strauch drum carder 200 seriesLong: Strauch drum carders with their sturdy, no-slip chain drive have been carding fleeces for over a decade. This strong carder with a choice of three carding cloths and two widths and heavy wood frame will get you fibers ready for spinning and felting.

These mid-range Strauch chain drive drum carders are made from solid ash and has a tung oil finish. The large drum is 7" in diameter x 8¼" wide. The carder produces a fiber batt approximately 8" wide x 22" long. The frame is 24" long, 12" wide, 4" high.

The Strauch 200 series carder uses a smaller sprocket yielding a turning ratio of 4:1. Because of this the frame height is 4" and therefore this carder has to be at the edge of the work surface, allowing the crank to clear the table.

The famous "Slicker-Licker" card cloth unique to ALL Strauch drum carders, is used on the small drum of every one of these carders.
