  1. Handy Techniques

    I use kids thin craft foam for drying mugs upside down to protect the rims. I also use that foam for templates for hand built forms. I have so many self made tools that there are 2 many to mention. joy

    4, 2, 2 3 its a partial guess. joy
  3. What's your Mug?

    My mug preference is a good handle. I have small hands & arthritis, so my grip is poor therefore a thicker handle helps. I have about 4 mugs self made that I prefer,all different in shape & size. They are mostly ones I used for demo when I was teaching. I also like throwing ribs & dents on mugs & often hold under the handle. joy
  4. I have a vl whisper, can’t tell you the model right now but it’s about 7 yrs. old. I’ve thrown for over 40 yrs. & have arthritis so my strength has diminished somewhat but I still find the torque in the whisper much lower than the Skutt.
  5. Over 6oo grams, i find it just doesn’t have the drive. I used to have motorized kick eas wheels. You just don’t feel the strength in the shimpo as you center & throw there is no problem with the skutt. joy
  6. I have a vl whisper & bought a Skutt cause I was frustrated with the lack of torque on the shimpo & I don’t normally throw large pots. I throw mugs & other smaller pots. I do throw larger pots & am so happy with my Skutt that the shimpo is now my trimming wheel. joy
  7. I sign my initials with an old stick pen. My last name is 3 letters 2 small 1 cap so is different. I made a stamp but just singing on leather hard is easier. I had a ring with my family coat of arms & initials, but it wore out. Joy
