Plastic bag in extruder

Recommended Posts

In another discussion area Marcia asked me ....

 

One question ...you mention previously how you use a plastic bag liner in your extruder. Could you remind me how exactly you did that. It made sense when I read it a year or 2 ago.

 

The answer is to take a plain plastic grocery type bag, fill with clay and shape it into the size of the barrel of your exteuder. Then cut out one of the bottom corners and place that corner over the extrsion opening. Fold over the top of the bag and extrude as usual. When done simply pull out the whole bag and you only have to clean up the opening.

Lazy me!

The slim plastic bags newspapers are delivered in work really well, too . . . and they are shaped more like extruder barrels. Just cut out the closed end. Cut them in half for multiple pugs. And don't forget to recycle them when done.
