This is the 'Junior' or 'Roving' carder from Louet. The Junior drum carders give you a choice, have an extra fine cloth (72 teeth per square inch), or choose the coarser version (46 teeth per square inch). The advantage of this extra fine cloth is that you also can perfectly card very fine fibers.
The Roving drum carder is equipped with a doffer brush, doffer pin and two table clamps to clamp it onto a sturdy table.
For drum carders it is common to mention the gear ratio that drives the licker-in when you rotate the large drum. For the Roving carder the ratio is 3.8:1. . . However, what really counts for carding is the ratio of the surface speed of both drums. You get this by multiplying the gear ratio with the ratio of the diameters of the large drum and the licker-in. This surface speed ratio is 12:1 for the Junior drum carder.
