The Clemes & Clemes 8 inch fine tooth drum carder
has been the standard of the industry since it was introduced in
1976. Professional spinners, schools, guilds, and hobbyists have
long sought the quality of carding that is possible with this
The oak frame has an attractive shape with smooth rounded edges and lacquer finish for years of durable service. The wooden tray allows easy feeding of the fibers. The carders are completely assembled and ready to use right out of the box.The card clothing is available in fine tooth and coarse tooth. Most spinners require fine teeth on their carders. Almost any type of fiber can be carded with our fine tooth carder. We recommend coarse teeth on a carder only when carding a coarser fiber and a rougher texture is desired.
Adjustment between the carding drums is achieved by the use of eccentric bearings on the smaller drum shaft. A very accurate adjustment is possible using this method. It is this fine adjustment that makes it possible with our fine toothed carder to card a variety of fibers successfully without changing drums or making any adjustments to the carder. From cotton to all types of wool, mohair, and alpaca this carder just keeps on carding. The carding drums are adjusted at the factory and rarely ever need adjustment.
The urethane drive belt, with figure 8, provides the smoothest, most reliable carding action possible. The belt has a long life, usually exceeding 10 years. Replacement belts are available and are easily changed without making any adjustments to the carder.
The 4" version has all of the features of the 8" model and is designed for the occassional spinnner or the spinner who travels a lot.
