Schacht has built a lifetime of service into their hand carders. They have a small lip milled into the rear edge of the paddle to protect the card clothing from becoming worn and the handles have been precisely tenoned into the paddles for superior strength.
We stock these cotton carders with curved paddles. With 208 points per square inch, these cotton cards are excellent for cotton and other short fibers. If you would like the flat paddles, we can special order them for you.
