Carder issues

We sent the barrel of the carder out to have a guy get it centered for us. $25 later, still not centered. Hubby worked on it all yesterday afternoon with no luck. I suggested it might just be that the PVC is warped. We figure that's exactly what it is. So today we're headed out to get a circle edge jig for the router and some more wood. He's then going to cut individual circles out, each 7" in diameter and he'll know where absolute center is as he cuts them. He'll then glue them together, let them set some, and we'll get the carding cloth on and HOPEFULLY it'll be ready for use tomorrow!

I have all of these fleeces just waiting ... and I'm getting a bit impatient to use it as well. :)
