North Star's 24" Standard Slab Roller Package comes with a 24" Standard Slab Roller, a 14 gauge steel table, 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 24" Clay Slab Roller has two rollers, which function like the wringer of an old-fashioned washing machine. Both rollers have a small diamond pattern ("knurling") machined directly into the metal to grip the canvas. The bottom roller is turned by the slab roller handle, but does not move up and down. As the roller turns, a train of gears drives the upper roller, and as the two rollers turn, slabs are produced. 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.
Table measures 48 inches long and 36 inches high.
Heavy Duty Canvas
The design of the North Star 24" 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 Standard Slab Roller table frames are made from 14-gauge steel. Tabletops are of moisture-resistant Medex with a melamine surface. Metal surfaces are zinc plated or coated with a durable powder coat finish. Virtually no maintenance is required, and the simplicity of the design ensures that any repair ever needed will be quick and easy.
