The Oracle Hollander Beaters

Oracle Beaters are designed by Lee McDonald who has been working in the paper field since 1967.  His goal was to design an easy to use beater that was portable and affordable for all people to use.

The Oracles capacity is 1 to 1.5lb of fiber or pulp.  These beaters are capable of handling any papermaking fiber or raw stock. They will easily process rag, flax and gathered fiber.  Whether you want traditional sheet-forming pulp or 12-hour beaten flax, this machine will meet your needs. 

The Oracles have found acceptance in studios and schools where there are space and budget constraints.  You can store it in a 40” x 24” x 24” (101.6 cm x 60.96 cm x 60.96 cm) space, pull it out when you need it, and transport it to different sites as necessary.  Our tub is available in three possible colors: red, blue and yellow.
