  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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

  8. While throwing I wear yoga pants & t shirts with a cloth over my left knee to wipe my hands. These clothes take very little room in the darks load. When I trim & hand build attachments I usually put an apron on as I normally don't get dirty at that time. I wear runners & sometimes sandles. I always change footwear when I leave the studio as it's in the basement. I use miracle clothes as they wash out quickly after each use. Joy
  9. We have a nasty squirrel the neighbourhood has named red. She taunts my dog by coming down the tree just to tease & runs back up. I get my exercise trying to catch my dog to stop the barking early in the am. We have other squirrels, deer, sometimes raccoons & lots of birds. We live near the edge of the city. Joy
  10. I used to only use ram's head then started doing spiral with some cut & slam. On fresh clay I wake it up patting & rolling on the work bench & shape with my hands to make a ball. I throw both stoneware & porcelain. Joy
