Strauch Finest - Single Wide Chain Drive Drum Carder
The Strauch Finest, model 405-BA. This top-of-the-line model is unique and comes complete with the Brush Attachment and all accessories.
Having a chain as the drive mechanism provides a constant positive non-slipping action while carding and is far superior to belt drives.
The Finest has a 5:1 drum ratio. You obtain more carding action per revolution, hence quickly producing a beautiful, well blended batt. One to two passes are usually sufficient for a nice spinnable batt.
An important feature: The tall frame allows the handle to swing free of the table surface.
Designed to handle ALL fibers, including merino, llama, alpaca, cashmere, cotton blend, dog hair ......... on and on. A truly universal machine!
It is also available as a motorized model. If you choose the manual model, it can later be upgraded to a motorized carder.
