Product Details

The Strauch flagship drum carder model is the Finest. 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 motorized. If you choose the manual model, it can later be upgraded to a motorized carder.


Special Tools included with each "Finest" are:

  • The popular Knuckle-Saving-Batt-Pick, an invaluable tool for removing the batt without damage to the equipment or the user.
  • A Doffer/Cleaner Brush to thoroughly and easily clean any residual fibers from the carding drum.
  • A small cleaner/dabber brush for use on the licker in drum.
  • Our Teasing Tool to open locks and tease fiber prior to carding.
  • Table clamps to secure the carder to the work surface.
