  1. I took pottery in college as a hobby while completing my degree. I loved it so much that I have slowly been trying to put together a home studio. I would like to get a pug mill/mixer so that I can mix my clay from scratch (dry components), reclaim used clay, and use the de-airing features to save time and work. I am looking into the Peter Puggers, specifically the VPM-9SS and the VPM-20. Is the stainless steal worth the extra money (in the case of these two it would be $100 extra) and a smaller hopper? Or should I go for the bigger hopper and $100 cheaper with the VPM-20. Though I
  2. Dear colleagues, I have to make a decision as I could have a Venco Super Twin in a few days here in my studio what would normally take months to be delivered and I have a big order of lots of plates to throw. In my research about pugmills I have come as far as that I think I have to decide between buying a Peter Pugger vpmss20 and a Venco Super Twin, both stainless steel and de-airing. I throw porcelain and run a studio production, means around 2 tons a year, getting more (sorry, I'm not a native speaker)... I'll need it in the first place for replacing the wedging of new porcelai
  3. Has anyone used a pugmill to mix and extrude concrete before? I know pug mills are used in both ceramics and concrete industrial to make RCC and permeable concrete utilizing a paddle pugmill (at a much larger scale). But I didnt know if running a premix low slump through the pug would act as an ad hoc tybe extrusion for a unique concrete delivery experiment.

  5. Hello. Does anyone in Los Angles have a Peter Pugger (hopefully a 20 or 30) I can come try out? I would just use clay you already have... chat a bit... bring you lunch or a coffee. I am desperate to try one to resolve my purchasing issue. I teach high school, and my last 2 pug mills (Bailey and Shampoo) had big issues. Peter Pugger does not have a single business in LA to test out a unit.
  6. My Shimpo pugmill NVA 07 manual has gone walkabout. I have googled trying to locate help but no luck. Wondering if anyone can give me some leads on this. My oil pressure gauge is playing up and as it is a vintage piece, don' want to spend $ on it. I am finding it way too heavy to dismantle it these days. would rather invest in a slab roller maybe
  7. OK, I've read most of the pugmill/mixer comments on why get one (or not), what size, and uses. I am retired, am not a production potter, and could do without a pugmill/mixer (at least until my hand/arm strength begins to fade). But, at my stage in life, I enjoy using fine equipment in my hobbies and would like to get a small to medium pugmill - not necessarily the smallest size. Now - I need to decide on the manufacturer - Bailey vs Peter Pugger. I know both manufacturers make good equipment but would appreciate hearing pros and cons on these two manufacturers including features, cost, an
  8. Have an old 2nd hand Rathcliffe pugmill made in Stoke in Trent in the uk. Started to get rust spots around the grate so removed it totally. Now sadly just below the grate area is more rusty spots and the large nut inside the main cylinder. Wondering if there's any product out there to combat this or has anyone found an inventive way around this problem? Thanks a lot
  9. Hi, does anyone know the process for changing the oil in a walker pug mill. I think I have an idea but I'm not sure of the right fill plug. Thanks for any advice. It is the model without the reverse switch (early model). I did find a spec sheet from the manufacturer of the motor but no instructions on changing the gear oil.
