The Bailey Clay Extruding “System” is designed to offer easy extruding for both large and small scale clay forms. The system concept refers to the fact that a series of different barrels will fit into a “common” drive frame. Each barrel is designed to cover a specific clay extrusion range, For instance the 5” barrel will comfortably extrude medium size forms. This “overlapping” system approach reduces the overall cost for equipment since only one drive frame is required to plunge all system barrels. See 'Details' for more information.

Extrusion Range: Multiple solid clay coils (single small solid clay coils will not extrude well from this barrel due to the amount of clay the barrel holds- the 4" Barrel is recommended for single solid clay coils), hollow clay tubes from 2" - 3" square or round.
