This machine is for those who need a larger production machine, a "Finest double wide" . Part of the flagship "Finest" model series, this top of the line model has drums twice as wide as the regular Finest and also comes complete with all available accessories including the Brush Attachment.

The wood frame is solid ash with a warm honey-oak/tung oil finish. The large drum is 7" in diameter x 15" wide. The small drum is 2" in diameter x 16" wide. The carder produces a batt approximately 15" wide x 22" long. The frame is 24" long, 18" wide, 6" high.

If it shows in stock it will ship from Maine. If it is a backorder it will be drop shipped from the factory usually in 6-10 business days.
  • Having a chain as the drive mechanism provides a constant positive non-slipping action while carding and is far superior to belt drives.
  • This unit is equipped with the #05 -128 tpi (teeth per square inch) fine carding cloth on the large drum and our unique "Slicker-Licker" cloth on the small drum. Designed to handle ALL fibers, including Merino, Llama, Alpaca, Cashmere blend, dog hair and other exotics.
  • The 6" high frame permits a larger sprocket on the small drum giving this carder a 5:1 drum ratio. With minimal turning, you obtain more carding action per revolution. This ratio produces a beautiful, well blended batt. Two to three passes are usually sufficient for a nice spinning batt.
  • The "Finest" is also available as a motorized model. If you choose the manual model, it can later be upgraded to a motorized carder. Go to Upgrading existing manual drive Finest series drum carders to a motorized version for detailed information
  • 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.
