Tip: If working with metal clay, save the clay you collect then add it to your fresh clay or use to make your own metal clay slip (paste).
Remove the T-handle end from the barrel.
Note: The disc may remain on the clay on the plunger, remove the disc then clean any remaining clay from the surface. Remove any clay from the plunger.
Use a tool to remove the oh-ring from around the end of the plunger, then clean the ring and under and around where it rested.
Use a tool to clean the inside of the barrel.
