Ashford Fine -

With 72 teeth/sq/in, this drum carder cards 2 oz batts at a time. Clamp and awl included. I've used this model for carding raw fleece in the medium to fine range and also have used it quite a bit for blending colors of merino top for felting projects. Nice aesthetics, solid machine (not fussy like my Patrick Greene).

Ashford Wild Carder

With longer teeth (still 72 tpsi like the Fine, above) and a brush attachment, this new carder is fantastic for creating art batts......lovely batts with lots of texture and doo-dads for spinning or felting. Really... chunks of paper, snippets of yarn, silk cocoons, etc.....all can get worked into these batts! Narrower, so you'd think you can't card as much at a time, but because the teeth are long and flexible to allow for lots of textured items to be added, you actually get a good sized 1.5 oz batt from it!
