Louet Classic Drum Carder $425

Lightly used carder in good shape. All teeth in place and still strong. No parts missing. Cards beautifully! One flaw, the wooden piece that you put the pick against to dislodge the batt has a crack (photo below). It came that way when I bought it (new), and I never got around to asking for a new one because it worked fine! I think I've had it for about 6-7 years.

Here's the blurb from Louet:

7.5 " wide made of Laminated Birch, assembled. Includes doffer brush, doffer pin, clamps and instructions. The Carding cloth is fine (46 TPSI) and will handle medium-fine, medium and coarse fibers. This surface speed ratio is 9:1. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louët carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. The gearbox, is enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system.

Located in Western Massachusetts, if you want to pick it up, or buyer pays shipping. I'm happy to pack it up carefully. I'm also willing to travel a wee bit to meet a serious buyer :)
