DRUM CARDER RULES
(Please read before renting carder)
- Please ask at a meeting for contact information for the member who keeps the carder. You can
then arrange for picking up and dropping off the carder. Renters will sign an agreement before
taking the carder.
- The fee is $5.00 for two days or $10 per week, with a limit of 2 weeks. It must be returned
after 2 weeks, unless the keeper of the carder has had no other requests. Then, it can be borrowed
for another 1 or 2 weeks, but no longer.
- Payment MUST be made when the carder is returned. The keeper of the carder transfers
carder rental fees to the treasurer every six months. If payment is not made at this time, the fee
of $10.00 per week will continue.
- The carder must be returned clean and in good working order.
a. Tools for cleaning are in the bin with the carder.
b. Use the brush to clean the rollers.
c. Use the long tweezers to regularly remove fuzz from the bearings.
d. The pick is ONLY used to remove the batt from the drum at the drum cloth connection
line. This pick MUST NOT come in contact with the drum cloth containing the wire claws. This
cloth is very expensive to replace.
e. Feed only small amounts into the carder each time.
e. DO NOT OIL OR GREASE THE CARDER ANYWHERE. DO NOT ATTEMPT
REPAIRS. If there are problems, contact the keeper of the carder who will obtain advice from
an experienced user of the carder or the executive of the guild.
- These rules have been compiled in an attempt to be fair to everyone who wishes to use the
carder and to address issues which have come up in the past.
PHWSG Spinning Wheel Rental Guidelines
Louet S15DT, Louet S-17 Single Treadle (two)
and Schacht Ladybug Wheels
- The spinning wheels are available for use during Guild taught lessons
or Study Group at monthly General Meetings.
- Wheels are available for rental by PHWSG members only.
- It is understood, that the member who is renting the wheel will be the
only one operating the wheel.
- The rental agreement form must be signed before taking a wheel
- The weekly rental fee is $15.00 per month up to a maximum of 3
months duration (unless another member is waiting for that particular
wheel, in which case it would be returned within a month so that it
may be rented out the next month to the waiting member).
- The wheel is to be returned to KAGS within the appointed rental time.
- Maintenance/repair is to be done only by the assigned member in
charge of Spinning Equipment.
Please Note – At the end of each use on all wheels, the tension knob is to
be loosened and the drive band dropped down to the smallest whorl or
removed from the main wheel and left loose. This will eliminate warping of
the wheel and stretching of the drive band.
