A pug mill is used to blend new clay or clay scraps to restore it to a more uniform and workable consistency. Clay is loaded into the feed hopper (closest to motor) and an internal auger pushes the clay along the barrel, through some fine screens before re-compressing the clay and forcing it out the nozzle. Approximately one hour of pug mill use will produce enough pugged clay for an average professional potters days work. Venco have been manufacturing Pug Mills since 1983. Our pug mills are renowned worldwide for their quality. This is reflected by our sales of over 9000 units worldwide.

Venco use the highest quality materials in the construction of the pug mills to ensure a long and reliable service life.
