Ok after many months using my peter pugger (V30) vacuum model
I started using my wet porcelain scraps thru it
I threw some 5#-6# 8# bowls straight out of the machine last week
They threw great-had legs and was not at all what I recall from the olden days with my alpine vertical pugger(no legs )
I threw them side ways in direction of the pugged slugs.
as well as a few pugs straight up to see if there will be cracking.
Those bowls are getting glazed on Monday and I'll let you know if cracks occure
I was amazed as how well these clay threw.
I'm slowy getting convinced this pugger is a wonder machine
I had been using it only on scrap from the slab roller.
