Fine Carding Cloth. The intermeshing teeth work for great performance, allowing you to card fibers without pre-teasing. It literally "eats from your hand".
Louet Carders have enclosed gearboxes that assures smooth carding operation, while the extra high, flexible, teeth allow for a heavier batt than other drum carders as well as a high carding efficiency. Since the Louet drum carder uses a gear drive, there is no adjustment necessary, and no belts to slip or wear out.
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 Lou?t carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. All gearboxes (except on the Elite) are enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system.
For drumcarders it is common to mention the gear ratio that drives the licker-in when you rotate the large drum. However, what really counts for carding is the ratio of the surface speed of both drums, because the difference of surface speed does the carding. You get this surface speed ratio by multiplying the gear ratio with the ratio of the diameters of the large drum and the licker-in.
