Strauch Mad Batt'r - Single Wide Chain Drive Drum Carder
Customers requested a Strauch-quality carder that would produce those wonderful, outrageous "art batts" full of exciting fibers and textures.
We now offer the Strauch Model 302 series "Mad Batt'r" art drum carder as part of our regular product line. This carder has deeper pins (1/2" long) and coarser carding cloth (72 teeth per sq. in.) on the large drum to accommodate all the fun add-ins that make these art batts say "Spin me!"
Thick batts weighing more than 2 ounces can easily be made. The Brush Attachment makes it easier to control the type of art batt you are making.
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 6" tall 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.
