Meet the R5 Middle Ridge Handheld Clay Extruder, one of our R series Handheld Clay Extruders! The R5 slices through a slab to make a shape with a ridge in the middle. Use the tool’s variable-depth ski and DiamondCore® Tools’ advanced blade technology to produce feet for slab-built platters, dishes or plates, as well as handles for mugs, pitchers and other vessels. Just slice it, cut to length and attach.

    CAUTIONS:

    TIP:

    For best results, use these foot and handle-making tools when the clay is not extremely wet or sticky. The clay tool blade should be clean and dry. Ideally, pull the extrusion up and out as it is being formed, or fold back the sides of the slab, so the extrusion pops up and out.
