A few people have been saying they'd like a drum carder... well there's one just been announced on Ravelry, a Louet Junior. 

It's in Powys.

It's 5 years old and the ad says very lightly used, it looks in very good condition from the pics.

These are £250 new (P&M Woolcraft); the seller and her Ravelling friend don't know what to ask for it.  I've never seen one for less than £170, and that was for a very well-used, one might almost say beat-up, one. So somewhere around £200-£210, I guess.

The Junior is a narrow drum carder, the batts it produces are 4" wide.  I have one and a friend of mine has one, and both of us don't feel the need to upgrade to a wider item.  (Mine fits on my windowsill, so I'd have to give up table space to a wider one!)
