HIGH DESIGN & GREAT ADVANTAGES
- The Simplest, Safest Extruders
- One Year Warranty
- Wagon Wheel Handle
- The barrel and die simply lift out as a unit (no tools required) so that cleaning, changing dies and loading can be done while you sit or stand comfortably at your work bench.
- The WagonWheel Handle is held in place by a quick release pin. It is removed with a pull so the handle can be quickly set aside whenever it is in the way.
The North Star Big Blue Extruder does not look like or work like any others. It is designed to be simple and safe yet powerful. This model features a 6 x 6 x 12 inch aluminum barrel that holds a full 25 pound pug of clay and can produce extrusions up to 4-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches, without an expansion box. With this extruder, there are no heavy bars or levers to injure head or feet, no hydraulic pumps or air compressors with their inherent hazards. Instead, it is entirely hand driven. Turning the large handle drives a compound rack-and-pinion gear box which dramatically reduces the force needed to make an extrusion. No more than thirty pounds of force at the handle is needed to make an average extrusion!
