Strauch Petite Drum Carder
The Strauch Petite Drum Carder is a manual drum 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 Petite is an excellent choice for a mid-sized carder with full sized features. The Petite is slightly smaller, with 6¾” wide drums instead of the 8¼” wide drums on the singlewide chain drives. The carder produces a batt approximately 6½” wide x 22″ long. The Petite also has a 4:1 drum ratio.
The Strauch Petite Drum Carder 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 swing freely of the table surface.
The Strauch Petite Drum Carder 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 blend, dog hair and other exotics.
Special tools included with each carder are:
The popular Knuckle-Saving-Batt-Pick, an invaluable tool for removing the batt without damage to the equipment or the user.
A Doffer/Cleaner Brush to thoroughly and easily clean any residual fibers from the carding drum.
A small cleaner/dabber brush for use on the licker drum.
A table clamp to secure the carder to the work surface.
