LC Machine - Specification | LC Tools

What is LC Machine?

LC machine is a high-end pasta machine designed for conditioning polymer clay. LC Machine was designed in cooperation with engineers and polymer clay community, that is why it is well-engineered and handy for clayers. LC Machine meets even the highest expectation of polymer clay artists and can be helpful for clayers with special needs.

 

What is an accu-drive solution?

Based on our experience using a cordless drill with the Czextruder, it is an ideal solution in terms of performance, price, practicality, and versatility. The drill is connected via a hexagonal adapter (included in the package) and speed is then adjusted by hand. The LC Machine requires approximately 280 - 350 rpm (Rotations Per Minute). Please check your drill’s specifications to make sure that you don’t surpass the maximum rotation speed of 350 rpm.

 

How will the LC Machine be packed? Will there be assembly after unboxing?

Our goal is for you to have as little assembly as possible. Currently, we are offering a fully assembled version of LC Elephant and party assembled LC Squirrel. Please watch the Video of unboxing and assembling LC Machine Squirrel (LINK HERE).

 

How will the LC Machine be secured to the work surface?

The base of the LC Machine will be equipped with 4 special strong magnets. You will attach the metal magnet pads to your table with double-sided tape, which is included in the package. Alternatively, you can screw the metal magnet pads to your table.

Another option is to countersink magnets into your table and screw the pads onto the base of the LC Machine. The principle is the same. Four strong magnets on your table could also be useful for holding other instruments in place.

Once your work is done, you can easily detach your LC Machine from the magnetic pads with one movement. Of course, the pad could serve as a coaster for your coffee mug in the winter!

A final option is to place the LC Machine on the edge of the work surface and secure it using C-clamps. C-clamps are sold at hobby stores and hardware stores. They are not included in the package of LC Machine because we don’t want to sell you something you don’t need or already have.

 

What are the supporting bolts for?

The gap is set by an aluminum knob/wheel. Two black supporting screws prevent the roller frame from sagging under pressure. Thanks to this you can set up gap up to 12 mm / 6 mm (depending on the model).

 

When/How to clean the LC Blades / cleaner blades?

During use, clean the cleaner blades on the rollers from time to time and whenever needed. Watch the video #12: Cleaning the cleaner blades.

 

What is the difference between Squirrel and Elephant model?

The major difference is in positions of the device on the tabletop - due to dimensions of the devices and the crank, you can place Squirrel anywhere on your table. The Elephant can be placed only at the edge of the table.
