New in 2013, the XL Standard Drumcarder is a Work Horse! The diameter of the drum is 10 1/2" and the width is 11.5". The carder clamps to a table and comes already permanently adjusted for you. 

The card cloth is made of nickel-plated steel wire on a mat of cotton and natural rubber, giving it a long service life.  The frame is birch plywood with a white Melamine surface layer.  The roller gears are enclosed in the cabinet resulting in reduced maintenance.

The 46 Tpi Carder is designed to accommodate fine to medium fiber lengths. The teeth on the carder are 3/8" deep and a batt of about an ounce can be produced. Color blending can be done with success as well.

The 72 Tpi Carder is designed to card extra fine luxury fibers and blends of medium to extra fine. If you create mixed fiber batts the Extra Fine 72 Tpi XL is worth the investment.
