    Carding Machines, Bailey Mill, Delph - June 2012

    Visited with Nocturnal and Oldskool


    A ridiculous amount of rainfall put paid to our previous plans, but Oldskool was kind enough to drive me over to Delph to check out their basement goodies which I have been lazy enough to never get round to. Fittingly, it was my goal at the other site we failed at, so it turned from a failure of a day into a small slice of winrar for me! Thanks Oldskool. Not too popular with some on this forum, but a top guy all the same. I notice all his reports are still on here, though :p:

    This was supposed to be easy, but 'easy' access has changed somewhat, so a little effort ensued, eventually I shrugged off my CBA attitude and got on with the awkward squeeze.

    History thanks to Zero81

    Carding Process

    After the wool dries, it is carded. Carding is a mechanical process that disentangles, cleans and intermixes fibers to produce a continuous web or sliver suitable for subsequent processing. This is achieved by passing the fibers between differentially moving surfaces covered with card clothing. It breaks up locks and unorganised clumps of fibre and then aligns the individual fibres to be parallel with each other.

    The carding process involves passing the wool through rollers that have thin wire teeth. The teeth untangle the fibers and arrange them into a flat sheet called a web. The web is then formed into narrow ropes known as slivers.
