Ok I thought I would never say this but it looks like I'm the owner of a used pug mill. I do own an old vintage Alpine vertical pug mill past 30 years but am giving it away to a friend .
I just cut a deal on a larger peter pugger newer model VPM 30 power wedger with the stainless and vacuum technology in it. I am not planning on running my porcelain thru it as it distroys the clays legs from what friends say with porcelain . I plan on running our slab roller scraps thru it to rework them as well stone are for salt kiln pots.
Looks like it holds 85#s of clay
I did get a fair price on this and I know going in it will NEVER pay for itself-it may make less stress on my right wrist that has been surgically compromised -it does not take to wedging well anymore. I know use my left hand more for the spiral .
I'll post some photos and later in spring let you all know on a review of this big boy. It weighs #400's and is on wheels-came from a High school in midwest.
