The Work Horse
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! Die Set Includes: 992A Round: 4 1/2″ OD hollow; 992B Square: 4 1/2″ OD hollow: 992C Hex: 4 1/2″ OD hollow.
