  1. benzine, which model do you have that you are looking to get rid of? I would prefer to not have an electric wheel. I would really like to get back to the basics of what I learned on. I really enjoyed the feel of the kick pedal and the height was perfect for me.
  2. All, Thanks so much for all the information. This has been of great help and here is to hoping that I can get back into pottery. I am going to visit one of the local artists to see if I can get some wheel time in her studio to get back into it without having to purchase everything right now.
  3. Well if not then feel free to PM me with the links, if this site has the PM function. Or you can list one of the sites and I will start checking them
  4. Thanks for all the help everyone. I looked at the one on danielsmith.....woo hoo they are proud of that thing. But yes that is the type that we used in school. Benzin the one in the photo is an Amaco model 4-402. If found that one while searching the treadle wheel info above. They are also very hard to find it seems.
  5. All, New to the forum... I am in need of some serious help. When I was in high school we had a pottery program and I would love to find the wheel that I learned on. It was a metal framed, 4 leg stand up unit with a push bar on the bottom that you pushed with your foot. It was about 3 feet high and had a back brace and everything. I have found something similar which I found was called a Dan-De Potters wheel, see attached photo. This is as close as I can find to the one that I learned on Any help on this is GREATLY appreciated Ed.
