Description
 
"Tumbling" your fleeces in the Fleece-O-Matic Tumbler is more effective at lowering microns and improving uniformity by removing the coarser fibers without removing the finer fibers. Debris is "tumbled" out. Engineered for safety and efficacy. Ergonomic design - You can mount the tumbler at any wall height to prevent you from ever having to stoop over. The large 30" opening allows EASY access to your fleece. Significantly lower shippings costs than other tumblers on the market (Shipping is approximately $150 to $325 and will be added to the total invoice at the time the product ships)

....."its tumbulutionary in design"
A recent industry study was conducted thru a collaboration of 3 different entitys a Fiber Mill, a Retail Store, and a testing laboratory with the goal of finding out what happens to Fleece micron during the fiber milling process!!! Fleece samples were collected from several stages of the milling process with particular focus on the dehairing machine. Hundreds of histograms were recorded from samples taken before & after different stages of processing. Dehairing machine samples taken from the samples of the "removed hairy fleece" contained much of the very fine fleece that we don't want removed!!!...... Results indicated that dehairing can actually INCREASE the overall microns of the final product !!!!! In fact, performing double dehairing exaggerated the negative results. The researchers concluded that "TUMBLING" the fleece in their Fleece-O-Matic was more effective at lowering the microns and improving uniformity, than their expensive dehairing machine . Tumbling significantly removes the thicker primaries WITHOUT removing the fine fleece too!........

I love my Fleece O Matic and can't wait to be able to use it more. It gets the dust out so well, I don't even have to dust my carder off after putting the fiber through- there IS none!

We have finally received the machine and wish to thank you for all the effort that has gone into the whole process. It arrived perfectly intact and packaged and we are really impressed with it. From the moment we turned it on, we could see that we had the best machine for us.

I just HAVE to put in my two cents on this product. My mill was honored with evaluating the initial prototype of this puppy.
First lesson was it worked SO well, outside was a saving grace!
Second was my ability to mount it wherever I wanted. I was not stuck with a location as I am with our huge one. Third was the ease of loading and unloading. I'm short and ALL woman. Climbing down into the big tumbler is beyond a pain. Why do we have a different tumbler? This one wasn't designed yet. So a couple years later.....the Fleece O Matic has over 5000 hrs on her. And she's working while I type without a hitch. If you are into creating true QUALITY fleece products...this is an important tool. And NO Don's not paying me! Lol. Seriously, a fabulous machine. I wouldn't be endorsing it if it was anything less then awesome.
