Information

The Wingham Drum carder is designed and built by us in South Yorkshire, allowing us to create a piece of equipment that has all the features we consider to be the most important. Within the design are the features that are not always visible but important. All the shafts rotate in bearings. The drums are easily adjustable to get the carding gap set. Robust stainless steel handle with an option for an extended length handle to make rotation easier.

Specifications

Constructed from European Beech finished with Danish oil, the Wingham Drum Card cloth is set at  72 points per inch (PPI),  the same grade as our Hand Carders. Coarser and finer grades are available, but the 72 PPI is a good balance for the vast majority of fibres that will be used.

The main drum measures 20cm (8") in width and has a diameter of 18cm (7"). This means that a final carded batt (sheet) will be approximately 62cm (25")long. A rolag for spinning would be 20cm long.

The carder frame is hand-made from certified sustainable European Beech, finished in Danish oil.

All rotating shafts are set in Oilite self lubricating sintered bronze bearings, ensuring not only that you get a smooth action on the carder but also that there is no wear leading to misalignment of the drums. These bearings are industrial standard designed to last a long time in high speed machinery so in the drum carder it will last a very long time.

The handle is made from heavy duty stainless steel with rotating wood grip. It's easily detached for storage and there's also the option of a longer handle to make turning easier.  The extended handle does reduce the turning effort but increases the arc of movement therefore, increasing  the amount of space required.  

Included is the packer brush which locates on the frame at the back of the main drum, no clamping, it sits on the frame. In this position when blending it packs the fibres before they pass under the drum. This ensures any loose material placed on the top of the drum when blending is pressed into place before it has a chance to drop off.

Two speed drive, useful to use the slower drive when carding and faster when blending.

The Wingham Drum Carder comes with a 5 Year Warranty against defective parts or construction during normal use.

Includes the following
Packer Brush, fits to the back frame. It can be lifted off if not required. Normal to have it off for carding fleece and on for blending mixes.
Cleaning Brush, small hand carder for cleaning the wire. Can also be used as a flick carder for preparing locks prior to carding.
Doffer awl spike, designed to easily slide between the wire and to cleanly lift out the fibre.
Table clamps  x 2

Dimensions
Length 47cm
Width 33cm
Width including handle 41cm
​Height 20cm.
Weight: 7.2 kg

Optional: Long stainless steel handle.
This is intended for those who may have difficulty in turning the drum with a standard length handle, as the extra long handle arm increases the mechanical advantage, making it much easier to turn. Please be aware that this will be sent instead of the standard length handle if selected, not in addition.

A beautifully made drum carder using good quality wood and fittings. The finishing is lovely and smooth and all the parts work beautifully together. It shows that care and thought has been made into putting this piece of machinery together. It works beautifully to card up to 30g of fibre at a time - you can maybe push on a little more but you do feel it when turning the handle. This has carded all kinds of fibre including washed unprocessed fleece which was very crimpy to softer silkier fibres like merino. For the finer fibres I tend to bypass the liquorin and card it directly on to the main drum but the few times finer fibre has passed through the liquorin, I didn't get too much trouble with stuck fibre. My drum carder came with the 2 table clamps, a cleaning brush and an awl. It is surprisingly compact which is something I'm grateful for as space is limited - I store this under my computer table. Definitely a quality item and a highly recommend purchase.

My Wingham Wool Drum Carder is even better than I thought it could be. Well made beautiful beechwood, I was able to start playing after a few minutes of opening the box. Just attached the handle.. smooth easy motion no effort to turn. A birthday gift from my husband. I felt like a child again just opening the box. The Drum Carder is such a joy to use. I am having so much fun mixing fibers,colours trying out ideas.
Thank you so much I really appreciate the quality of my purchase. The staff have been great with advice and so friendly. I ordered more wool I am going to need it !

This drum carder is sturdily built and turns smoothly. Deals easily with the exceptionally curly BFL fleece I recently acquired (after a bit of flicking and picking). Very pleased with it. Also very pleased with the packaging, a lot of very nice randomly coloured wool which should felt very nicely, and a couple of copies of Wheel magazine... thank you very much!

Having tried a friend's Wingham Drum Carder and dreaming of going from fleece to hand-knitted garments I took the plunge on this lovely item. So far I am thrilled with the craftsmanship and quality of the carder. It was delivered carefully in both recycled items and some gorgeous blended fibre too. I am very grateful to have this in my craft space and will be using it for years to come. Would recommend
