By popular request Strauch created a high-quality drum carder that would produce those wonderful, outrageous “art batts” full of exciting fibers and textures.
The Strauch Model 302 series “Mad Batt’r” art drum carder as part of our regular product line. This carder has deeper pins (1/2″ long) and coarser carding cloth (72 teeth per sq. in.) on the large drum to accommodate all the fun add-ins that make these art batts say “Spin me!”
Thick batts weighing more than 2 ounces can easily be made. The Brush Attachment makes it easier to control the type of art batt you are making.
Naturally, it also has the unique Slicker-Licker cloth on the small drum. The Mad Batt’r has a 4:1 turning ratio. The three working tools (Batt picker, doffer brush, dabber brush), as well as a set of table clamps, are included with each carder.
For those who want to make really wide and thick “Art-batts”, the “Mad Batt’r double wide” model 302×2-BA is available. This model has drums twice as wide as the regular Mad Batt’r.
Other than size, this doublewide drum carder has the identical features and benefits as the singlewide version. It comes complete with the same accessories as the singlewide including the brush attachment.
The motorized versions of the Mad Batt’r are identical to the manual versions, but with a variable speed motor.
