Images from BSG part 1

I'm sending these in from my mobile phone, so can only do a few at a time. Here are some pictures of a very cool, foot pedal powered drum carder. It has 3 drums and 2 speeds and can make a batt 3' x 18". The wood is red elm, and the gal doing the demonstration is the designer and builder.


  1. Wow, that's right up your alley - woodworking and fiber! Are you going to start making and selling these??? I'm thinking foot-pedal-powered makes SO much more sense than my hand-crank Clemes & Clemes....

  2. Michelle, I love the idea of foot powered carders, but I'm not such a good woodworker... Still, I wouldn't mind playing with one for a while.
