Louet Elite Drum Carder, 72 psi

Louet Elite Drum Carder, 72 psi

$825.00

The Elite Carder is made from laminated birch and has a hard white coating. The drum is 7 1/2" wide and the teeth are hard wearing high grade plated steel wire. All gearboxes on Louet carders are enclosed to prevent fibres from entering the gear system. 


Louet's Elite has been designed with new blending techniques in mind - the large drum has an extra fine cloth and the small drum, or licker-in, has a special cltoh that avoids the build-up of clostly fibres. It has two different gear ratios and the large feed tray mades it easier to blend the fibres. 

All carders are equipped with a doffer brush, doffer pin and two table clamps to clamp onto a sturdy table. 

An instruction manual written by well known author and fibre artist Deb Menz is included with all Drum Carders.
