Strauch "405" "Finest" Drum Carder with *FREE SHIPPING*

Brand Name: Strauch

Strauch "405" "Finest" Drum Carder

The "Flagship" model drum carder is the "DC-405", also known as the "Finest".

The wood frame is ash with a warm honey-oak finish. It has a 7" diameter x 7 3/4" working drum and a 2" x 8" licker drum producing a batt approximately 7" wide x 22" long. The overall length of the machine is 24" and width is 11 1/2" with a frame height of 6" (this is important since the swing of the handle clears the table-top or working surface so you don't have to work over the edge for clearance).

The unit is equipped with 128tpi carding cloth and the "Slicker-Licker". The 6" high frame allows a larger diameter sprocket on the small drum. This give you a 5:1 ration 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.
