Here are the simplest, safest extruders available for small to medium extrusions - the kind most of us do most of the time.  They have proved their utility and durability year after year.North Star extruders do not look like or work like any others.  They are designed to be simple, safe and inexpensive.  Both models feature a 4 inch square steel barrel tapered at the top for easy loading.   Each comes with a long extension handle to give extra leverage for small extrusions or stiff clay.Every extruder comes with 8 coil dies, 2 handle dies, one square coil, one hex coil, a blank die and a die mask.  Several of the coil dies contain 4 cavities of different sizes and the die mask is used to block off any three of them.  The Accessory Die Kit, which may be purchased separately, contains a stainless steel Z-Bracket (die brace), 4 coil dies, 2 ribbon dies and 6 hollow dies.All dies are made of 1/2 inch thick polyethylene, which is extremely wear-resistant and completely non-contaminating.  The top edge of the die cavity is beveled to compact the clay as it passes through, giving a crisp, 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 center of the hollow dies) that helps the extrusion to "heal" after is has been cut apart by the bracket.  This bracket fits into a Z-shaped slot machined into the top of the hollow die and is held in place by the barrel of the extruder.  If a hollow die is mounted in place, the center part of the die is in exactly the right place and the wall thickness will automatically be even all the way around.

Note that in the stainless extruder, everything that comes in contact with the clay is either stainless steel or plastic and will not discolor the most delicate porcelain even if clay is left in the machine.
