Big Blue Extruder

North star big blue extruderThe 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!

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.

Standard Extruder – Not Being Manufactured Anymore

Norh Star standard extruderHere are the simplest, safest extruders available for small to medium extrusions – the kind most of us do most of the time.  They have proved their utility and durability year after year.

North Star extruders do not look like or work like any others.  They are designed to be simple, safe and inexpensive.  Both models feature a 4 inch square steel barrel tapered at the top for easy loading.   Each comes with a long extension handle to give extra leverage for small extrusions or stiff clay
