Product Details:

Strauch the Finest Model 405
This top-of-the-line model is unique and comes complete with the brush attachment and all available accessories. Having a chain as the drive mechanism provides a constant positive non-slipping action while carding and is far superior to belt drives.

Finest: The wood frame is solid ash with a warm honey-oak/tung oil finish. The large drum is 7" in diameter x 8¼" wide. The small drum is 2" in diameter x 8" wide. The carder produces a batt approximately 8" wide x 22" long. The frame is 24" long, 11½" wide, 6" high.

Double-wide: The wood frame is solid ash with a warm honey-oak/tung oil finish. The large drum is 7" in diameter x 15¼" wide. The small drum is 2" in diameter x 16" wide. The carder produces a batt approximately 15" wide x 22" long. The frame is 24" long, 18½" wide, 6" high.

An important feature: The tall frame allows the handle to swing freely of the table surface.
This unit is equipped with the 128 tpi (teeth per square inch) fine carding cloth on the large drum and our unique "Slicker-Licker" cloth on the small drum. Designed to handle ALL fibers, including Merino, Llama, Alpaca, Cashmere blend, dog hair and other exotics. The 6" high frame permits a larger sprocket on the small drum giving this carder a 5:1 drum ratio. With minimal turning, you obtain more carding action per revolution. This ratio produces a beautiful, well blended batt. Two to three passes are usually sufficient for a nice spinning batt.

The Finest & Finest Double-wide are also available as a motorized model. If you choose the manual model, it can later be upgraded to a motorized carder.

Special tools included with each "Finest" are:


- The popular Knuckle-Saving-Batt-Pick, an invaluable tool for removing the batt without damage to the equipment or the user.
- A 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 in drum.
- Our Teasing Tool to open locks and tease fiber prior to carding.
- Table clamps to secure the carder to the work surface.
- This top-of-the-line model is unique and comes complete with the Brush Attachment and all available accessories. Having a chain as the drive mechanism provides a constant positive non-slipping action while carding and is far superior to belt drives.

"I loved it"

Christopher McCOmbs on 3/5/2016 12:00:41 AM


Product Review: For several years I had a belt driven drum carder, and began to hate it within a few years of use. the belt would slip, or break, and I couldn't keep everything in alignment. I had five fleeces to do in only a few days, and I borrowed a friends Strauch 405, and fell in love with it. It was so easy to use, and I never had to make a single adjustment. The only thing I could have done to make this easier would be to have sent it off to a carding mill and waited a year for them to come back.
