Antique french wool carding machine

Antique wool carder        £125 Unusual wool carding machine, used for teasing out raw wool into something that can be spun on a spinning wheel. It’s French and made from elm, or a fruitwood, and iron. There’s a swinging section spiked rather lethally with bent nails, and more nails below. Health and Safety would have a stroke.
