I had a clay extruder and yes it was a cheap one, my advice buy the correct thing and the Makin's is the correct thing. It is so easy to use and with plenty of discs you can make some fantastic things. Yes not cheap but believe me well worth the money and if you sell your stuff you will make it back very quickly.

This may be more expensive than the extruders you have to push down manually, but it is definitely the one for people like me who struggle with getting lids off jars. It is really easy to use, you get a good, smooth extrusion of clay with no effort whatsoever, and with 20 different discs, the range of extruded shapes is great. I would have preferred the half circle to be slightly smaller, but that is a really minor gripe. If you want a professional finish, this is ideal, though obviously, as with all extruders, the clay comes out matt.

I really like this product, it has given me loads of ideas for making stuff, and it is well worth the price.

Initially the delivery and price were gr8/ the extruder looked a good quality/ and I really enjoyed using it for a few days.
The effects on the polymer clay were just amazing!
I noticed the clay caked up the screw threads a lot which needed cleaning constantly between each single use.
I forgot to do this once and the front stayed locked onto it. So I had to force it off which damaged the screw thread/ resulting in it not being able to cope with the pressure and the front comes off constantly/ rendering this gadget useless.
Looking at other shops selling this gadget it says: Makin's clay on the extruder/ the one I purchased does not say this.
And on the wrap it says:[...]
Since I only got a few days use out of it... i would not advice to buy.

Wow how did I ever get on before with the old straight push extruder? This is a thoroughly professional tool that does not need superman to operate it. The screw down works sooooo easily and it is a dream to clean up afterwards. Don't waste your money buying the other cheaper types. And the price / service was spot on.

Tried this out only once to see it it worked it is excellent. The sugar paste came out really easy. I loved the fact you could make really thin string and those with lots of holes so one can make hair. Great Took a lilttle longer than most things from Amazon but that is because it came from the states. s till good service

Makins extruders are the best when it comes to Polymer Clay and I was glad to find that I could buy it direct through Amazon as it seems impossible to get them from the UK at the moment. They are much more hard wearing than other brands on the market. Just make sure that you thoroughly condition and warm your clay before using and this will last you a long time.

This is a great device. The turnin handle can be a bit stiff, and the one I have squeaks horrendously, but it does the job and does it well. Bit of a pain to clean, but I imagine that's true of all similar extruders.

First, I'm delighted to see that this is now being offered at a fraction of the price I paid for mine, since in my disappointing experience the lower price is a better reflection of build quality. Granted, I've had this extruder for a while now, but it's been used, gently, according to the Makin's instructions, only 3 or 4 times at most. So I was gobsmacked to have it break today, in the first moments of using a brand-new Claycore attachment. It's a fun tool, and in the couple of times I used it, I made some great things, but reading various reviews and comments, so many people seem to have issues with this breaking, I won't be buying another. The Claycore discs will be going on eBay, having only had seconds of use. Meanwhile, looking on the bright side, I now have an excuse to try the new Czextruder, which is rumoured to be a better investment. Oh, and I suppose I can use the barrel of the old extruder as a baking support for circular things ...

I have a damaged "Makins Clay Extruder". The thread on end stripped due to poor thin metal

It has only been in use for 8 months and that is not consistent use.

I have tried to get this returned and replaced but the supplier "Stuff 4 Crafts" are not interested in assisting me with this problem and have washed their hands of this and handed me over to the manufactures in Japan....

I am waiting to hear back from them, but pretty much guess I wont... that is £25 down the tubes... an expensive exercise for anyone wishing to embark on this product..

I am a very unhappy customer with this product and with the customer feedback from suppliers. If you are to purchase though a supplier, please use one who can guarantee you some returns if good are damaged
