I really need to buy a new extruder. I bought one of the 'push' syringe type extruders, and it hurts my hands so bad I don't want to use the darn thing at all!

I've seen sugarshack use the black/red one, and I love that she's able to extrude with one hand and coax the rope into place with the other hand. I'm wondering if this can be done somehow with the Makin's T extruder.

I'm not sure which of these to buy. Any advice for me?

TIA!

Use the Makin's Professional Ultimate Extruder, the green metal one with the twist T top. It's fabulous. I don't believe they stock it at Michael's or JoAnn though; you may need to order it online. I bought mine from polyclayplay.com and the cost, including shipping, was $25.20, which is only 6 dollars more than if I'd bought it with the 40% off at Michael's. Considering how much gas I wasted driving around to different stores trying (without success) to find the darned thing, I should have ordered it on the internet in the 1st place icon_redface.gif.
