EQUIPMENT – Drum Carders and related products

DRUM CARDERS – in my view, are an expensive, lifelong purchase, so you need to think carefully about your decision when purchasing.  I have had my original Inwood-Smith Manufacturing 6″ Drum Carder – 50 ppsi since the early 1980’s and have now passed it on to my daughter !!!!
