The North Star 24" wide Super Slab Roller comes with canvas and a wagon wheel handle. The 24" model is great for both potters and handbuilders and for both private studios and school classrooms.
Like all of North Star's slab rollers, this model is made from carefully designed, rust-free parts, which add longevity to this tool. The North Star Super Series Slab Rollers use a pair of cast and carefully machined 4" diameter high-strength aircraft-grade aluminum rollers and steel drive gears for the maximum compression and best slabs possible. The bushings are machined from high-strength industrial nylon and the remaining moving parts are machined steel. The roller drive features a 4.33:1 reduction gear between the large Wagon Wheel handle and the roller to allow huge slabs to be built by every person, regardless of his/her upper body strength and weight.
The top roller can be adjusted up and down, creating slabs of variable thicknesses from paper-thin to over 2". A reference scale allows setting and repeating openings to within 1/100 of an inch. This 24" Slab Roller will produce clay slabs up to 22" wide, with length depending on canvas size. The design of the North Star 24" Super Slab Roller allows for great flexibility in making slabs. Very thin, translucent porcelain slabs and thick, heavily textured architectural slabs are equally easy. What we love about this roller is that a wide variety of texturing materials, such as our rubber texture mats, can be passed through the machine along with the clay. Slabs can be rolled either direction or reversed on all North Star machines.
The North Star Super Series Slab Rollers are warranted to the original purchaser to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for the life of the machine. This includes even parts that wear in normal use, such as bushings, spacers, gears and spring pins. The only limitations to the warranty are the table tops and canvas that are supplied with each unit and failures caused by abuse or use of the machine for other than its intended purpose.
