Bailey System Barrel 9" (mild steel)
|Availability:||Out of stock|
Part of the Bailey System Extruder line to be used with either the System 1 Manual Drive Frame or the System 3 Power Drive Frame. Drive Frames must be purchased separately.
This is a 'mild steel' barrel with the widest clay extrusion range of any single barrel- medium to large clay forms up to 8" across. Mild steel can rust over time and should be cleaned and dried after each use. (Bailey Clay Extruder System Barrels can be removed from the Drive Frame for easy cleaning.) Stainless Steel is recommended if you are extruding porcelain or are concerned about rust.
The 9" Barrel is unique in that it is essentially a 5" Barrel with an Expansion Box permanently welded to it. If the Die Adapter is used, the Expansion Box can be bypassed and it can be used as a 5" Barrel. As a result, the clay extrusion range of the 9" Barrel covers both the 5" and 9" ranges if the Die Adapter is used.
The 9" Barrel comes with (1) 4" Square Tube Die and (2) 11" x 13" Wood Blank Dies. (Die Adapter sold separately.)
From 9" Expansion Box- Hollow tubes from 4" to 8" across.
With Die Adapter- Multiple solid clay coils (single small solid clay coils will not extrude well from this barrel due to the amount of clay the barrel holds- the 4" Barrel is recommended for single solid clay coils), hollow clay tubes from 2" - 3" square or round.
