  1. Hi Tammy i just saw your post- I assume you already disposed of the white lead. but if you still have I would like to acquire it for non- functional work please advise ASAP gina, ginastick2@gmail.com
  2. Hello! I have a Peter pugger 20SS. Can anyone advise how to set the machine after a partial pug so I can continue pugging the rest later? Ie, after pugging a bit, do I leave the vacuum bleed valve and vacuum chamber closed, turn off vacuum and power.

And do I start the mix cycle again even though I am mid-pugging? so, how do I continue pugging where I left off? thanks a lot!
  3. thanks everyone, all really helpful. will study up for when it arrives....and will watch the video. grateful for your help! i am in Canada and they really are not supplying the Bailey here right now.....needs CSA approval and Tucker who used to carry them isn't any longer.

  5. Hello, Can anyone advise me on the Peter Pugger VPM 20 SS, de-airing mixer pugger? i started by looking at the Shimpo NVS-o7 and was advised i can leave a hollow centre in the pug, especially with porcelain. I have heard that the 20SS is really their best model, as the paddles are different, the hopper is bigger, and also the barrel narrows 2x for superior compression. I am not a production potter so am concerned also about the size, but i was also advise i could do a 25 lb batch without compromise of quality. Most important is the quality of the pugged clay and the ease of use. Also, cri
