The Gentle Roller felt rolling machine has a modular construction consisting of two separate assemblies:
- the motor control housing and
- the roller assembly.
This makes it easier to transport, easier to move, but can also save you money.
The 1100mm roller is ideal for those using 36in (90cm) width materials. Whether you make yardage, smaller items, or if you are a garment maker, it is ideal as most garment items will comfortably fit on the roller.
The 1400mm roller is ideal if you want to work with the full width of a 45 inch (120cm) wide fabric.
If you already own an 1100mm Gentle Roller felt rolling machine (roller assembly and motor assembly) and decide to take on wider fabrics necessitating a 1400mm roller you can purchase a full second machine, but you don't need to. Save by simply purchasing a 1400mm roller assembly (without motor) and connect it to your existing motor and control housing when you want to use it.
In addition, the motor control housing comes with built in programming to control the Gentle Roller Fulling Drum (finishing drum) for fulling your work after it has been rolled to a quality pre-felt. If you purchase a Fulling Drum from the outset, or add it later, no extra programming is required, again saving you money.
