NorthStar Extruders

 

 

There are two standard models of NorthStar extruders. One has a stainless steel barrel, and the other is regular steel with a powder-coated exterior surface, frame and handle. The Stainless and Standard models are identical in shape and capacity. Any NorthStar standard die fits either one.

Between the two models, the Stainless Extruder offers the most versatility. It can be used with just about any clay type, as long as the clay is soft and easy to work with your hands. Because stainless steel won't rust, it is ideal for use with stoneware clays and porcelain. If you're going to use these clay types, the Stainless extruder might be your best choice.

The interior of the Standard exrtuder is plain steel. It should be washed out and periodically protected with a light film of machine oil or silicone lubricant. Without that protection, it may develop light oxidation or rust which can stain your clay. Keep it clean and dry between uses, and you can use the Standard extruder just like the Stainless model.

Remember: both the Standard and the Stainless extruders come with the NS915 Basic Die Set. Several of the dies contain 4 cavities of different sizes. Use the die mask to block off any three of them.

Expansion Box Kit (NS940)

(Shown with a Georgies' glaze pint jar to illustrate scale.)

The Expansion Box is an extruder accessory that allows you to make larger extrusions from your current NorthStar 4" extruder. The kit includes the Expansion Box, die retainer ring and mounting bolts, hex wrench, three piece spacer board and lag bolts, and a sample die (NS9830, the 6" Bread Tray).

The Expansion Box is made of high-quality aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. All the mating surfaces aremachined flat for a tight seal. The die retainer ring (and hardware for it) are made of steel. All outside surfaces are powder-coated with NorthStar's distinctive blue for a durable, lasting finish and years of use.

Standard Dies

Dies on this page fit NorthStar's Standard and Stainless 4" extruders.
Click here for dies that fit the Expansion Box and Big Blue 6" extruders.


(Shown with a Georgies' glaze pint jar
to illustrate scale.)

In the stainless extruder, every part contacting the clay is either stainless steel or plastic, and will not discolor even the most delicate and whitest of porcelains.

NorthStar's Standard dies are made of 1/2"-thick polyethylene, which is extremely wear-resistant and completely non-contaminating. The top edge (facing the clay in the extruder barrel) is beveled to compact the clay as it passes through for a crisper, more solid extrusion. In the hollow dies, there is a bevel on both the interior and exterior portions under each side of the bracket (which holds the hollow dies' center pieces) that helps the extrusion to "heal" after it has been split by the bracket. This bracket fits into a Z-shaped slot machined into the top of the hollow die. The bracket is held in place by the barrel of the extruder. If a hollow die is mounted in place, the center part is automatically in exactly the right place and the wall thickness will be even all the way around.
