The studio I work at has a Shimpo PM-071 De-airing PugMill (https://www1.ceramics.nidec-shimpo.com/pm-071/). It has four holes on the output barrel and I was wanting to attach a die on there to extrude some flat ribbons (~2.5"x0.5") instead of the round cylinder. I'm not having a lot of luck as the edges of my ribbons are tearing a lot. I was wondering if anyone else had used a die on a pugmill with any success, and if so, what are tips/tricks for making it work
