Christmas Dreamin

I finally did it!  I ordered the Dream Machine for an early Christmas present to myself. 




I had a lot of pain in my shoulder for some time now and after checking with my doctor he told me I had tendinitis in my shoulder rotator cuff.  He said the only way to help it was to stop cranking my machine.


I have a wonderful Atlas 180 with modified blades for easy cleaning but I have not found a motor powerful enough for the amount of clay that I use.  I am looking forward to this new machine with it's heavy duty motor.  My claymate hopes it can crank out my clay without making me so cranky! lol!


I will let you know when it arrives and how it turns out....

Wow! Am so excited for you.
Let us know how it goes - I hate, hate conditioning clay, and it has to be done....

You're going to love it. I have one and I haven't regret spending the money. Super cool!

I'm sorry to hear about your shoulder and happy you got that AWESOME DREAM machine. That being said are you planning on sale you Atlas 180?

Cause I'm interested.

That is so good to know Norma.

Claire, I will definitely let everyone know how it works out. I understand about the conditioning but I sometimes spend hours in one day mixing colors as well.

Tia, I'm not planning on selling my Atlas as the moment. I may use it for when I teach classes or as a backup to use for my transluscent clay. Doesn't hurt to ask though, right?!
