Unfortunately, Lucy Clay Machine comes without a motor. Instead of a motor, you may rotate the machine using a cordless drill – a drill adapter is included in the package.
Can I rotate the Machine using a cordless drill?
You may rotate the LC Machine using a cordless drill on your own risk. The drill shall be connected via a hexagonal adapter (included in the package). The LC Machine requires approximately 280 – 350 rpm (Rotations Per Minute). Please check the technical specifications of your drill to make sure that you don’t surpass the maximum rotation speed of 350 rpm. SAFETY FIRST!
What are “cleaner blades”? Will they be included in a package?
Cleaner Blades are long white plastic parts that prevent a sheet of polymer clay from spooling onto the roller.
As you know, a bit of polymer clay is usually left on pasta machine blades, so it is necessary to clean the blades every now and then. Otherwise, those leftovers will stick to the next sheet. You can easily remove and clean the blades of the LC Machine. Please watch the video on how to install the Cleaner Blades.
A pair of Cleaner Blades is included in a package.
When/How to clean the cleaner blades?
During use, clean the cleaner blades from time to time and whenever needed. Please watch the video on how to install the Cleaner Blades.
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.
Once your work is done, you can easily detach your LC Machine from the magnetic pads with one movement.
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 big knob/wheel located on backside. Two supporting screws prevent the roller frame from sagging under pressure. Thanks to this you can set up the gap up to 18 mm.

Lucy Clay offers a 2-year warranty on the Machine bought at Lucy Clay store and a 1-year warranty on cleaner blades.
