Strauch Mad Batt'r - Double Wide Chain Drive Drum Carder
For those who want to make really wide and thick "Art-batts", the "Mad Batt'r double wide" model 302x2-BA is available. This model has drums twice as wide as the regular Mad Batt'r.
This carder has deeper pins (1/2" long) and coarser carding cloth (72 teeth per sq. in.) on the large drum to accommodate all sorts of fun add-ins.
Naturally, it also has the unique Slicker-Licker cloth on the small drum. As with all of our 200 Series carders, the Mad Batt'r has a 4:1 turning ratio. The three working tools (Batt picker, doffer brush, dabber brush), as well as a set of table clamps, are included with each carder
The Mad Batt'r is built on a solid ash-wood frame (just like the Finest series). An added benefit is that the handle swings free of the table.
It is also available as a motorized model. If you choose the manual model, it can later be upgraded to a motorized carder.
