It's a Bump!

Pretty nifty, huh? I've been meaning to try taking the carded fiber off with a diz, but each time I'd dig right in with the doffer. Last evening I finally remembered. It's a little time consuming, but with a little practice I'll cut my time. This one weighs 103 grams.

I made the table for my carder today. Never let it be said that the lack of equipment kept me from tackling a job. Can't find the sawhorses, try this.


  1. Very clever! Do you have plans for the table you built? David has decided to spend the summer learning to use his table saw and other power tools. I'm happy to let him build the table, but he's an engineer and must have PLANS.

  2. Looking good! (Be careful of those moving parts, though!) Do you diz in a large spiral off of the drum?
