Thanks Skutt (another wheel thread)!

Recommended Posts

Local Craigslist sighting, a Steven Hill (don't look, it mine)!

Curious if the warrantee transfers to 2nd owner, I rang Skutt support this afternoon.

Laura (a real person!) confirmed, the warrantee does transfer! She also traced the serial and passed along the date of sale, confirmed the model, etc.

Wow, thanks!

If I score the wheel, I'll post an update :rolleyes:; if not :(... I'll keep looking.

Liking it!

Busy during the week, have taken it for a spin just twice now.

It's a bit noisy - not as bad as the recent thread - I'm thinking it will quiet down after some use. The previous owner said he'd logged twenty hours, maybe so (shh, I doubt it).

The pedal's great; precise control at slow speeds.

As advertised, when a load is applied (centering, etc.), the wheelhead slows - it doesn't compensate the way the Brents at school do; to maintain speed, throttle the pedal, or just let'r drag. I don't mind it (I am just a rank beginner, however). The pan is cast aluminum. I don't mind scooping it out vs. carrying a plastic pan; it cleans up easy.

That's the first form off the wheel in the pic.

Jack's mad! He prefers extemporaneous shots vs. being posed. Sorry Jack!

Although right handed, I'm a clockwiser; to me it makes sense to work on the left side, right hand in.

Again, I was impressed by Skutt Support; thanks to Laura.

See you inna funny papers.

I believe there is a switch on the bottom of the motor to reverse the rotation. I have a Thomas Stewart that looks identical that has a reversing switch.

Jack is a Nanday Conure, a two time rescue bird - my lil' pal.

I'm curious about the adjustments, however, I'm liking how it is set for now.

Clockwise was requirement, the switch was the first thing touched and tested!

We were just reflecting on the equator an' th'fact that we've never been t'other side ...'cept Jack, of course.

I'm enjoying perusing the threads here.

So that's the Steven Hill version 1/2HP?  I'm looking at ordering one now (new). Evidently comes with leg extensions, SSX drive, and the head extension.

As a package cheaper than building one with separate parts.

Hi Rex,

Yep, that's my wheel.

The selling price was a bit more - he just wants you to lookit his propane setup, err...

...workin' on lidded jars for ceramic class, mug for a friend, bowls w/o the "beginner" lump, lol

Been watchin' for a kiln the since wheel landed.

Note that many of the deeply discounted new models may have less than the quoted five years remaining onna warrantee? Call Skutt.

You're gonna like that Rex.

Just brought home a Skutt 1027, it's an older model, but (seems like) a deal!

Skutt Support - thanks again Laura - and Tech, Daniel, right there with tips on what to check for, what element replacement would cost, etc., thanks Skutt!

On to wirin' up 60 amp circuit...
