NorthStar Slab Rollers

 



NorthStar slab rollers are made in two series: Standards (used by hobby potters and students everwhere) and Supers, which are right at home in industrial, production and institutional settings.

  • The Standard machines are built at 18" and 24" wide. Their rollers are 2-1/2" in diameter, and the tables measure 48" long.
  • The Super machines are much heavier: the tables measure 72" long, the rollers are 4" in diameter, and they come with wagon wheel handles. The machine pictured at left is a Super slab roller.
  • Bodies and rollers for both series are made of cast, machined, high-strength aluminum alloy.
  • Gears are made of either nylon or steel, whichever is strongest for that particular application.
  • Tabletops are made of moisture-resistant Medex with melamine surfaces.

All metal surfaces are either zinc-plated or coated with a durable powder coat finish in NorthStar's distinctive blue. Virtually no maintenance is required, beyond keeping the machines clean.

All NorthStar slab rollers have two rollers, much like the wringers of old-fashioned washing machines. The handle turns the bottom roller, which cannot move vertically. As the bottom roller turns, it drives the top roller through a train of gears. The upper roller turns, and can be adjusted either up or down for slabs of any thickness from paper-thin to 2" thick. A wide variety of other texturing materials and objects can be passed through the machine along with the clay.

 

Porta-Roller (NS501)

The Porta-Roller was designed for home and studio clay artists with limited space and teachers who move between multiple classrooms (or schools). The rollers are 18" wide, with two "tabletops" that measure 18x24". Slabs from the Porta-Roller can measure anywhere from paper-thin to 2-3/4" thick and 16" wide.
