  1. I did already, that's actually how I came to find this website (that thread came up when I was googling creative industries manuals.) Unfortunately when I treid contacting the two people on that thread that had information, they did not respond.
  2. Hello everyone. I've just acquired the parts to an old Creative Industries pottery wheel. My old art teacher gave them to me, under the condition that I find the original plans for this wheel, that is, the schematics as to how this wheel should be put together. He says that this information was originally included with the manual and other information that came with the wheel when first bought. I've tried getting in touch with the company that makes these wheels (Creative Industries is now Speedball), but they do not have any manuals older than 5-7 years...and I'm sure that this wheel is older than that. If anyone has ANY original documents that came with a Creative Industries pottery wheel, I would like to receive a copy. I would be more than willing to pay anyone who could give me some information.
  3. I have an old Creative Industries MP wheel... must've bought around 1986 or so... direct from their factory... I drove down from L.A. and went and picked it up in El Cajon. I don't recall it even coming with an owner's manual back then, if it did... I don't have it anymore. I know that when I bought it Kenton Oakes had just recently purchased the company from the original owner, and they were just beginning to get their feet wet in the business. Recently, late last year I believe... Kenton sold the company to "Speedball" and they make the wheels now. I don't know what their customer service is like yet, but I suppose it will be interesting to see going forward. Have you tried contacting them yet? Sorry I couldn't be more help... good luck refurbishing your wheel. - Ken Hello, I ran across this when tying to research the wheel that I have recently obtained. Its a Creative Industries MP model. I have what appears to be, all of the original information/literature that must have come with it when it was new. I have the following: * A folding 2 page booklet with a photo of a bearded man on the front sitting in front of, and using, the pottery wheel. Above his photo it says Creative industries, variable speed electric potters wheel. Inside there are descriptions of the product, more photos of various bearded men, throwing on the wheel, etc along with information such as , Function, Convenience O Structure, individual adaptability of the wheel, info on the build of the wheel, and on the build and strength of the motor, info on all of the models that were offered, options, Information on the warranty info, Information on the head torque and strength of each model, horsepower of each model, as well as the amount of weight that each model can center, etc... This pamphlet has 3 pages of information. *A 2 page pamphlet titled: Owners Manual for Creative Industries Model HP and MP Wheels. This contains 2 printed pages w/out photos. With paragraphs on Motor, Control Box, Foot petal, Grounded Power Source Very Heavy Loads, Belts, Bearing Service, and Motor Brushes. * one half page size Page with a diagram of the wheel. this is tittles Install Splash Guard As Shown Below. *One half page size page with a diagram of the Wheel Head. Titled: Glide Installation and Wheel Head Adjustment If anyone is interested in receiving a copy of any or all of these just let me know.... Take care.. Hello. I would be very interested in having a copy and I'd gladly pay you. Could we talk about this via email? I'm new to this website so I'm not quite sure how to exchange messages. My email is hstohl@yahoo.com I look forward to hearing from you, thanks in advance.
