The Mad Batt’r Drum Carder is a Strauch-quality drum carder that produces wonderful, outrageous “art batts” full of exciting fibers and textures. This carder has deeper pins (1/2″ long) and coarser carding cloth (72 teeth per sq. in.) on the large drum to accommodate all the fun add-ins that make these art batts say “Spin me!”
Thick batts weighing more than 2 ounces can easily be made. The Brush Attachment makes it easier to control the type of art batt you are making.
Naturally, it also has the unique Slicker-Licker cloth on the small drum and built on a 6″ tall solid ash-wood frame (just like the Finest series). An added benefit is that the handle swings free of the table.
It is also available as a motorized model. If you choose the manual model, it can later be upgraded to a motorized carder.
