Product Description

Majacraft supports direct shipments, which means online prices including shipping costs but delivery times will typically be 2-3 weeks.

Majacraft is a small family run business that has seen considerable growth in business this year. They are having difficulties filling orders currently, and we are seeing shipping delays of up to 1-2 months on some items.


The Fusion Engine is Majacraft's amazing drum carder. It has a higher and more efficient carding ratio than most carders, so blends fibres more thoroughly with fewer passes. The Fusion Engine was designed to have no exposed gears or belts, and a unique drum so fibres do not get where they shouldn't and cleaning of the carder is minimised. Removal of the interchangeable drums makes that rare cleaning simple and easy, and allows for rapid changes between carding coarse through superfine fibres.

Some features of the Fusion Enginer carder:

  • The Fusion Engine drums use a unique new design that offers several benefits, the most obvious being the prominent edges that keep the fibre on the drum, so there is no clogging or tangling of material around the axles. The special shaping of the edging actually helps to draw the fibres onto the drum, almost to the point of appearing as though it is 'sucking' the fibre in. This in turn significantly reduces the maintenance and cleaning required.
  • A major feature of the Fusion Engine is the ability to change drums. There is no need to purchase multiple carders to work with different kinds of fibres as we offer drums with different carding cloth densities. Your carding becomes considerably cheaper and your single machine far more versatile. There are just three grub screws holding the main drum in place, and it is possible to swap the interchangeable drums in a couple of minutes!
  • The fusion engine has a gearbox - with real gears! This was chosen as it could offer multiple benefits. Firstly it makes the mechanism for converting the ratios between the main drum and licker-in much more compact, small enough to be embedded into the side of the carder. This consequently will keep your carder cleaner as the gears are hidden away and will not get clogged with fibre and other debris. A gearbox also permits running a much greater ratio in a compact space. Typically carders have between 3:1 and 4:1 gearing ratios. The Fusion Engine has a ratio of 8:1 which will produce a more evenly blended batt.
  • The feed tray is adjustable. Underneath the tray is an easy-grip wooden nut that lets you position the feed tray close or far from the licker-in. The ability to adjust the tray lets you card anything from washed fleece to combed tops.
  • The licker-in drum is mounted on the two actuators which can be very simply adjusted by unscrewing the locking JCB bolts - the gearbox cover does not even need to be removed for this. What is a tricky job on other carders is elementary on the Fusion Engine.
  • The Fusion Engine has a folding handle. This allows the carder to fit into a more compact space but more importantly, no more whacking your hips into the handle as you walk past the table! The handle length is short enough that you can card in the centre of the table as well, it does not have to overhang the edge.
  • Great for lefties and righties: the Fusion Engine was designed so that it can be used in left or right handed configuration. The axle on the main drum has been specially drilled to allow it to be inserted on either side of the carder. By unscrewing three grub screws you can slip the handle and axle and then then put it in from the other side.
  • A Packer brush has been added so that more fibre can be packed on to your drums. Our design differs in that the brush is positioned near the back of the main drum so as much of the drum is exposed as possible. This makes it easier to remove the batt after carding. It also leaves a clearer space to work if you wish to lay fibre elements directly on to the main drum or diz from the drum. The brush is secured in place using a ratchet mechanism so once you set the pressure of the brush, it will not slide out of place which can happen with brushes held by nuts and bolts. It is also easier to position by simply clicking the gears on the ratchet rather than having to tighten nuts as firmly as possible - only to have them move when you don't want it.
  • The cleaner brush is super lightweight and has a working area of 95mm x 55mm (3.75" x 2") using 72TPI cloth.
  • The picker for this brush does not have a sharp point so you will not have the concern of damaging your cloth when removing the batts from the drum.
