Strauch Drum Carder - Standard Width FINEST

Strauch Drum Carder - Standard Width FINEST

from 895.00

128 teeth FINE CARD, ideal for all types of fibers.  Oak Finish Wood Frame.

The Strauch flagship model is the Finest model 405-BA. This top-of-the-line model is unique and comes complete with the Brush Attachment and all accessories.

Having a chain as the drive mechanism provides a constant positive non-slipping action while carding and is far superior to belt drives.

The Finest has a 5:1 drum ratio. You obtain more carding action per revolution, hence quickly producing a beautiful, well blended batt. One to two passes are usually sufficient for a nice spinnable batt.

An important feature: The tall frame allows the handle to swing free of the table surface.

Designed to handle ALL fibers, including merino, mohair, llama, alpaca, cashmere, cotton blend, dog hair ......... on and on. Universal machine!


High quality, durable, electronically controlled motors that are made in the USA! All these machines have been extensively beta tested by some "heavy duty" fiber artists and they all have raved about the design, workmanship, and durability.

The dimensions of the motorized carders are the same as their manual counterparts.

There are switches on the circuit board to choose between 110v (domestic) and 230v (international).   Naturally, carders shipped to US customers are pre-set to 110v.  If you require international contact Elizabeth when ordering.

Manual drum carders can be motorized later but require shipping back to Strauch for upgrade.
