In Topic: Pregnancy And Working In The Studio?

One of many hormones that are released when pregnant loosens joints, so care is needed with pressure and weight.

All the best! ( I have 2 "babies" age 18 and 19)

In Topic: Pugmill As Extruder - Will It Work?

Chilly, - "So long as you have space to hide it and space to mount if for using, you DO have the space!"


What's cool is even if your suggestion is not fitting for me, it will probably give someone who wants an

extruder ideas for installing theirs. 

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear enough in my earlier comment, but I am not looking to get an extruder.

I am looking forward to talking to some tech support people about the pugmill dies tomorrow. I will post the outcome. 

 Battening down the hatches now for a possible blizzard tomorrow night!

karen, you do have room for an extruder.  bolt a 2x6 upright onto the leg of the table holding your pugmill.  bolt the extruder to that just high enough to not be in the way.


it looks as though you share your space with a vehicle.  too bad. 


Yes, on days like today, 6"+ of snow, or bitter cold nights, I pull my car in so no room for anything outside of that leg. Also need to wedge there. Other side would interfere with the functionality of the table. Thanks so much for all the suggestions.

Oops yeah, thanks.




Oldlady has a Bailey and I think you said you have a Shimpo?.


If you do get an extruder you will use it for other things as well.





Oops, yeah thanks!


I can use my slab roller to make the long thin "extrusions" if need be. 


Last kid is off to college in Sept. We are moving from MA to NJ. Hopefully

we will have a bigger garage for me to take over where we move and I 

will have room for an extruder.  Here is a couple pictures of my studio.

The shelves and table on the right go up to the door frame. On the other

side of the door is a rain barrel with hooks on the wall above it for mops etc..

The other side is equally full with shelving and a tiny area for seated plastic

cartons and lawn signs.

oldlady, I will call the manufacturer on Monday. Do you have the same model that I do?


Hmm it sounds like there are 2 unwanted guests at this party, Gravity (thanks Mark C), and Resistance.
