They can be very dangerous and must be treated with respect, please understand that before ordering.
Our points are ground, polished and hardened to maintain their sharpness. Do treat these points with respect, and please don’t ask us to sell our picker to you unless you are a responsible individual who will ensure its safe use and locked storage.
Due to the nature of the picker, we have added a positive lock on the swinging cradle- not only to allow the machine to be carried in safety, but also to be padlocked to protect children or unauthorized people from playing with it and doing themselves an injury. It must be treated with great caution. We supply a small padlock to lock the machine when it is not in use. It is your responsibility to NOT use the machine when children are around, and to prevent others from becoming injured. Treat it with the same respect you give a power lawnmower or a sharp knife. We cannot accept any responsibility for any damage or injury attributed to the wool picker. For Safety, we recommend close-fitting leather leather gloves and our Picker Claw.
By purchasing this item you understand that neither Brother Drum Carder OR Red Hill Fiber Mill are NOT responsible for any injuries sustained by misuse.
