hantremmer posted a topic in Equipment Use and RepairI've had an RK3E for a couple of months now. The two-piece splash pan is serviceable, but it fills up quickly and it's a bit of a bore to have to empty it with a sponge or separate it regularly to clean it out. Shimpo are now selling one piece, larger, round splash pan. It has drain holes in it. Unlike the two piece, it looks like you have to remove the wheelhead to fit this model. I wondered if anyone here has one and what they think of it; I'm wondering if it perhaps pushes the potter a too far from the wheelhead to be comfortable. It's also very expensive for a round piece of plastic - it's almost £80 here in the UK. https://www.sheffield-pottery.com/Shimpo-Pottery-Wheel-Splash-Pans-s/366.htm
Hi guys! I bought an old Shimpo RK-2 Ringcone Poppet that came with only half of a two-sided splash pan. I'm attempting to put a full-circle splash pan off, but can't get the wheelhead off to put it in. I got the one tightening screw out that is perpendicular to the wheel shaft but can not get the wheelhead off. Is there more to do? Alternately, is there another two-sided splash pan that works well enough so I don't have to deal with taking the wheelhead off? This one looks actually like an old Brent B splash pan. It fits okâ€”not super tight but I'll take what I can get!
