Louët carders require no adjustment; the non-slipping gears are enclosed and require no lubrication. The extra long teeth allow the carder to produce thicker batts than most. The Roving Carder has these same great qualities but is scaled for those who are preparing only small amounts of fiber at a time because its drum is a modest 4" wide.
The Roving carder comes with:
- 72 teeth per square inch
- 4" wide by 10.5" diameter drum
- surface speed ratio of 12:1
- enclosed gear box to prevent fibers from entangling the gears
- doffing pin, brush, and clamps
The Roving Carder weighs 13 pounds and comes assembled. It is manufactured in the Netherlands.
