Strauch "405x2" "Double Wide, Chain Drive, "Finest"


"Finest" double wide-chain drive

For those who need a larger production rate, a "Finest double wide" (also known as the Model 405x2) is available. Part of the flagship "Finest" model series, this top of the line model is unique and comes complete with all available features including the Brush Attachment.

This is also a chain drive carder and has a pulley attached to the crank so that the carder can be motorized by the end user.

The wood frame is ash with a warm honey-oak finish. The large drum on the double wide models is 15" wide, with the same 7" diameter as the standard carder and produces a batt approximately 14" wide x 22" long. Overall dimensions are 18-1/2" wide x 24" long. The frame is 6" high. An important feature: Since the swing of the handle clears the table surface, the carder can be placed anywhere on the work surface.

This unit is equipped with the #05 (128 psi) card cloth and "Slicker-Licker" (SL). The 6" high frame permits a larger sprocket on the small drum. This makes a 5:1 ratio between the drums, which allows more carding action per revolution. This 5:1 ratio allows for minimal turning of the large drum to produce an excellent, well blended batt; 2-3 passes are sufficient.

Special tools included with each "Finest double wide" are:

  • * The popular Knuckle-Saving-Batt-Pick, an invaluable tool for removing the batt without damage to the equipment or the user.
  • * 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.
  • * The new Teasing Tool to open locks and tease fiber prior to carding.
  • * Table clamps to secure the carder to the work surface. Will fit tables up to 1-3/4" thick.
