For Sale: Fancy Kitten Drum Carder with motorization kit and brush attachment - $500

Carding Cloth TPI 90/120 (Fine, able to card merino). I only used a couple times.
Carder & Cloth are in excellent “as new” condition. 

It has an 8.5" wide drum that will produce batts 22" long. 

TOOLS INCLUDED: 

  • 4" burnishing brush 
  • doffer stick
  • hemostat 

The motor kit uses a high-quality gear head motor. This allows for great torque (turning power) at a very slow speed. It features speed control and reverse. It uses a tooth belt & pulley system that replaces the hand crank. It has the strength of a chain drive but without the noise & maintenance. 

The Kitten has a 4 to 1 drive that does not slip, for smooth operation. It has 1/2" long carder wire giving you the ability to produce thick batts. It is 15" in length, 15" wide, and weighs approximately 10 pounds. Kitten drum carders are made from 100% North American Red Oak hardwoods. The slide out feed tray is made from one quarter inch hardwood veneer.
