Electricarder AND Ashford 12 inch carder Package. [Currently Only available within Australia]
The ElectriCarder is designed to work with your Ashford Carder as an accessory. There is no permanent modification necessary to your Ashford Carder. The ElectriCarder does not change the way the Ashford Cards, just how it is powered.
It is made from hardwood locally sourced in the Mid North Coast of NSW. The ecologically sustainable plantation timber is locally milled, and the unit is craftsman made. The timber is finished with an organic timber treatment.
Easy DIY installation
# Place your carder on the ElectriCarder after removing the feet
# Screw in the latches for added stability
# remove the handle & add the new pulley
# wind the belt
# plug in the ElectriCarder
No need to modify the Ashford Carder other than screwing in the stability buckles.
Key Features of the ElectriCarder are:
- operates the Carder at variable speeds
- variable ratios using the existing Carder Pulleys
- Self installation requires a screwdriver
- stands on non-scratch feet
- Motor Unit enclosed to provide safety
- Operates both forward and reverse
forward to card / reverse for easy removal of rovings

50W motor... from 0 - 100 rpm - but we suggest that you use the ElectriCarder at around 30-40 rpm for maximum control.
The beauty of the ElectriCarder is that you can still hand-crank if you want to.
If you need your old Carder renovated, we can arrange the craftsman
from ElectriCarder to look at it for you.
