I wanted to buy one and wanted to know if it works for making hair and boarders? Which is best?

I have the Makin and live it. It's green and has a twist handle instead of a squeeze handle which I really like.

I also have the green Makin and love it so much I bought a second one for when I'm using multiple colors!

Definitely love my Makin. I add a smear of veg. shortening when I'm kneading my fondant to put inside. Makes it come out much easier and smoother....

While the Makin is nice, the Artway is far superior. Even the small ARtway has a capacity that dwarfs a Makin. Check out http://www.artwaytools.com/. They have a lot of discs (Many of which are totally useless for cake people however). STill they have a great selection.

I have the black and red gun, the green Makins with the twist handle and I just purchased the Walnut Hollow clay gun. It's almost identical to the Makins except it has a crank handle (like a pepper mill) that I really like. Hubby is so relieved. I had been nag... uh... I mean, politely requesting that he make the twist handle into a crank. Now he doesn't have to!

I like having multiple clay extruders so when I'm doing mulitple colors, I don't have to keep emptying and cleaning the same extruder. I'm so spoiled. icon_smile.gif

Lovin that Artway extruder. Bookmarked and put on Christmas list. icon_smile.gif

I purchased one of those GIGANTIC extruders (found it at Bass Pro - it's for making deer sausage). It's collecting dust, tho, because my hands are too small to squeeze the trigger.
