Item #: NSSEDRDS6
The North Star Standard 4" Extruder Coiled Rope Die Set contains 6 standard 4" dies that fit North Star’s 4" extruders.They are made from High Density Polyethylene, making them durable and wear-resistant. The top edge of the die cavity is beveled to compact the clay as it passes through, giving a crisp, more solid extrusion. In the hollow dies, there is a bevel on both the interior and exterior portions under each side of the bracket (which holds the center of the hollow dies). In general, the walls of extrusions with an outer diameter of 3.5" or less are approximately 0.25" inch thick, while larger extrusions have 5/16" walls.
These dies all form a simple rounded coil, except that each has an arc cut out on one edge. This allows each coil to be easily aligned with and joined to the one below it.
These dies are great for making handles!
