I use a Bluebird 440s de-airing that I bought used.It is aluminum
barrel but I use for reclaiming stoneware.Works well but small hopper
and does not seal up to keep residual clay from drying if not used on
regular basis.
When teaching I bought two Peter Puggers.We had a VPM20 aluminum
barrel for stoneware.A VPM9-SS, stainless steel for porcelain.Both
were de-airing.Wonderful machines, got lots of use recycling
reclaim.Hopper was big and served as a mixing chamber and pug mill, so
one could add amendments to the clay and mix before pugging.These
machines could be easily sealed up to prevent clay from drying between

 Hi guys. The last time I owned a pugmill was 22 years ago, before I
came to
 the USA.
 I am considering one or probably 2 at this stage, stainless steel for
 porcelain and another for stoneware clay.
 What do I have to look for before I buy? Is it worth it to buy second
 If so, what should I look for? Thanks again.

 Best wishes,

 Antoinette Badenhorst
