This kit comes with the comb set, an accessory kit and the comb holder for $295.00 which is a saving of $10.00.
Our Ultrafine small combset has 4 rows of tines. This comb has been specifically designed for fleeces which are less than 18 micron.
The headsets are aluminium and the tines are precision machined from stainless steel. The first row has 20 x 2.2mm tines set 1.2mm 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 fine & 3 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 mid range fibres on this comb set, you just can’t do as much due to resistance. Combing overly long or coarser fibres on this comb set is not very successful due to their tine spacing.
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.
