Description

I'm currently offering free shipping in the continental US ($50 shipping credit to Alaska/Hawaii) and a whopping THREE POUNDS of fiber glory with all Strauch motorized carders! You'll get a mix that may include commercially and hand-dyed wool and blends, scoured fleece, natural colored and dyed tops, sparkle, silk, bamboo, blending nylon, locks, tencel and odds and ends, so you can start playing right away!

----

Nikol: The Mad Batt'r (manual or motorized) is my all-round favorite machine for drum carding everything. The deep cloth makes a nice plump batt & the teeth are coarse enough to allow for lots of wubbly texture but fine enough for smooth blending of almost anything you encounter. The motorized doublewide Mad Batt'r is my personal production machine, and it is a marvelous workhorse, saving your shoulders and letting you fully concentrate on your beautiful creations. I typically get 6 oz or more onto the doublewide. Bigger batts can be split in half for a more traditional width for sale; or make jumbo batts for longer spins.

---------

From Strauch:

Our customers requested a Strauch-quality carder that would produce those wonderful, outrageous "art batts" full of exciting fibers and textures. The manual carder has become so popular that offering a motorized version was the next logical progression.

Having both hands free makes it easier to control the type of art batt you are making. Since you can set the drum rotation speed to a particular value, your batts are consistent. Thick batts weighing more than 3 ounces can easily be made.

It uses the same motor and electronics as the Finest series. Included are all accessories and the Brush Attachment.
Motorized Mad Batt'r Double Wide Chain Drive (DCM-302x2): $2290.00

For those who want to make really wide and thick "Art-batts", the "Mad Batt'r double wide" model 302x2-BA is available. This model has drums twice as wide as the regular Mad Batt'r.
Other than size, the doublewide has the identical features and benefits as the singlewide version and comes complete with all available accessories including the Brush Attachment.

Special tools included with each "Mad Batt'r" are:
-The popular Knuckle-Saving-Batt-Pick, an invaluable tool for removing the batt without damage to the equipment or the user.
-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 drum (It's also great for cleaning off your work surface)
-Table clamps to secure the carder to the work surface, if desired.

International buyers: I cover the first $50 of shipping (average cost of domestic shipping, which I cover for US buyers), so any international shipping profiles show the shipping cost less my $50. If you're interested in purchasing, convo me & I'll check with Otto for the cost.

Great purchase. I especially appreciated the selection of fibers included to take a test drive! They were thoughtfully selected and are proving a lot of fun to help discover the capabilities of my new carder. Thank you!
