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....
