I have used a Bluebird Pug mill for the last 30 years or so..............love the pug mill...makes clay that is a wonderful consistency!  Not to hard..soft, ready to throw.  I always wedge this clay as it is just not ready for use without a bit of wedging.  Pugged clay is not as good for hand building...wonderful for throwing and in the extruder for coils added to feet.

The website link has a comma in it ... replace it with a period and it should work.

Pres, thanks for the reminder.  I can pull  5 lbs.up to 18" but end up using water that I then scrape off with a thin metal rib, and a sponge on the inside bottom. And sometimes a heat gun. It would be great to just pull with less water.
