Awesome Deal - New Drum Carder!
I was teaching at Sheep and Wool in Iowa this past weekend. During my dye class one of my students mentioned she was selling a drum carder on behalf of her friend who was clearing out some extra equipment so she would have money and room for an Angora rabbit. I've been wanting a drum carder for a while so I had her show it to me and I took it. I only paid $150 for it. It is in great shape, everything moves freely, and it only had some dust on it from its sitting unused for a while. However, it does not have a brand name on it and neither my student nor her friend knew what brand it came from. I would really love to find out what brand it is so if I ever have to replace the drive band I will know what to buy. If anyone has ever seen one like this I would appreciate it if you could tell me the brand.
