I'm preparing to make a couple dies out of the blanks, that came with my new extruder.
In the past, I have used a die that made four half inch coils at a time. This was very handy, and will be a big improvement to my two hand held extruders.
Would there be any benefit to adding a fifth opening? So it would be four half inch holes towards the "Corners" (It's a circular die), and one in the middle.
Would this be pointless, would it weaken the die too much, etc?
Also, I'm trying to think of what to do with the other die. I could make it a handle extruder, though I do like to teach the students to pull their handles. Not sure what other shapes I would regularly need.
