This kit comes with the comb set, an accessory kit and the comb holder for $225.00 which is a saving of $10.00.
This set of small wool combs with the 3 row fine headsets are designed for many of the fleeces we have available to us in Australia including alpaca and merino.
The headsets are aluminium and the tines are precision machined from stainless steel. The first row has 14 x 2.2mm tines set 2.7mm apart and the working area is 7 cm wide and 9.5 cm high.
The timber we use is recycled Blackwood and is sourced from a local mill.
There are optional interchangeable headsets available in 3 row standard, 3 row ultrafine or 4 row ultrafine.
The set comes with a Petlyn Screw Clamp which are designed on a classic cabinet makers bench clamp that holds tightly and won’t mark your product or surface. This adjustable screw clamp holds tightly on most surfaces. The angle betweek the jaws can be adjusted to give an even fit to your product and bench/table. The jaws are rubber lined to provide extra prevention against marking your product & bench/table. The jaws are blackwood to match the comb set. Maximum jaw capacity is 70mm.
You can process stronger fibres on this comb set, you just can’t do as much due to resistance.
Combing removes the vegetable matter, second cuts etc by trapping it behind or between the tines. Combed fibres are aligned parallel to make a smooth worsted or semi worsted yarn.
Combs are a perfect way to blend colours and texture. They can be used on their own or with a blending hackle. You have total control over the amount of colour and the proportion of each that are going to work in your roving.
