The Finest - Our Flagship Drum Carder


The Finest Drum Carder - Single Wide Chain Drive (DC-405): $880.00
Finest Drum Carder: Single Wide Finest Drum Carder: Accessories

Our flagship drum carder model is the Finest model 405-BA. This top-of-the-line model is unique and comes complete with the Brush Attachment and all accessories.

Having a chain as the drive mechanism provides a constant positive non-slipping action while carding and is far superior to belt drives.

The Finest has a 5:1 drum ratio. You obtain more carding action per revolution, hence quickly producing a beautiful, well blended batt. One to two passes are usually sufficient for a nice spinnable batt.

An important feature: The tall frame allows the handle to swing free of the table surface.

Designed to handle ALL fibers, including merino, llama, alpaca, cashmere, cotton blend, dog hair ......... on and on. A truly universal machine!

It is also available as a motorized model. If you choose the manual model, it can later be upgraded to a motorized carder.

The Finest Drum Carder - Double Wide Chain Drive (DC-405x2): $1180.00
Finest Drum Carder: Double Wide

For those who need a larger production size machine, a Finest doublewide model 405x2-BA is available. Part of the flagship Finest model series, this top-of-the-line model has drums twice as wide as the regular Finest.

Other than size, our doublewide drum carder has the identical features and benefits as the singlewide version and comes complete with all available accessories including the Brush Attachment.

It is also available as a motorized model. If you choose the manual model, it can later be upgraded to a motorized carder.
